As this has now kinda become my season skiing journal thread, too...
Day 21! I'm an adult!
Tried something completely new and out of my comfort zone: drove & tail-roped an unloaded toboggan, then attempted a loaded one (driving) but decided half the run was enough on my weak leg. Was getting a bit tired, snow was thick, and our training night goal is always "learn stuff, but don't get hurt!". That, and upcoming DivaEast! Still don't know if loaded toboggans are in my future, but got some good advice and worked up quite a sweat. Swept a couple cruisers with the night patrol crew for a nice cool-down under snow-like (mixed graupel?) flurries.
Smoother turn linkage was starting to click on a few runs, overcoming my tendency to hold onto pressuring the outside ski too long around the turn, even when engaging the LTE. The whole "tip lead" discussion (thanks @MissySki
) has apparently helped me quite a bit these past couple days!
Absolute success tonight! Progress, not perfection. Always a journey!
Tomorrow will be a day off to do important non-skiing things and rest up
Keep having fun out on the slopes, everyone!
