Couple of points:
1: Wear the Fox Hat: You were NOT correct..what you were talking about, and what SkiRacer55 were saying are different...SR55 was saying keep you COM "More" centered by intiating turns by pressing down on the ball of the foot...in effect, actually applying the muscualar effort to straigten the ankle...not flex it against the boot cuff like you friend....now while you got the idea of not pushing into the boot, you missed the point that tip pressure is stilll applied...just in a different way...your post seemed to indicate we just roll the ski on edge, and hope for the best.
2: As for Ron...I wasn't there...but are you sure he wasn't making comparisons to skiing just a few years ago when the idea was push the feet through the turn...a technique mastered by Bode? I am sure he is still advocating tip pressure to start, middle for the middle and pressure the tail to exit the turn....that is what is still on his website. Hence being forward is RELATIVE to a few years ago, or certain skiers like BODE?
Also...as the turns get longer, it is possible to get out over the front of the skis more...becuase you have more time to bring your COM back to center for the middle of the turn etc...I believe that was Ghost's point Re: SG skis vs modern SLs. However as the turns get shorter you need to keep things more centered as you just don't have the time to move all over the place
