Here you go, TreeFiter.
Left turns have some angulation; the inside (left)
shoulder and arm/hand are lifted. Here are two left turns:
But right turns are banked, no angulation,
with inside (right) shoulder and arm dipping down.
Here are two right turns.
Angulation requires counter. Here's an initiation of a left turn
with some counter to allow that angulation. Notice how your
upper body is facing more down the hill than your skis?
This is the left-over counter from your previous turn.
You've held onto it for the initiation. That's good.
...and here are three right turn initiations. There's no counter
held onto from the previous turn. Notice how your
upper body is square to the skis? You have let go of any
left-over counter you had in the previous turn and squared yourself
up to your skis. Not good.
Below you are planting that right pole. Again, your upper body appears
to be square to the skis.
Here's another one. (These are a little hard to capture on your video.) It
appears again that you have squared up your hips/shoulders/torso to the
skis as you plant that right pole for the right turn coming up. Again, not good.
So there are two things going on related to that "lazy" right hand. One is
the initiation of your right turns. For your right turns, you square up your
hips/shoulders/torso to the skis for the initiation, losing the counter from
the previous left turn. Not good. This relates to the next issue.
Second, you bank the top of your right turns. By the end of the right turn
you have built up some counter. Then you initiate your left turns with that
counter intact. That's good, but the earlier banking is not. When you are
banking is when you notice your right hand is low and back.
To fix, I'd suggest holding onto your old counter when you start your right
turns, then lift that right shoulder and right hip to get some angulation going
on once that turn starts. You can try shifting forward the shoulder and hip
as you lift them, too. You'll know you are doing it because you can see your
right hand out in front, and you'll feel yourself moving your right hip up and forward.
