well - it wasn't quite that kind of "but"... i still need to work on tipping and you can't if the legs are long in transition - got to get that one sorted as well - it was that kind of "but"...
ok - I may be slowly capitulating - i wasn't going to do something radically different anyhow, it i guess sounded that way since i started saying it will be different :) i wanted to really explore some more options.
i honestly expected someone to recognize what i was after and say "oh, yeah, you do so and so to develop that". but i see all there is is just moguls, park, jumps, stuff like that - when i said brushes and stubbies i wasn't thinking strait gates, but some environments. i will put together some dryland program to develop quickness and balance now instead and get back to working technique once on snow, then.
@LiquidFeet long leg short leg at apex, then the outside leg shortens so both legs should be short in transition, then the new outside leg extends, keeping contact with snow, that's the correct sequence. If the hip comes up excessively in transition, then both legs are long already and you can't tip them anymore
these are my two photos that i use for those:
oh - here's what i just found:
thank you all for being persistent in bashing me over the head.
