Slalom Course Inspection
Skier's inspecting a race course prior to racing through this slalom run in Val d'Isere.
Each Skier is soaking up every snippet of feedback they possibly can, the snow conditions, the undulations, the route, storing it mentally to perform on autopilot later. Programming the subconscious.
If you ever get the chance to stop by and watch a ski race, do so, you'll learn a lot.
