The Swede's technique bothers me. It looks awkward, almost like an intermediate. But that's why they have this congress. To examine the different techniques around the world of skiing.
I know there are strong skiers there. Maybe their nat'l association just isn't that big a thing there (?).

Yeah the Swedes were confusingly bad, they have so many strong freeriders and racers, not sure how that was the best their instructors could come up with.

Cool videos, though doing long turns in (too) soft snow on SL skis didn't really show much, mens short turns were fun to watch with some great skiing (especially Japan, Aus, NZ and GB). I love the Swiss loose style in longs, but don't really think it's ideal for short turns.
