I teach lots of newbie skiers.
Do NOT ski the course 1,2,3,4,5,6
The key is trying to get a pattern of timing. So start by cheating the gates going to 1 ball. Cheating meaning simulate them being 10' or more closer to the pregates. Then ski 5' inside of ball 1,2,3,4,5 and then ski around 6. Once that is accomplished ski or shadow 1,2,3,4 then ski around 5 and 6. Then shadow 1,2,3 and ski around 4,5,6. Do this until you can run the course.
After running the course add the gates.
If you try by running gates followed by running it 1,2,3...... And you mess up then you stop skiing and the entire rhythm and timing does not get recognized. We have a mini course inside of our standard course. So my students run the mini and start adding standard buoys from the finish to the start.
Just skiing around random buoys will get you nothing. After you learn to run the course and you mess up shadow the buoy you messed up at and get back into it. Until then learn the course backwards. It works
