I like to think of tipping as increasing edge angles using leg movements. IMO tipping is done by using leg muscles to tip our lower legs which in turn tips the ski boots which in turn tips the skis on edge. As the leg tips and tilts while the hips stay in place there is rotation of the femurs in the hip sockets. Since the leg rotates and the knees point to the side but the skis remain facing forward there is some rotation at the ankle as well. If the skis were flat on the snow or up in the air they would also rotate. So be careful when your skis are flat on the snow at the transition. They easily pivot and twist. Like in a two footed release drill. Tipping is a way of increasing edge angles without moving the skis out from underneath you. Complement with angulation and counter. As you tip you need to shift your weight out over the outside leg by leaning in that direction to stay in balance. Note that people have different ankle rotational range of motion. More range of motion, more tipping angles. Also, you almost instantly use up all your tipping range. Its not something that you gradually increase. Crank it, hold it, release it. Think carving narrow corridor OLF short turns quickly down in the fall line. Or as my graph suggests, use it later on in the turn. If used in steered turns it increases the steering angle. In conjunction you can also use foot tipping inside the boot, see below, or twist your foot in the opposite direction.
Others refer to tipping as sideways pressure generated by the leaning movement of the foot and the ankle inside the boot. This movement tips the ski boots. Outcome is the same. Skis tip on edge, feet tip, knees point to the side, rotation at your hips sockets, ankle rotation inside the boot, compensating the shifted balance by upper body movements etc.
Let me respond to this: I challenge anyone to show a video where you are standing still and slowly twist you skis in the same direction
I don't have a video of that right now but its very easy. Put your skis on, stand on a flat slippery surface, grab a hold of a fixed object in front of you with both hands and slowly twist your skis back and forth underneath you by rotating your legs.
Let me respond to this: Rotational range of motion in the ankle? If you tension it there is no range of motion!? This is to mimic you claim that you cannot move the foot in a tight boot.
Lets see what wiki has to say about Tension: Tension (physics), a force related to the stretching of an object (the opposite of compression)
I don't think that's too far off. Stretching of ligaments. I also don't claim that you cannot move the foot in a tight boot. Just that I cant and don't think its a good working cue for me. Also, the point is not to be moving your foot in the boot. The ide is to cause pressure. This pressure is what is causing the boot to tip. Asked a WC skier the other day if he can tip the foot inside his boot. He said no, its very tight. How do you tip I asked. I tip my legs he said. Go figure. Its like this pushing thing. WC skiers claiming they push while expert on the net claims its not possible.
How does this relate to the OP question about favourite drill to increase angles. So far I think I'm the only one that posted a video of my favourite drill. Nobody commented on that.
