You are right! I do recommend feet wide apart going 60. I've been at course-side for one World Cup downhill, many years ago at Jackson. They were averaging 60 mph on the course and hitting 80 at the fast spots. They were going throught the air so fast that the air was whistling as they traveled. Yes, Franz Klammer and the rest had their feet apart, and it's still done today.
I know, anyone can pick any one race pic and claim that it illustrates any point. Here's mine...http://www.ronlemaster.com/images/20...e-width-A.html
Hermann Maier in GS...note how his left ankle is about an inch from his right knee. That is an inch of horizontal separation, and enough vertical separation for the angulation he needs. Also, there is very little inside ski tip lead...those are my points.
Mario Matt showing the same things with even less inside tip lead: http://www.ronlemaster.com/images/la...2004-sl-1.html
He's balanced partly because his inside foot is pulled back under his hip.
