1. he is balanced on his inside skis tail
2.he is twisting on everyturn
3. he is not moving his COM down the hill
4. his pole plant is an arm swing that is adding unneed rotary to his and the timing is off
and this all from watching a POV.
Really those skis are going to suck for you unless you get better. Your a level 5 that has used a bunch of dead movements for years. Practice makes permanent.
to be a little less critical, trying to ski with your head lookin down at your skis, so you can film, is a hard proposition for anyone - I wouldn;t enjoy that... and doesn't make for the best technique
it is an easy slope, so being dynamic actually takes some effort.
I am seeing a lot of shuffling, and that means he can't get his weight distribution proper between downhill and uphill ski. Forget finding the sweetspot. You can see that with the straightleg on the downhill ski. Not goona get into ski technique here, but there's no way to properly regulate weighting and pressure when one leg is almost locked and the other is shuffled forward. Which means both skis are gonna skate around on their own. Always been the 'Berlin Wall' for skiers trying to ski some length, with skis built to work under some energy. Shuffling is extremely hard habit to rectify, but worth working on.
A Pivot turn still requires weighting & COM control, and eventually, edge and weighting control.
All this best left to the instructor types...
but yeah, the twisting and pole work also eventually will need to work into getting it all sortted
that would a good hill to work on getting that handled. A good DI, and run after run with drills would turn the trick...
