If you had a chance to talk with a Hall of Fame pro slalom skier - what would you ask them?

Dusty's Mom doesn't like questions. She just gets down to business.

I would also probably ask, what is one tip they received that they have benefited the most from.

The one piece of advice I received from a pro I still remember. He said to me you need to stop pulling and start leaning. That one thing paid dividends....

Had a chance to ski with Wade Cox this weekend. Wade is all about relaxing and keeping your hands and kness/feet 'loose'. Must work - ran a personal best this weekend.

How about "what the hell am I doing wrong?"

This would be for building up consistency and regaining confidence in the W2W department.

Oh wait- skiing? Uh,......

Ya, off-side pull. The one key!? ...Anything!?
I can get to 2 ball in time for a cigar, but I've got nothing for 3, 5.
How to contort the torso and get it done?

Having just gone to The Calgary Waterski Pro Shootout, i had the chance to talk too a few Pros and or Canadian National team skiers.

My conversations varied from everything from the weather to how do you like the City and or waterski site etc.
i ran into (my Hero) and was blown away that after meeting him and skiing with him 2 summers ago in Florida, that after removing My sunglasses he was able to say my first name /without hesitation. We shook hands ,i wished him well and let him go about his business...
Going back to the topic,of this thread, i didn't really have a specific question other than to the skiers.... HOW the Hell do you do that and to the Jumpers??? Are you guys all #$% Nuts??? Lol.

We had awesome views, and total access to the PROS and was just purely blown away by how GOOD most of them are.NATE SMITH won the mens slalom ,and is gonna be a force to recon with for many years to come.. The GUYS only 20 years old... WOW.

BTW, forgot to mention ... MY HERO is CHRIS PARRISH ,current world record holder Slalom skiing.. Maybe not for long though???

For sure - Nate is the next super skier

So regret not driving down for the Pro shoot-out.
Wing men (ski buddies) couldn't go, so stayed back as well.
Hopefully it was well attended? (Thus returning next year perhaps).

Was reasonably well attended. Would have done much better having the event on Saturday not friday and a little more advertising would have helped. Hopefully an anual event. I would definetely go back.
