to follow on to this ^^^^, most of the "action" happens all at the same time, then you sorta ride the edges until the next burst of action.
ideally one turn flows into the next, with no sudden spikes of action but rather a continual flow
I think you have some skills, but I think conceptually you would benefit greatly if you can make some changes.
The turn shape you are showing is a snaky type turn, but I don't think they are the best shape to show off your skills. In that sense I would advise you to pay more attention to shaping the top and bottom of each turn. A little further across the hill both at inception and completion of each turn would show more of your skill set. But what I see from a movement standpoint based on what you've shown is that you tend to move laterally side to side with little forward projection. And while I see that you need to project your CoM more down the hill this may be a result of your concept of the turn shape and what you're trying to accomplish. Additionally, I think you "balance point" where you tend to ride on the ski could be moved a few inches forward. From the angle of the camera it appears that you ride the ski a bit too far behind to be efficient in guiding action.
Again, while the snaky turn shape is fine for a demo vid I'd like to see something rounder. I think this is dictated by the terrain, so if this is what you have to work with perhaps a longer radius turn would reveal a better view of your bread and butter skiing.
I was really trying to avoid that. Let me approach it differently...
ON THAT TERRAIN, for the purposes of demonstration of demonstration of skills, I think I would like to see longer radius turns with the skis coming more ACROSS the slope in the completion/transition/initiation phases of the turn. I think a more rounded (rather than snaky) turn shape will be more instructive for you and either force you out of the strictly lateral movements or show you what you need to to do improve.
The way I teach and analyze always begins with the turn shape. That's why I didn't get too deep into movement analysis.
"My arms are out front the entire time". That is not what I see. You let your arms hang down to moment you reach the fall line. Furthermore its looks like you are making turns by throwing your weight from left to right and vice versa in stead of bringing your center of mass forward (by pulling your feet back) and putting your skis on edges. You ski pretty much straight up. Here are two drills for you...
Although I am not an instructor, I have something for you. You have a lot to work with and I would highly recommend a lesson from a well qualified instructor. Get a referral - where is this mountain?
My suggestion is to spend more time in the turn, to complete the turn. I also think that it would be good to try to drop down as you come around the outside of the turn... more as you finish that part of the turn... a nice firm controlled drop. Works for me. It also might help you get out or the back seat.
Telling someone to get out of the back seat is not as helpful as the "how" part.
Let's see what others say.
"The way I teach and analyze always begins with the turn shape. That's why I didn't get too deep into movement analysis"
Turn shape can really help a skier at this level.
Yes, let gravity draw you down. Keep good posture and stay centered and don't rush the turn. Your turns are round, but practice staying with it - complete the turn.
