Would anyone care to try to describe all the motions/timings/etc that come
together to make a truly efficient V1 climbing technique?
I guess what I would like to know is how much of the total drive up the hill should
come from the skate step vs. the poling action? I feel as though I just sort of
fall from the glide ski onto the power ski without much of a push-off.
Unfortunately, this also seems to require 80-90% of the power to come from the pole
Should I be trying to get more power out of the weight/ski transfer?
Should I drive through from the heel, the toe, or from a flat foot?
How does one do this and still get the timing right (ski/poles hit snow/pavement at
