"Speed is defined as distance over time. If we cover more distance in the same amount of time, we will arrive earlier at the next buoy".

How Great is that put?!! It may only be simple deduction But, stated like that, it is Very Profound!

Way to go Chris!

Re: The Balanced Approach

Bravo Chris.  I always look forward to reading your articles!  They are never the same regurgitated ski babble that gets reprinted year after year, they are always well planned and incredibly thought provoking!  I understand you are a tad handicapped there at SkiTek having that dead weight Wade Williams (Just Kidding WADE!big_smile) slacking around but you guys are indeed running a killer program!  I can't wait to get back to Orlando and come rip!

The balanced approach is the sure way to success this summer! Folks of all levels have been ripping it at SkiTek after their first couple sets!

Re: The Balanced Approach

my preferred method is the "balanced crash" its a carefully planned and well executed way of running 28s and 32s out of control and sometimes skipping across when burying the tip.  If you'd like some pointers let me know - I have years of experience and a wealth of knowledge with this particular technique!
