Why StraightRunning?
To quote from Robin Fedden...
"With the first natural movement down a slope comes the real introduction to ski-ing. It is of the essence of good ski-ing to take as straight a line as possible. All turns are a compromise dictated by the steepness of the slope and human fallibility. To be able to run straight and fast is the heart of the matter."
So no turning or carving then. Nail on 8ft planks and go for it!
