That is the correct way yes. As we see from the two examples in the opening posting we need to be able to maintain that outside ski pressure all the way through the belly of the turn. Im not sayin that you cannot achieve good form by using a wider stance width. Here is an example:

let take one shot from a SL race were the guy was low on gate so he use an uphill step to get around the gate.

 

What you are showing is the exception and not even close to the rule. Its also in the race course where alot of stuff you will do happen because you need to make it around those gates "to finish first, first you must finish".

Bush, that is just an example that you dont have to have a narrow stance at the transition. Also, your assumption that the skier took one step up is falce. Its a perfectly normal situation where the outside leg is flexed in OLF manner.
