Thanks for the reply again, Gigatoh--and I think we're in full agreement in principle, along with Bud. Forward leverage--and aft leverage--are situational techniques for creating specific ski performance outcomes, and you've described the outcome of forward leverage well. And when those situations where forward leverage might be useful arise, it is almost always in the top half of the turn.
I contend that those situational exceptions when forward leverage is the "right" move are much rarer than many skiers believe. As Bud says, we should not consider forward leverage our "go to" technique, but rather should think of the very dynamic effort to keep the pressure centered on the sweet spot as the default. Keep leverage open as an option. Use it judiciously when necessary. I see an awful lot of racer-types plastered right up against the fronts of their boots, causing them to become very static, as their tails twist out in the tops of their turns (and usually wash out in the bottoms as well, due to the upper body rotation that almost invariably accompanies forward leverage). You'll note that there's very little forward leverage in any part of the turns in my "Transitions" video clip linked to above.
Good reply, Gigatoh!
Yeah, leveraging to me is the 'final' physical skill in skiing and still I rarely ever use it. Like you said, it hardly is ever called for and secondly, it really isn't that easy to perform correctly.
I sometimes think that too many have read Ron le Master, misinterpret his writings and try to use the ski to ski when they should be using their legs to ski. There's usually a lot of other stuff they could/ should be working on instead. But it's still cool to talk about it :)
