I appreciate you time in considering my views on you skiing. Yes, I am a provocative fellow--sort of the gadfly on the rump of conventional wisdom.
Anyway, I'd go with how you feel. Hell, you are the guy out there cutting some very nice arcs! If it feels good, then go with it.
I would say, compare youself to the fellow in the photo: http://www.ronlemaster.com/images/20...aBadia-wm.html
His torso is not quite as far back as yours. Moreover, his arm carriage is more relaxed. You know, you can always tell a sprinter who's relaxed by watching the jaw. I think with skiers, it's not only the jaw, but the shoulder adn arm carriage.
Also, I can't tell from you photo, even though I magnified it, but are you using a lot of knee angulation and leg steering to cut this arc? At least more than Vonn is using.
Btw, you are lucky to have the strength you have. It is a real asset.
