    AVALEMENT. We tried to teach it…

  2. After Jean Claude K took all 3 golds, he made a movie where he had to ski a glacier in some robbery get-away scene. The technique used by Jean Claude in this daring descent was avalement, and it was shown in super slow motion. It was the most remarkable use of this technique, as he used reverse gravity to make his turns. This was the best example of linked avalement turns I’ve seen so far.
