Where r u lookin when landing switch?
Uphill, or downhill? In other words, are you looking where you're going when you land, or are you looking uphill, or down at your skiis, etc?
just let it flow, it varries, pending on how fast you set your spin
I usually look uphill but quickly turn my head to see where im going
Usually at my feet/kinda up hill then instantly turn around to do whatever im going to do next.
Right before I land I look at the landing but then I look uphill so I don't land on my face, then I do a big slow down carve where I see the outrun and depending on what I see I either revert or ski around switch.
im looking down but uphill then i turn my head to see where im going
uphill, or my toes just as i land, then i look over my shoulder and go into "avoid gaper mode"
at my tips or up hill, then look over your shoulder and hit the next feature switch.
it just comes naturally...just do it
i've found it best to look at the landing before your last 90 degree spin then when you land look back up at the knuckle, it helps you stand straight
land looking uphill, then i let it flow
i look kinda my my bindings then back to see where im going
spot the landing then look uphill and turn head after landing to see what little kid your going to take out
I look to the side at the babes and give them the "shooter", then my knees bucket when i hit the tranny to flat part and I wake up 2 minutes later with a smell of burnt toast.
you might want to get that checked out
i look down at the tips of my skis, then quickly over my shoulder in order to avoid tourists and gapers
i dont know for sure....but i am almost positive i am looking back up at the knuckle so i land noses hitting the ground first.
i look up hill and keeep lookin that way for a while, then start carving
Up at the takeoff, as that keeps my body up so I don't flop over like an underinflated hot air baloon.
