Summer’s Over! DEPRESSED? Don’t be Winter’s coming.

September 11, 2010

Some great action shots from the slopes over the last couple of years. For those who know me (Glyn that is) you’ll recognise my distinctive skiing style as I try to go around the gates. Yes, I had this wild idea I might be able to pass the French Test Technique so I opened my wallet (not easy for me) and coughed up some dosh to do some Slalom training with BASS Morzine. Even bought myself a pair of new super-duper very stiff and very fast, short Slalom skis. I think the first run I fell off them very hard. I should probably have taken the hint. Yes, you’ve guessed it – it remains a wild idea!!

Great experience though and marvelous training with BASS. These boys really know what they’re doing!! I can assure you if you want to improve your anticipation, balance and timing then spend a morning or two going around the gates. It’s amazing what it can do for your skiing.

You’ll also find some great shots of Skiing in the POWDER below as well, not to mention the BUMPS. Including some shots of the EXPERTS – BASS fully ISTD qualified instructors in action. Especially, look at the difference in their body angulation to mine as they go around the gates, glide through the powder or attack the bumps………..

All photographs courtesy of BASS Morzine. I’ve known them and ski’d with them for years – They’re top professionals and absolutely brilliant!! Please check out the link to their website in the side panel (Under Pages) on this BLOG.
