The other thing pulling back the inside ski does is it flexes the knee and allows massive tipping at the top of the turn - so if you like the big angles, you need that. Also, as a racer, there is some torque developing between the skis, if you use the hips properly, which helps turn faster... there his a bunch of stuff.
To be honest, not a lot of coaches understand the relationship. When you show them, it's like "duh, obviously" but before you show them, none of them would emphasize it as needed.
Flex the knees slightly
push the left foot forward one boot length
Try to tip your feet to the left
You can't really!
Now pull that left foot back so it's even with the right
Now try to tip again...
It works, yeah?
So if you want to ski closer to Teddy maybe heed this advice :)
