One of the things that the Italian ski technique being taught in schools, (insist upon) is the so called "avanti-interno" movement ("forward-inside").
And they still teach a (very) small degree of uphill shoulder/torso/hip/leg advancement and a (very) small amount of up-move.
Not that the up-move is huge, and to say the truth is not as an active one as in the past...
white pass? not so sure what this drill is? i practiced for 2 solid days(i'm a bit of an obsessive and dont stop till i have it right even if its boring me) on bringing my inside ski back to feel the pressure against the tongue of the boot, doing this in its self helped me keep my knees apart and pressure the inside ski more, i could create such tighter arcs and felt so much more in control,
learnt so much in the last week and also from reading info on here,
