Tilting hips

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I notice all good skiers tilting their hips yet never read anything about it. Has anyone seen photo of Mikaela Shiffrin page 43 of spring 2015 Ski magazine? Rogan addresses key points in photo but nothing about hip position. I know long leg short leg will tip your hip but you can also have long leg short leg with level (horizontal) hip.

You're going to have to be a lot more specific in this regard. Tilting the hips how? In what direction? Tilted relative to what? Maybe a photo demonstrating what you mean by 'tilting'.

Hi John does tilting in the frontal plane help? World Cup skiers look almost like the tilt of their hip is parallel to the tilt of their ski.

I think you ought to be tilting your hips into the frontal plane by the third date or you'll be back in the singles line before you know it.

You mean like this picture below?  (Paul Lorenz)  If so, you're looking at what's called "inclination."

You'll find a very technical analysis from the same guy about this very issue here:
