I was just watching some old video of Hermann Maier and the commentator (Karen Lee Gartiner) mentioned that he had successfully improved his gliding skills between seasons. Beyond a slippery tuck and trying to keep your skis flat and swimming what elements make comprise good gliding skills. Equal weight distribution left and right? Neutral stance or weight back or forward? Wider than normal or usual stance? More suspension travel in the legs or a low tuck? What kind of things are useful to practice to improve gliding efficiency? I'm the just about the only one in my club interested in racing DH so I have to do it alone.
