Nicole/Maple reach in turn

Recommended Posts

I notice both from the Nicole Arthur video and watching Maple ski they do this realese the handle pre turn failry low then almost a cork screw motion twist and reach up as the boat takes the handle. This seems to set up a nice snap in the ski while it comes back around.

Is this unique to Andy, is there a term for it and how many of you do this as a hard wired method in your pass?

I have played with Posting. It will give you a big turn but like @ShaneH‌ says you better have some skills first.

@cragginshred I'm still rehabing from knee surgery so its been so long since I've skied that I don't remember what I was doing, lol. I did try that for a few weeks though and then stop focusing on it. Had bigger things to work on. I'm hoping to do some free skiing Tuesday, see how it goes.

The virtue of posting allows the ski to continue on an outbound trajectory to the apex without a load from the boat causing the ski to arc inwards. Your really allowing the Ski to take the handle out to maintain a tight line instead of the boat..It is a very advanced maneuver and comes into play at 35 off and shorter.


If you are skilled enough you can do it on a 32 off opener, but don't need to to run the pass..I totally concur with the advice Shane gave you.
