There is a reason that there are so many of these aids for golf: they work (at least sometimes). Video feedback is also easier (and works) in golf. But, I know that my golf teachers often hold the club, move my body into certain positions, and use aids to help me "feel" the swing (I still stink at it, but it's because I don't practice enough).
I think such aids would be great for teaching skiing.
We adjust what is in my arms & where they are - to let me feel them...& or some other body part... also so I can get visual feedback.... but touch is MORE important....
