  • 15 Off Club (ha) Basic comments please for novices!

    I too have struggle for years, but am more consistent this year. I skied well in May and been up and down all summer. This is the first and only video I have this year. I thought I had a better stacked body position. I see that I have a long way to go and can only imagine what I could do if I got my hips up and shoulders farther back.

    First time trying youtube, so I hope it works.

    Decided to start a threat instead of a club, less dues. There use to be a guy that had a 15 off website, but I think he graduated.

    Start with easiest thing. Watch your stance before the gate. Where is your weight and how is your stance. Starts there.

    Then try to avoid pulling in on the handle. Those will instantly help

      We're both going to be stuck at 15 off if we don't get our hips up!
      - I'd rather be SWERVING!

          LMAO.

          OP - i can't even ski 15 off at 28mph.

          I think you are on the right path.

            I have to admit, I didn't watch the video.

            I will share this tidbit that has made a difference for me. Don't be in a hurry to load the line after the turn, let the ski finish and get a good angle.

            For me, when I am struggling, I get anxious as I finish the turn, load the line early, and accelerate myself down the course and not across the course......

              I like this... Thank you.

                Pulling my arms in, why? More important how to prevent?

                I feel like I'm pulling my arms in to avoid slack in the rope and keep some tension on it.
                So how I fix it?
