my nickname was "Guinea Pig" when I was on the bumps and jumps team during my teenage years. I have balls , but there is something about turning to 1 ball that has me all out of whack. I had a headache for a day after my last outing due to the 5, yes 5, OTFs on the turn through the starting gates. So that is what makes me a little timid about making that turn, because 30% of my slalom passes I eat $hit hard before I even get to make a turn around the buoys.

Thanks to you guys I've got some good tips here to work on for my turn in my next outing.

Thats why I inquired about set up. It is difficult to eat it out the front.

Not sure what that means.

When I crash while alpine skiing it is usually messy, unless I just lose the edge and slide out. I have to keep my DIN settings at 12 minimum or else my skis will regularly come off, not just during a fall but also while big mountain skiing.

Where do you find a lake with a hill in it in Texas?
