I thought I had posted his other videos somewhere, but I can’t find them, so here they are again:

Here’s a new one from Warren about transitions

 

Saw that new one yesterday. Nice ski suit!

Another excellent vid on ski technique.

It's stuff I'll be working on next time on snow. Due to over-developed self-preservation have a tendency to angulate too early which was blocking further moving inside. To work around that I using both leg flex to release this past season - stay low and the extension is then lateral. That certainly helped. However still feel the need to loop back and solve the basic issue.

I thought this was a pretty interesting analysis:

@skinerd yes really interesting. I wonder if Warren's leg position that was highlighted has been impacted by his awful injury. It would be interesting to look at him before the injury. I don't know if it was even his right leg that was injured but while I haven't watched the analysis back a second time, I thought it was slightly different in his left leg turn.

I watched the video a couple of times a few days ago and was more drawn to similarities than these differences. That's the skill and eye of you top analysts.

Two great skiers. I would give anything to ski like either of them but personally I prefer the smoothness and precision of Warren's skiing on an aesthetic level.

@adrian_hamilton Yeah interesting thought. I’m not sure which leg he injured, and it’s a bit hard to tell as the video never shows a straight on shot of both turns... but I thought he looks pretty symmetrical considering.

Yes, Warren's stuff has been very good.

Here's some of his skiing from a few years back (2015).

 

Be interesting to do a comparison between now and then. There's a great deal that is common (to my eye). That extension perpendicular to the pitch, inclining (toppling) at the top of the turn before increasing angulation into an through the fall line for example.

 

What else is similar? What differences?

@geepers

to my eye, he seems to keep a slightly better connection with the outside ski at the top of the arc in those newer videos compared to that one from 2015, where you can see it want to stray on a couple of those turns. From a movement perspective, he appears to exaggerate the hip extension a little more as he releases a turn which I suppose causes his mass to shortcut across. 

In the newer videos he keeps a little more flex in those hips through the transition and he’s locked onto the outside ski right away.

Mind you the snow looks a lot softer in that 2015 vid.

@skinerd - well spotted.

He does have quite a straight upright stance in the earlier vid.

Seems to me the difference is more pronounced as the turn performance picks up - steered to pure carve.

Absolutely... and the 2015 vid looks like a pretty casual coaches run to go film some athletes, whereas the newer videos he looks to be skiing with a little more intention.

I seem to recall around the time of the first video there was a video around called something like 'Building the turn.' I can't find it at the moment. As I remember it was quite a contrived looking turn with an extended hip as we see from Warren there.

It was meant to be a stage in the development of more advanced turning, though I'm a bit vague about it. Skinerd will likely recall it better, but I wonder if this has something to do with that.

I never saw or heard any follow up and I have to say it didn't really resonate with or inspire me very much and seemed to lack the dynamic flow I associate with our system.
