Fore and aft foot pressure during a turn...
I've read something about this, but I can't seem to find it. Maybe on here, maybe in a book.
I'll try to explain.
When I skied last, I wast trying to make arcing turns. I wasn't trying to carve, if that makes sense. I was merely trying to make my turns have that textbook look. In actuality, my outside ski was probably close to carve. I almost always try to face downhill as well and obtain as much separation as I can muster. Separation is something I always practice. I was also trying to edge early with the outside ski.
What I found on one run was a pretty cool feeling. Early in the turn, I felt forward pressure inside my boot (near my toes) and then by the end... somewhere near transition I had aft pressure (near my heel). I could repeat it from side to side. I had to get on a pretty good pitch for it to work and had to find a steady rhythm.
It seems to me that I remember reading something about this, but I can't find it.
During your skiing, does your foot pressure change with the stage of the turn? Does this have any practical use? Never heard an instructor mention it to me...
