HopperAsk yourself why you hop. Why do you feel the need to "get them around" so fast. (Im assuming you are on shaped skis, and they arent too long, too straight, or too stiff?)
I have been working on the same thing you are describing. I have found that keeping both feet under me helps a great deal.
Try this next time your out. Let me know if it helps
We used to call this the shuffle, ( where we would shuffle both feet back and forth 1/2 a boothlength or so throughout a traverse or turn) but I think it can be modified for modern equipment by simply controlling the amount of tip lead between your ski tips as you go through each turn. Some (uphill ski) tip lead is natural and functional, but too much will get you out of alignment and make you feel like you have to hop over or around your downhill ski to start the turn.
start with a traverse to get the feel of this. focus on the downhill ski. as you traverse across the hill, pull your downhill ski back under you by flexing at the ankle and bending your knee while moving your leg back slightly. then let it come back forward (total distance is only 1/2 bootlength). do this on and off across the hill. feel the pressure on your boot cuff with your shin.
Heres the important part as you take this into a turn: as your downhill ski becomes your uphill ski, keep it pulled under you as your turn develops and find the right amount of pressure/flex/lead to allow a smooth transition.
This will keep the uphill ski from getting too far ahead. You can be centered over your downhill foot the whole time, but if you let your uphill ski get too far ahead, you will not be centered over it with the inside half of your body. (strong inside half ) This opens your hips too far to the new turn and makes your downhill ski feel like its "in the way" as you start your next turn.
This is only part of it but addresses defensive movements. Look for them in your skiing, and improvement is not far away
Good luck and happy skiing
