New knee, no problema!

Skied all afternoon today, lots of moguls and rough stuff, some ice, felt great. No joint surface pain.

Technical Comparison of many national Demo Teams.

This is a corridor and no other pre-set skiing parameters were asked for in these runs. How do you analyze the quality of the skiing in this case?

PMTS Direct Parallel has some basic skiing criteria for any free skiing situation and they are not restrictive or arduous. The basic skiing criteria for free skiing include:

-Staying in control
-Using the tool
-Efficiency for movement
Staying in Balance

This is the criteria  I would use to go about rating or analyzing the skiing in these runs.

Nation Demo Team skiing compared.

Interesting comparison. The two in the grey are Australian, the red is Austrian and green is US. Alignment is playing a huge factor here in the way they ski. No two ski alike. The two Australians have the best set up and are skiing with the most consistent turns and most freedom and relaxation. Even the Australians have some differences in their techniques, but are the most efficient of the 4. Congratulations to them. The other two demo skiers are compensating and adjusting for their alignment in almost every turn. The green jacket skier is the farthest from connecting consistent, round, controlled turns.
