Without ever having it done, it seems as though cambell and other forms of fore/aft balancing are done on a level surface.

How does this affect the dynamics of skiiing on a slope?
I can understand that the effects may be correct for flatter slopes, but what happens as the terrain gets more steep. Is there an inverse relationship?

Obviously a skier wants to stay centered over a ski (ie, not tailgunning or other symptoms of poor form), but the nature of the force vectors, force of gravity and normal force have changed.

Has there been any thought into this area and has anything been done to account for it?
