Re: Bad weather?

It looked good!

I just clicked thru it quickly and didn't see any scary fast downhill turns so that would help w safety.

Otherwise, rain might just help keep them cooler! I hate overheating.

Nice to see the striding.

Re: Therese Johaug doped

Is it conceivable that an effective PED could be introduced via lip balm? If not, and it would be detectible, then the only reason to have it in the lip balm would be to commit a crime AGAINST the person using! ...Get them busted.

Re: The danger of roller skiing

I have to agree that it seems unduly risky. People say I'm risky when I do slow biking without a helmet, but I understand that risk and know it to be tiny. Fast rollerskiing is a BIG risk! One should be realistic: rollerskis have design flaws regarding pebbles and control. One should adjust accordin...

Re: Terms when teaching skating...

Everything is always either selling good or bad. Our terms significantly affect our popularity. If our technique names use machine terms then we will attract machine type people. Probably there are fewer of those than normal people. Look to other sports and see how they name their moves. The two-ste...

Re: Terms when teaching skating...

i still don't think offset is a 'selling' term, but it's functional. we need appeal in addition to function. people might not really know the waltz or anything technical in terms of dance or music but when they hear it i think it seems nice and says 'dance' and 'common dance' and the Gear 4 is the d...

Re: Biking beats Skiing for Winter Adventure...why?

if skiers were like bikers they'd be creating fun sexy sled packing kits that let them haul fun stuff super easily. the sleds would be on runners that set a track as they went. ...or something.

Re: Terms when teaching skating...

"V" seems w/o content so best to throw it away. ...Is V a shorter way to say "skate"? I mean, they're both one syllable but V is fewer letters. Ha! Any term that learners like or resonate with or somewhat makes sense should be preferred over terms that have no connection to easil...

Terms when teaching skating...

Does anyone when teaching skiing skating have a hard time telling people the name V2alternate? Open field is silly also. I've started telling people that it is the waltz. They will kind of accept V1 but even that is rather lame when you think of it. I might prefer silly skateboarder move names

any video showing how NOT to ski?

i think it might be handy if a ski lesson video showed mistakes. do any Youtube videos show mistakes that you know about? i've seen stopaction photos in magazines with experts showing us what not to do and usually they are fakier than heck. it might be best to use footage of people making the mistak...
