I made a possibly mistaken immediate assumption that full extension at turn entry was not the goal. If that is the goal, I would be curious why....
... although one would certainly get a very distinct falling feeling as they quite literally have to fall into the turn in order to generate any sort of angles.
That's why the "falling" feeling goes away as you start getting the up movements out of your skiing I think. Since you aren't directing your CM upwards any more than necessary, you don't have as far back down to go. It's a controlled drop rather than a toss and catch kinda thing.
