Stevensman was kind enough to make his video directly available to me so that I could use some specific frames to explain my previous comments.
Side note: It appears that PUTFILE does some strange things to video to force you to view clips directly on their site. I was unable to copy and paste clean images of single frames into Photoshop and successfully save them. Ideas anyone?
I've already shared what follows below privately with SM. He now understands what we've been talking about. I'm posting this mainly for others to learn/critique.
This is what I first saw. Nose slightly behind the toe&knees. I measure stance based on 90 degrees to the ski.
The same pic, but now the bottom line is lined up better with the left ski.. See how much weight is behind the heels
lifting left foot - butt behind the heels
followed immediately by lifting the right (your moving forward here, but you are already on your new edge - you're late!)
Here is what a centered stance looks like. The big tip lead makes it easy to be in between the boots..
Late in the clip, weight looks like it could be centered over the right foot, but it's way behind the left. This was followed by a big up move.
It was hard to tell where the weight was early in the clip due to the angle of the shot. This was 6 seconds in. Although these two frames were back to back in the clip, I suspect there might be one dropped frame. No matter. Notice how much the right ski has pivoted? You might be going over a little bump, but that pivot would not happen if your right hip was more forward in the first frame. Plus getting that right hip more forward automagically gets your CM more forward. Now look at the previous single frame above and imagine the position you'd be in with the right hip 4-6 inches more forward. That's the difference we're talking about when we say the weight is back.
