Shaking legs fixed!

In case any of you who gave me such excellent advice about my shaking legs on steep slopes are interested: a lesson in chamonix, particularly the exercise of traversing the slope on one ski, eventually made me realise that I simply wasn't putting my weight properly forward on the balls of my feet - especially on my left leg when turning right - when descending and turning on steep slopes. Thus loss of control. Problem now sorted and skiing improved immensely! Now I just have to summon up to courage to begin tackling black pistes...

Great news.

Don't think of them as black pistes, but more like dark red ones
Great, thanks, that should help!
That's great. It's amazing how much more balanced you feel doing that exercise when you are forward in your boot.

Yep. The fact that I couldn't do the exercise on my left leg at all, but was relatively easy on my right leg, was the eventual giveaway.
Great news, well done.

Now you've just got to sort out the shaky bladder on the dark reds
