Taking a look at making a fundamental change in stance. I am open to going back to the drawing board and starting all over again. This shot is about as close to ski-neutral as practical I think. I am not predisposed to be overly concerned that the hips are slightly back but, more looking at the upper back and pelvis. It was suggested that tilting the pelvis more vertical and rounding out the back while extending the arms more would be good.
Unfortunately this discussion occurred in the last 15 minutes of our Divisional Academy so I only had a few runs with the GF before the lifts closed to play with it. Overall I feel that rotary movements in the femur were enhanced and off-piste skiing seemed easier despite the ubiquitous awkwardness that accompanies any change. I did feel some difficulty working foot to foot balance and shaping the turn in a more dynamic carved turn. I also noted that the femurs were more vertical when I stood statically.
One thing that is interesting to me is that typically I have felt uncomfortable on a Tyrolia type binder (5-9mm delta) but, this is the first day on these skis and I felt very balanced over the arch standing on them and at times, over the weekend, skied with what I felt internally was a lot of power for me.
I tend to think this might be a good idea but, hope to enrich the change with some feedback from trusted members of the board.
