I know, and totally agree with you, but I also think that I don't have the appropriate skill to do it comfortable which is part of my issue, maybe. I'm trying to find the balance between heel to toe without carving the mountain in half. It looks so effortless on everyone else, but I feel that maybe I swing too hard with my hips...or whatever I'm doing wrong.
