You can't lift it until you have established a platform on the old inside ski. Just as he says inn the video!
NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES WE SHOW AND TELL YA.........
YOU AND YOUR CONSORTIUM HAVE GIVEN UP ON LEADING THE TURN WITH THE NEW INSIDE SKI!
Leading with the inside ski means lightening it, tipping it and pulling it back. Different DIRT.
It is primarily a mental focus, its not like the outside ski is just hanging around for the ride. If you only and always focus on balancing of the first metatarsel or something like that (not that there is something wrong with that, it is also important), chances are that you will end up with A-frame, split, V, inside bias etc.
For example, there are several ways to accomplish outside bias, e.g. push on the outside, or lighten the inside. How do you know that you are pushing enough on the outside?
Speaking of pushing, IMO it is an overused word in coaching. What does "you need to push harder" really mean? How can you push harder when the leg is already extended?
What you really want is more pressure, but it does not come from pushing, except for a brief moment.
Intuitively the best racers coached this way will find ways of increasing pressure, and they may even think that they are pushing, but again IMO it is better to tell them what the real problem is.
Maybe they are pushing too early? or too late? or maybe you need a faster transition, or finish the previous turn etc.
