I've been working on my skiing quite a bit this year, and I've been using video to self-evaluate along the way. One thing I've noticed is that there is often a significant difference in what it feels like I'm doing, and what I'm actually doing. One of the sensations that stands out to me is the feeling of really getting low in a turn. Think of Ted Ligety skiing GS. So when I realized that despite feeling like my butt was about to scrape the ground, I was nowhere near it, I started to play around with getting lower and what it really takes to get that low.
I found that really focusing on shortening the inside leg helped, but even then I wasn't getting all that low. While focusing on shortening, I would typically go until I felt my thigh contact my belly. So I'm wondering what is the key to getting that low. Is it turn radius? Is it based on speed? What is the recipe for a turn that will essentially let you drag your butt?
