a couple thoughts, with the disclaimer that I am what was referred to in another thread as a "crackpot troll" credential-wise
- Nice, athletic, controlled, somewhat backseat skiing. You could take that technique to even some of the steeper-yet runs at Jackson and have fun and do ok. (The run you're on is steep, what I'm saying is you'd also have fun on say, Paintbrush, too.)
- other than a little pop to unwieght and steer the skis around, your knees and hips stay basically within 2" of each the whole time by my reckoning. You must be in great shape, because this is exhausting in addition to not using your skis and your body's leverage to the best effect.
The Ovation video you posted also showed very little to no A&E.
- your body is pretty much always aligned with your skis, therefore, say, when skiing left it's pretty hard to initiate the next turn to the right without the up-unweighting, again requiring a more-physical turn than need be.
- Metrons were fine for that snow.
- Process-wise, you've posted a couple movement analysis threads but say you seldom take lessons. In reality, unless you have unusually good ability to go from written word to practice nothing you read here will translate to a change in your skiing on the hill without an instructor or coach giving you a lot of feedback. This is particularly so since you're already a very good skier with strongly ingrained habits -- your body will want to revert to what works, and postivie change in technique will be uncomfortable and make you feel clumsy as it happens. If you really want to make your skiing more efficient and more dynamic, you're the type of skier in particular who would really benefit from a season-long program as well as maybe a week on Mt. Hood in the summer. I would choose one pair of midfats and get rid of the rest of the quiver and not buy anymore skis and the instruction is thereby funded.
One year with a gameplan for improvement would make a huge difference, but as noted you also ski quite well right now so you'd have to say to yourself why you wanted to improve.
-- Do you stretch or do yoga? You look pretty tight, the lack of A&E and the blocking movements with your upper body may also derive in part from this.
