Yeah, I was wondering what the heck you were talking about.  



As for her teacher, yes I tip him well.  Sonya has had the same one for 3 seasons now.  She tells me, that lately, while he has other kids practicing making turns on a slope, he has her and another girl in the class running a hard line or taking some jump.  I guess he is trying to get her to be a bit more adventurous. He has told  Sonya and the other girl that they have great form, as has another teacher who was a substitute for one day.  That adventurous attitude really grew this week.  The final tr's will come in the next day or two. Travelling home tomorrow, so I may write it then.

Sorry correction, Sonja is counter rotating.  Most people turn by twisting their body so their butt is facing down the hill.  By keeping your butt facing up the hill, you can get separation of the upper and lower body.

Looking at the facebook photos I like that Sonya is not counter rotating.  Hence the "angulation". I hope you have been tipping her instructors well.  Counter rotating is very common.  It is tough to get people to stop counter rotating.   Aggressiveness will come with strength.   I always thought the kids that were hesitant to launch, did so because of intelligence.

Pehaps skiing = better with multiple plums and a few nectarines? As opposed to just aplomb?

What is the criteria for being a better skier than you?

- faster
- smoother
- skins quicker
- bigger air
