Doing single-foot slow skiing, I find myself needing to push the stance leg forward when I transition to the outside edge.

|If you are heavy into the front of the boot (over flexed), it's harder to supinate the ankle enough to get to the new edge. Plus, those muscles are generally not very stron in relation to the the muscles used to pronate.|
|You might also be able to do this by standing on your skis on pillows (soft surface) indoors. Put some pillows under your skis at the boots and also toward the front of the skis. Maybe do this in front of a full length mirror. Watch your knees as you flex forward in a normal skiing position. The advantage to doing this indoors is that you can do it with shorts on and see your knees better than if you were in ski pants.|
