    How important is drilling?

    So important, that the best female slalom racer in the world was blowing off races as a kid so she could stay at home and work on developing her skills via drill work, while here counterparts we're off on the road, chasing points and hardware. How'd that work for her? Pretty well I'd say.

    Great stuff, the other videos on that YouTube page are fantastic too. Just made this summer.
    I need to be a conqueror, a liberator of my potential, kept prisoner all these years.

    Me too. They are a different kind of challenge. I don't do them often enough preferring to have the right conditions for success than the wrong ones for frustration but when we are at Breckenridge in January I hope to concentrate on them.

    My coworkers don't like skiing with me because I am always working on something. Hey, that's how I get my jollies on the snow.

    Ok MtG - there is a job for you in the Village - you need Drillers Anonymous! We can have weekly meetings and a 12 drill program
