Nice to see you out there Gary. Just me and my almost 9 year old today. Harrowing first run as she got way too out of control down N'E. The rest of the afternoon was some nice improvements for her. Worked on shin pressure, hands and a technique I learned with the race crew this week called the "thumper". Basically lightly lifting and tapping the uphill ski on turns - helps to track the uphill ski more parallel with the DH ski and break out of a slight wedge turn. She was surprisingly responsive to my suggestions today. Not like her. She's really falling in love with skiing this season and we are both proud of her improvement.
