for the record here is what I wrote SE.
Actually, TPJ's very much on the right track about smudging turns. One notable exception being when skiing ice though. He's also echoing something Barnes has suggested for years. If the skier hangs onto an edge too long, the next turn is affected. The solution is to do pivot slips on very shallow terrain. The progressive release it teaches is very much the same as what we need when linking turns. Fear of tripping over the little toe edge and going "over the handlebars" keeps these folks comfortably inside the current turn but the cost is the core is too far inside when it should be migrating over the feet and eventually inside the new turn. This in turn upsets the timing of where they can effectively engage the new edges. Said simply, the edge release and re-engagement of the new edges get lumped into one event when they are separate events. One common work around is a stivot entry, another is to quickly thrust the core into the new turn, and a third is an upward thrusting of the core. All three present challenges on steeper terrain though. Excessive pivoting makes edge purchase more difficult (necessitates the strong edge check at the end of the turn), thrusting the core around and doing so accurately is difficult even at a true expert level, and upward releases eliminate the possibility of engaging the new edges until the skis have more pressure.
Progressive releases and the smooth flowing quality they produce thus become one of the major differences in ability levels. Take a TA, or an examiner to the steeps and this willingness to flow like water is clearly obvious. Take a level 3 and below there and it's likely you won't see that same level of smooth flow.
I stand by everything I wrote in this post. Seems you are putting words into my post about absolutes and then missing the comparison between a 3 and a 3E. Should a 3 find it offensive that I said they likely won't show the same level of flow as an examiner? I seriously doubt anyone would find that offensive. Except you of course. Why is beyond me but the rest of post twenty described some activities and "how to's" just like LF was asking about. So far I haven't seen anything like that from you. Just a whole lot of criticism of me based on some imaginary comments I never made.
As far as your post, it contained three almosts when you described what that certification means. Maybe it's you who doesn't fully understand how low on the totem pole 3 is. It's not world class like the folks you mentioned, nor does anyone represent it as such. That doesn't mean it isn't important, it is within the context of a teaching pro. It means they have exhibited a level of accuracy and understanding that meets the standards as set by the ed staff for that division.
Hopefully we can move on here and get back to LF's topic SE.
