I heard many times that you are supposed to feel if you are skiing in the back seat by the pressure on the bottom of the feet (pressure on the heel- you're back).
I never consciously paid attention to that, if I think about it, of course I can feel where the pressure is, but my clue is normally pressure on my calf where it touches the back of the boot. Is this too late, and can i feel the pressure distribution on my soles earlier?
I can ski powder well balanced (I think) and pretty forward, certainly not turning the skis from the tails, until i hit a patch of ice, then I realize I am somewhat back seat, but it's kind of late.
I wonder if I paid more attention to the pressure on my soles, if I could realize I'm slightly back, then correct it so when I hit the patch if ice I am perfectly balanced.
If I ski something consistently ice, I can tell when I am not balanced and correct it pretty quickly.
I am looking for the quickest way to realize my balance is to the rear of the ski.
