Well, the term will vary widely depending on context. It doesn't mean "steep skiing", for after all, a fall line exists on even the most gentle novice slope. Also, the fall line is not always straight down the hill -- especially on older trails, the fall line sometimes cuts on a diagonal to the hill, and IMHO presents the most interesting runs. <BR> <BR>Think of the fall line as the route a ball would take if you released it on the top of the trail, or wherever you're standing. The upper body should always be facing squarely down the fall line. And yes, watch any accomplished mogul skier -- their upper body is quiet, while facing squarely down the fall line. <BR> <BR>You can tell that the season is fast appropaching, or for some limited folks near Loveland or (soon to be) Killington, it's already here, for traffic in these forums is starting up again. Let the snow fly!
