Bud, I'm simply trying to enlighten you. You don't seem to know what carving is, exactly.
RicB, I never got a chance to respond to your post, but that is a very interesting idea. For what it is worth, when I want to add some skid to the carve on a turn I have found the way I can best control that motion is by pulling my inside foot back intently while relaxing edge angles.
The combination of these movements, or at least the execution those thoughts generate, produces a very easy to control drift in the turn. I don't think about twisting my feet to accomplish that though. The tends to result in a nice round turn as well without a kink in the top of it since the motion is a consistent intensity applied over a long duration. These are the same movements I use while carving as well, only I don't use as much force on the foot pull back and definitely use more edge angle.
It would be fascinating to see if using other thought cues to produce drifted turns also result in virtually the same muscular recruitment.
