Here you go. You may be able to see what they are talking about.
Before looking, recognize that you are skiing well. Great round turns,
good edge purchase and slicing action, strong angulation, all very good things.
You'll be skiing very well once the issue below gets addressed.
Your outside foot needs to be behind your hips, not downhill of all of you.
The distance your hip is from the snow is not necessary for these current
turns. It's cool to see, but makes you aft and therefore unstable, and weakens
your transitions with an unnecessary up move. Those angles will look great to
some people, but not the experts who may contribute to this thread.
1. Big angles, but hips are aft (uphill) of feet. Not good. Solution: keep the low
hip but limit its presence to the moment when your skis are pointing down the hill.
Start losing that low hip as you turn across the hill out of the fall line (i.e., release).
Right now you are lowering the hip even more as you come around. That's not good,
and it's the cause of your aftness.
2. Aft at transition as hips are brought up; can't get forward. Getting forward
takes time and you'll be well into the next turn and out of time before you get
in front of your feet. Your hips get low at the wrong time in your turns.
3. Wobbly finish because of the imbalance of being aft. Nothing good will
come of those hands being there.
4. What happens after that wobbly finish; you know that lifted ski
is a sure sign of being aft and inside. You see it in intermediate skiers
all the time, but you are not an intermediate skier. This whole issue
is a result of hanging onto the low hip way past when it's appropriate.
Release earlier and stay in front of your hips, and your turns will get
much stronger and stable. You'll be riding the force of gravity
with greater power, and you'll feel it.
