  • My only complaint with this video is the horrendous clashing of prints. Striped jacket with a spotted bag... ridiculous

  • The main misconception people have about progressing to smooth parallel turns is where to place your weight/balance. You want to be centred over your DOWNHILL/OUTSIDE ski, and you can see in the video there’s a tendency to lean into the turns on that inside ski. I was a ski instructor in the Canadian Rockies for 3 years, Mike seems like the type of guy that would be a joy to teach!! Amazing progress hope you’re keeping at it 🤙🏻

  • I learned to ski last year. It was a one-week school vacation on the Kitzsteinhorn. I knew absolutely nothing about skiing except that it was insanely awesome. I had troubles turning left. Like you have to put more weight on the right ski and hold it like that while pointing left. I mastered the basics in 4 days. On the 5th day, my group went to the last stop to the top of the mountain. While I was practicing at the top I really felt satisfied and I was very happy. When we were all coming down the mountain our trainer challenged us to ski down a black path. There were Green, Blue, Yellow, Black, and Purple paths. The Black one was before the hardest. I fell only once and it was while skiing across the very uneven path and there was a big bump. But I was the first at the bottom. I was very thrilled to ski very fast. In the end, I did the V position to brake. My trainer was impressed, she also said that I was like a pro. I still have her phone number just to remind me how an awesome trainer she is. The slalom was very easy for me. I had more fun doing it.

  • The visibility there was good but I understand why a beginner would take a day of. As a beginner at about his level i had a day so foggy that you could barely see 20m ahead. I followed my dad(an experienced skier) down a blue run and it was very scary. We also had a few friends with us, also beginners. It was a crazy day and we did only a few runs. I(now a good skier) recently had an even worse day where no one was skiing, it was so foggy it was hard to keep your balance, had a feeling everything around me was white, couldn't see a difference between snow and air. Crazy times!

  • In America, there is I think 3 or 4 levels of slopes in skiing and snowboarding so instead of red runs we have the easiest which is a green circle the kind of intermediate which is called a blue square and the hardest which is a black diamond I think some slopes are even called double black diamonds which is even harder but im not completely sure about that

  • This is something i can really relate to it. I learned skiing in 3 -4 days when I was 24. My progression was very similar to Mike. I remember at night I felt legs moving, it was a bad sensation caused from too much practice. by the way I learned to ski. Then I was able to do a black track. So the secret is just practice and never surrender.

  • I remember when I went to Italy, and to the alps. That's where I learned how to skii. It took me 30 minutes to get the basics and then I took the 40m hill, and then proceeded to go to the red lane. I nailed it. But then I stretched a muscle in my back and had to go to the hospital Edit: everyone's speaking about the weather. Bruh I had to skii with a solid 10 M of viability with fog
