There are good days and then there are really good days!
I feel like I have had a lot of good training this year, but today was by far the best day! Snow was epic, weather was perfect, a course to myself, but best of all is that I think I have found what need in order to take the next step in my skiing.
Skiing today worked better than ever before and its all thanks to Oskar Andersson who has been coaching me here in Verbier. The first few days when I was here alone I was skiing up and down thinking I did a pretty darn good job. When he showed up we free skiied for a few days and when he advised me to try a more narrow stance I figured I would give it a try, as most of the things he has been saying all winter has worked really well. I will admit that I was a little sceptical as I did not really get why I should have a more narrow stance, in my head that would just create a smaller platform and less balance. But I gave it a try and it changed my skiing a ton over night.
Over the past few month I have had a hard time to get the outside ski to grip coming into the turns and my hip has ended in a low position, today when I look at the video I feel like I grew 20 cm over night as my hip is now high and strong! I know its a lot of tech mumbo jumbo talk, but I am just so excited that I have found this so I had to give it a few sentences!
More training tomorrow, body feels ready and good to go even after 10 runs in the course today!
