Ski Diva Extraordinaire
I have noticed some of my friends do this. The people I ski (or I should say: tag along with) with are very strong skiers, most started as children. I was quite curious at the time why this is working, and I heard back that the skier discovered this as working best.This less common way only works if you also bend forward at the ankle and your belly button forward. So it has three parts to learn. It sure does put the skier in the back seat if those other two aren't working. This is why it is rarely taught.
I am glad to know there are many ways to get the skis to maneouvre, and some may suit me better than some others. It has all become more fun recently, when I am trying various things out. I will report developments for sure. And now - BIG THANKS everybody. This was golden advice. I am glad I asked.
