No I didn't imply that you are in the backseat. I was just trying to say how people look at a picture and try to imitate it. Like everyone skiing in the backseat after seeing pictures of Killy.
What I will point out though is that the "chair" position used to ski in that bowlegged stance will put you in the backseat if you try to hold it and complete the turn more (farther across the hill) like the kid on my team. If you looked at videos of those guys back then that bowlegged look was mostly in the transition and entry of the turn. The daylight between their legs disappeared as they increased edge angle into the gate. One of my friends has a picture on his dash(for the benefit of his kid) of Raich back then just about to contact a gate. His hip is almost touching the ground and there is no daylight between his legs. His outside knee is touching his inside ski between the heel and toe of the binding. His tracks are about 18" wide. Work on that image
I remember from another thread you mentioned that when you try to ski with a "narrow stance" (notice I haven't used that term until now and only with quotation marks) that your inside ski "got in the way". Make sure that you are canted neutral or slightly positive and try again, keeping the above image in mind.
Another static drill that I learned from HH (who, by the way, was given high regards as a race coach from a coach that I respect very much) is this:
On a gentle slope, with skis quite close together, make two little downhill edge grooves.
Assume an angulated position on your downhill edges.
Quickly switch to an angulated position on your uphill edges
Proceed to switch quickly from one position to the other without the aid of poles.
Tip: It's much easier the closer your skis are together. It's almost impossible in a wide stance.
Take that into your free skiing, again keeping the image of Raich in mind.
Good Luck, keep in touch.
I'm going to see U.P.Racer this weekend (and give him a taste of the "F-1" Bloody Mary mix)
