I really should refrain from getting involved as instructor dogmatism is just not worth arguing about as I was just passing through, not planning to make a stop ; but misinformation and perhaps more kindly simple misinterpretation / misreading about physics and physiology blows and really should be corrected.
So A-man you are correct, this entire graphic relates to the old inside and NOW new and then progressively the current outside ski's edge angles throughout a turn, has absolutely nada, zero, zilch, zip to do with new and current inside ski! The other who thinks this is the old-outside/new-inside-ski needs to either read the original paper (http://brage.bibsys.no/xmlui/handle/11250/171325 and it is from the Norwegian School of Sports Sciences, so the Scandis here should know better) or simply note - no one, i mean no one other than a narrow cohort of instructors on epic and elsewhere (in Colorado and some Canadians who are not representative of Canadian skiing by any stretch) discuss ski turns being 'led by' or 'initiated by' or 'whatever by' /of the inside-ski, so grabbing onto something exposes confirmation-bias, which is fine, but it's just funny. This kid's thesis is NOT talking about the new inside ski/old outside ski and progressively current inside ski pretty much anywhere. So A-man, you are correct/were correct/remain correct.
I leave before I get caught in the crossfire = think of this interlude as a modest fact-checking exercise. (Corrections as even the resident Physicist amateur or pro, and he does know his mechanics, read it wrong, he should look up the original, it's plain as day, has NOTHING to do with inside skis pretty much anywhere..)
