how to develop good slalom fundamentals and technique?

The subject says it all.  I am looking to improve my slalom skiing and am looking for any tips or resources out there.  I am currently NOT skiing the course, but that is my goal to eventually ski the slalom course.  So what is the best and quickest path to solid fundamentals.

Thanks, Joel

If you could post a video or pictures, or both! It would help us out a lot to specifically help you. Otherwise we will just be throwing advice out in the dark.

Re: how to develop good slalom fundamentals and technique?

The quickest and best path is to get lessons from a pro.  Also, get yourself some slalom dvd's to watch over the winter and study what the pros are doing.  Good ones to watch are Shortline, Edged in Water, and Slalom with Andy Mapple.  If nothing else, the videos will get you stoked for spring!

Slalom with Andy Mapple has some great instruction and guidance. Edged in Water 1 and 2 are both great for getting through the long snowy season lol. Also show great angles to study what the pros are doing. And they have pretty good crash segments haha.
