I am a good skier, did some racing, and I would like to perfect a skidded turn, from the very beginning of a turn. I can start with my skis on edge, carving from the top of the turn, and once I pass thru the fall line, I can start skidding, it the tails following a larger radius turn than my tips.
But i see skiers that are able to very smoothly start skidding slightly from the very top of the turn.
When i try that, it seems that my tips are catching.
I took a few lessons recently, but it seems that the focus is still on carving the turn.
I believe one term I heard used is S-turns.
