Default My first set of Parabolics - Adjusting Technique??

Hey Yall,

I just bought my first set of Parabolic skis = Monster IM70s with
railflex bindings.

This is my first set of parabolics, after skiing on antique straight
cuts for years.

How should I adjust my technique?

Thanks

Fred

Just relax, and in the first couple of turns you'll realise you don't have
to do more than think about a turn and you're there.
Enjoy!
(How come you held out for so long?)

I held out so long because I am a cheap ******* lol! and I always
enjoyed skiing with straight cuts.

Still having not tried my parabolics, I am wondering if they really are
that much better than the old style skis? I have no complaints with
"normal" style skis.

I will soon know the answer!

Yah. The biggest adjustment is in learning not to "over-ski" them.


He's right! that's exactly what I meant.

Anyway, I hate you because its high summer here and we have wildfires on the
ski slopes instead of snow.

Sorry to hear that. That could be why a lot of your countrymen are here
this time of year. I can't go anywhere on the mountain w/o hearing an Aussi
or Kiwi accent. The Boxing Kangaroo is flying proudly in the flag circle
around the bronze Mammoth.
