So the direction of momentum's the tangent of the arc.

 

just before that though, it was more lateral... ?

All this leads back to owning the ability to adjust stance by positioning the torso AND moving the feet. We use both most the time not one exclusively. The spectrum and percentage of either is turn dependent.

For the OP the answer is still to find neutral and become aware of how it feels when they are there. Only then will any of the advice about moving forward of their centered spot, or recognizing when they are aft of it make any sense.

We can elevate that discussion to include high end racing and dynamic recreational skiing but I would question the need for that.

Jasp, you may want to avoid referring to ability in terms of ownership.

 

You may confuse someone into thinking that a turn can be bought and a mindset that is a plateau unto itself. :)

You have to pay for that ownership with dedication to understanding and a ton of practice.

For the OP, shallow terrain is perfect for developing the ability to sense pressure changes on the bottoms/edges of your feet where you don't have to think or worry about anything else. Go make slow transitions from one set of edges to the other in slow, round turns.

Rich, ownership of a skill comes at a price, buying the information and putting it into practice are two ways we invest in that ownership. It takes both.
