I would consider myself an experienced and competent skier and once doing more than 2 carved turns on a red I'm absolutely flying and need to skid to stop myself dying!!!!


Finishing the turn is the key to keeping your speed under control.

I was always worried about carving blacks as I had the same issue but not so worried now after the lessons I had a few weeks ago. Was concentrating so hard on following instructor that didn't even realise we were on a black run until noticed the colour of the markers as we were carving on and back onto the piste.

This is the video that accompanies the photos in the other thread.

Hope it does him justice.

It was awesome. I have skiied since I was eight (which was a long time ago) and this was one of my favourite places to ski. Most runs we had pretty much to ourselves (even at half term). Great reds and blacks and whilst we didn't have snow whilst we were there, I could see that there was a lot of easily accessible off piste.

Kids had a ball especially once they had their confidence and started skiing the tree lines

Going back next year twice now

Like so many things, there are aesthetic choices to be made and it's hard to judge from two photos. For me, once the outside ski is no longer fully engaged, it's not skiing, just squatting on the inside ski. It's a fine line, but to each his own.


I agree. Not a fan of the body carving thing myself either but when you see the video. The way he skiis is not body carving just extremely laid out race carving. It is a true delight to watch. Video is on the way just trying to do the footage justice with the editing.

I'm not saying I was in quite the same position but trying to get there. Butt on the snow though which I was well chuffed with.

Truly inspiring to follow someone so good. Well worth the money for the two private lessons I had. Feel like my skiing has taken on a new level.

I need to move to the snow.

Video on the way which truly shows his skills.

Thought i would post some photos a captured off of my GOPRO during a carving lesson I had last week in Superdevoluy.

I felt like I was ten again chasing the instructor down the mountain. Instructor was Eric Brocardi from Superdevoluy (France).

Awesome fun skiing like this for two hours solid. Legs were a bit sore.

Not sure of a particular guide but get a good one and it will be awesome. Loads of off piste down in the Coll de St Bernard. Be careful in Italy as it is illegal to be offpiste if the avalanche risk is red (i believe)
