Seems like lots of people come on and say stuff like how slalom skis won't skid. For a properly tuned ski that's untrue. Some, say cgeib, ski with barely any base bevel and can do pivot slips all day
Anything 1/2 or under base bevel requires attention and care, but they still skid.

Thumbs Up

 

Exactly!  We did side slips and pivots all day on 0 base bevel straight skis ( Which really were not straight either, just comparatively so)

I going to guess it's core strength vs arm strength developed by lifting the arm to drink unspecified beverages during hot summer days.
