Ski log from my first day in a mono to nowClick Here
The 2005-2006 season is here. I will do my best to keep up with this log but each year
It seems time gets away from me. My season started off with a free ski days at Hunter on 11-25. Over the summer I completely rebuilt my RPC sitski. New shock, rod ends and nice new powder coat. I was a little stiff and a little taller. I felt out of sorts.
Plus it was day one and I am out of shape. The next day I was at Windham for instructor training. We had a great ATS clinic. Cold, snow guns blasting, typical early season ski conditions. I was feeling a little better but still out of sorts and could not put my finger on it. But all in all it was good.
More on snow training at Windham, I brought my girls up for some early season Skiing. I was doing a mono-ski clinic and still feeling out of sorts. One of the instructors (Dee Dee) commented that my riggers looked too short. I know my riggers did not change but I could have set up my suspension a little higher after the rebuild. We changed the rigger length and I felt like I never left the bucket. When you feel you are reaching too far or working too hard try making your outriggers longer. It is such a simple adjustment with drastic results. The right rigger length can make or break your skiing.
