The biomechanics of expert skiing are discussed in bite-sized tech talks and on snow sessions where you experiment with and refine them throughout nine levels of skill development, from gliding on green slopes to expert skier, see the contents.
Intro (intermediate) - remove ineffective movements from your skiing and refine your weight transfer and balance on the outside ski, effective use of the inside foot etc
Effective (advanced) - break out of the "intermediate plateau" by improving fore/aft, carving and speed control, upper body etc
Performance (expert) - master the black slopes and expert skiing by refining flexing, coiling and speed control while carving
Racer (refined) - special level, dedicated to racers and coaches, to refine the technique to the max and take full advantage of it in gates
Different workouts: progressions and sessions to target specific areas of skiing.
