Yes, I've been looking very close at those vibrations in her lower leg.  It looks like her shin is bending/lengthening/shortening, which of course it isn't.  Pretty weird to see.

 

I think what's happening is she is flexing the boot cuff.  The boot tongue's top edge then slides upward along her shin, moving the Atomic band upwards into the other stuff on her leg, creating the illusion that her lower leg is compressing and changing shape.

Did you notice the bend at the waist throughout, driving forward leading with her head.

Not at first, but thanks for pointing that out.  I was at first just admiring how each turn was finished/started in perfect balance.

Yow..that's my kind of skiing.

Keeping the COM forward by bending at the waist during peak load may not be PSIA but is critical for racing carved turns.

That stand up and look around PSIA vertical upper body doesn't  work at 100% throttle.

It's skin and muscle flapping on the skeleton? Yuck.

No, it's velcro and nylon moving over spandex.
