I have had little professional skiing instruction but have been reading quite a bit on this forum and have purchased some books during the past couple years. One of the things I have read about is putting pressure on the big toe. This frankly seemed a little silly to me considering my feet are encased by stiff boots. But I tried it a couple days ago on a firm groomer day.
I was truly amazed at the difference it made! I was skiing on Dynastar Sultan 85s and, on the firmer stuff, if I did not pressure my big toe at the beginning and through the middle of the turn I would often get chatter from the edge not quite being able to hold on. However, if I pushed down on my big toe the turn was always smooth with no chatter. I was in much better control and having a much smoother ride. I could not believe what a difference it made. So, thanks to all of you who have made comments about pressuring the big toe.
