Ryan wrote:THIS IS NOT AN INTERMEDIATE DRILL!!! You are very right. This is a drill that we do from time to time in an instructor clinic. It is a blast though and fantastic for working on balance. Now if you want to take this one to the next level, take it to steep groomed terrain and do the same progression with jump turns. Let me just say this as a waiver. I am not responsible for anyone hurting themselves when they try to go outside edge to outside in a jump turn.
But you can severely de-tune the drill to make it intermediate friendly. It's funny because as much as this is a drill for experts, intermediates need to work on these skills even more.
Oh, and when I want to take your drill to the next level, I leave my poles at the top of the hill along with one ski!
