Hey guys - I'm a volunteer ski coach - helping with house league. Raced alot, but no coaching levels -
I saw an instructor (not race coach) plus some other photos (mostly adverts in ski mags) of skiers making hard carves with the outside knee bent medially into touch the inside boot - maybe you've seen this. The outside leg is making a < at the knee to touch in.
I'm assuming this is for some extra edge angle - but it's different than I was taught. Has something changed - I assume when I look at this that adjusting the angle of leg medially to the inside would break down the amount of power you could add to the edge of the ski. Doesn't this break down the innate mechanics of the lag - Shouldn't the bones be stacked athletically for power and control?
Is this just for aesthetics? Thanks!
