In the cold light of my headlamp I examined the scrap 8-) - just to discover the lever to switch the binding into downhill mode :lol:

Re: Moguls

I keep my ears & eyes open particularly for this topic.
Haven't found the right balance of carve and pivot... among other things.

How do I turn my skis without my heel locked down?
You don't.
Heels locked down, skier turns ski.
Heels liberated, ski turns skier...
......into yard sale
......towards patchouli and hemp
......against 'the man'
......into developing mighty strong thighs

Re: Ski&Pulk adventures in Slovakia.

The photographer has a keen eye... good balance of land & heavens. The landscape looks surreal, as if from my imagination. Well done on the photos and the walkabout. Thanks for sharing, and welcome.
