Harb Ski Systems

Tricks are for Kids!

Skiing is all about having fun!

"Harald's" Ski Photo for the Day: March 19th.

Harald Quote: 
"Skiing is no longer about turning your skis. It about changing edges without turning." 
Flexing to release and going through transition flexed, does not mean you are in the back seat.
Most people like to see photos of the big angles and sensational steep turns. But almost more important is how you get there. Here are some photos of the transition, where the turn is literally built. This position of the lowered hips, tipping legs and skis is normal if you want to become an expert skier.

The "Winter Tour" is not over yet! Last week at Yellowstone, in Montana.

                         Lone Peak at Big Sky
         I'm back from "Ski Paradise", but not done yet, next is the "PMTS Direct    Parallel", Instructor Accreditation, and then we are off to Europe for the Austria Camp.

One of the ungroomed runs out of the trees.

Skiing the crud and bumps on the "Rock and Roll" skis, by Head. With the right PMTS, counter acting movements, any ski will turn correctly, in any snow.

Carving it up on perfect snow.

Laying it over with a flexed inside leg and counter-acted hip.

  The inside arm and hand lead the arc, flexing the inside leg, dropping the inside hip, brings huge carving angles.

Skiing the crud on Head Peak 84 Skis.

The key to "skiing fun", in crud and powder on "Good" wider skis is; tipping the feet and boots. Most skiers think you have to huck and chuck your upper body. Keep the feet and skis together, tip the inside ski first and stand on the outside ski, its not that technical.
