Vicki you were doing just fine...it was a scarving day...you could hear the ice on the vid. There were some folks in the vid that blew past and quickly disappeared....they were closer to carving. But you are not yet comfortable with going that fast...so you scarve...nothing wrong with that...you were clearly in control. You appeared abit uneasy thus rushed the turns and kicked out the rear foot a bit.

Ime perfect carves are hard to come by because you need perfect slope/terrain that is matched for your skill level, that is smooth, with great snow, good visability and nobody in the way; this past Saturday, 2 skier buds and I had three laps late in the day where this occured...the best carving laps so far this year.
