Hi Todd,

Great video! For me, I am blown-away by the skiers ability to flex and absorb the mogul, then do leg extension to keep the skis on the snow in the trough of the bump. Of all the skills advocated to ski bumps, deep flexing is, at least for me, the most difficult body position to get into. Heck, it's demanding to do on dryland: try to lower your butt onto a chair and then stand-back up.

While watching on you-tube, there was a HH video about skiing bump skills using his essentials. Harald stressed flexing, tipping and counter acting the hips, ie turning the hips away from the direction on the turn.

It's still, at least, 4 months before I get to boot-up. But, summer is in decline. Much training to do.
