And this is wrong? Pressure the ski at the top of the turn, not the bottom.

I didn't say it was wrong.

Can you dig it?


I can dig it.  I bet I'll feel my adductors more than my abductors doing this and the side of my foot more than the side of the bottom.

In my book the guy only says that the exercise is helping us skiers to control our edging thru the turn. And isn't he carving his ski ? so that most mean that hi is skiing some part of the turn good and newschool.

If he is early on edge? pretty early I will say. if the exercise is good? Well he is skiing on snow and do some movement that we do when we ski so it cant be bad for us skiers to learn this, or? if I ski way hmmm.

But still most of the turn is good so what's the problem?

Yes! I have a book from the 50s where the progression is wedge - stem - parallel. I've kind of kept that concept alive and use it frequently in my own skiing. Both for fun and go-to.

You can accomplish the same thing in this video as using "up and overs" or dare I say Phantom moves...... both do the same thing of focusing balance on our sideski while getting the inside ski to lead u into the turn and down the hill.

 

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't a stem turn or this carving stem reincarnation kind of the opposite thing of the PM?
