its a picture, skiing is dynamic. Dynamics require movements. You got video?

Weight to the inside, banking, outside arm high and behind, left ski not bent, diverging tips. I'm with Josh, a video would show your momentum would realign your body more to the outside with pressured and carving left ski hooking up for a clean powerful turn close to the gate...just a 10th second after this still "shot" was taken. cool.gif

Good stuff from one pic.  Def see the divergence.

 

No vid from Sunday but this is from a couple years ago.

Phew, I'm no racer but I saw that.

 

I've been looking at high speed sequence photography of racers in LeMaster's book lately.  You should hook up with a decent photographer and get some sequences.

I don't think your outside arm is inappropriately high or back. I don't like that much diverge.

I used to ski with a bunch of Austrians. Their outside hand frequently went over their head as they rustled the flags by hitting the bamboo with the middle of their back. That much counter puts the outside hand behind the vastly strong inside half.

I see a sturdy young man who almost could break into a smile. Have fun!!!

video from a couple years ago doesnt matter. My advice on that video can be nulled.
