    Here is the best video we have ever, and possibly will ever make, if you only want to click one, click this one:
    It's a compilation with music of mainly 2 seasons, including this season with groomed skiing which I usually don't include, or put much effort into, in our videos. There's a chance that that won't play in every country in the world due to different copyright laws, so in the next post I'll list our seasonal videos where someone who can't see this one could see all the same shots and more.

    Here is the mogul commentary:
    This one is a commentary showing multiple ways of skiing moguls with demonstrations. It shows the way that I look at mogul skiing and shows how different styles are all related. I say "this is really all just mogul skiing" and at the end I wrote "because of "styles" people are not united". I am trying to show the connectedness of all these things

    Here is the natural skiing commentary:
    This shows the way that I approach all mountain skiing... not necessarily the right way, even if I think it is... just my way. This has a theme of 'no right and wrong, what works for you is what's right for you'... especially towards the end. The PSIA doesn't look the same as the CSIA or the Swiss Ski School, so who is right? Everyone and no one.

    I'm posting these mainly just because of what I said about that copyright thing... the top one is our best, for sure.

    This top ones new and has the groomed shots that went into the music video and more. http://youtu.be/lPwoJM-9bww

    I had to make an adjustment to one of those. If they don't work, they'll work again in 30 minutes.

    Great stuff, Blake, thanks for sharing!

    Sent you a PM regarding this on Epic.

    Will post more later here, but I wanted to say how excellent the whole presentation is, how clever the pedagogical rhetoric is (especially in the forward to backward mogul video-really slick way to make a great point).

    AND…does anyone else notice how much 9 sounds like Rick in his narration (must be a Colorado stylistic thing!).

    I am on epic under the name 'Ronin' right now if anyone wants to know. It will be my last thread there.

    I also thought he sounded similar to Rick, not so much the voice but the delivery.

    9,

    In the mogul video, are you on the same skis for all styles?

    I do ski changes about like Cher does costume changes.

    There is a ski change between shot 1 and shot 2. There is also a third ski that is in the shot at 3:00 (that shot appears multiple times)... and that same ski is also in the one after that starting at 3:08. In that same reverse sequence, all of the shots after 'Shot 1' (3:35) are on mogul skis.

    Mostly what you see is a slalom race ski and mogul skis. I cannot ski moguls at my best on anything but a mogul ski. I don't believe that anyone else can either. Don't listen to the guys in the shop that will show you a huge rockered ski and say "this is good in the moguls". If (or should I say 'when') you hear that, here is how I would translate that: "This 100mm rockered ski is great in the moguls because it helps you slarve into each bump" translation= "I have no clue about skiing moguls and you probably shouldn't trust my opinion as a salemen about that or anything else". Mogul skis really should be more popular that they are. There is no other way to do it unless you want to purposely put MAJOR limits on what you're capable of in the bumps.
