any video showing how NOT to ski?

Postby JeffOYB » Fri Feb 24, 2017 9:26 am

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 mistakes naturally. prolly this would be easy to find in back of pack event video.

i'd really like to find some vids showing uphill v1 toilet seat and uphill diagonal fail. could prolly eaily put together a compilation vid from back of packers. quite a few comparisons might be possible this way. could put split screen with correct method across from mistake.

Sorry I can't answer your question. But I have a neat American Birkebeiner DVD where the classic race was "filmed" with a single fixed camera on one of the first big climbs --just wave after wave of skiers going past. The footage is over an hour long. In any case, it is remarkable to watch the progression (or rather, regression) in technique as the leaders go through first followed by each subsequent wave of classic skiers. It's quite striking and fun to watch.
