That is all.
A "skill" is a "proficiency, facility, or dexterity that is acquired or developed through training or experience". In this case, there is a skill of managing pressure on the ski by moving the feet in such a way as to increase or decrease pressure fore/aft or laterally (between the two feet). Your movements of pulling your foot back and lifting your foot are two movements within the constellation of movements that make up this skill.
Therefore, these movements are non-exclusive examples of movements that constitute pressure management skills. They are not synonymous, and that's not what I intended to imply. However, there are parallels between the two paradigms as I understand them, and this is an example.
Of course, if the goal is to have one paradigm be the exclusive purveyor of truth, then this conversation has no opportunity to create learning. That is not my perception or belief, but it often seems to return there.
