Photo Friday is a quick blog capturing skiers on the slopes. It’s a journal of present and past photographs captured from resorts across North America.
Here’s a photograph I took during an exam situation of a skier performing a dynamic parallel run. You can see the snow flying off his skis early in the turn which suggest early grip and expert performance. This skier was doing well with balance over the outside ski while hips and lower joints moved IN to increase edge angle and impulse.
Type of Turns
This skier was performing some Dynamic Parallel turns. The speed and slope were expert level.
Time of Year
This photo was taken in late March at Mont Ste Anne (Quebec, Canada)
The photo was captured during mid morning and was on a Black Run
Conditions were not quite spring like, but got a little soft half way through the day.
