Interesting, Todd. Have you considered that Ron may have been right about skis and technique as well??   :-\


Long, long ago when the Earth was young and shaped skis were new and skis were cambered, Ron was a big Head Supershape fan.  Then entropy set in ....  Chaos and Darkness fell upon skierdom.  A Dark Age of skiing arose during which rational knowledge was replaced by mysticism and the words of false prophets ("132-98-123 R 17.2m CARVE IT. FLOAT IT. CONQUER IT ALL!")  Size and rocker became king. 

As for me, I steadfastly remain an old-fashioned empirical rationalist.  After listening this weekend to instructor clinics at 2 areas, ski patrol training at one, and watching a well-known PSIA-RM examiner ski a coupla runs, I'm more convinced than before that only a small clique of coaches headquartered in Dumont is right about technique.  That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.  (And the more wrong I am, the more stubbornly I'll stick to it  ::) )
