Maybe, maybe not.
Could a skilled skier manage the forces on the skis so that they don't wash out even as the skis are being flattened?
Could the skier "pull" the skis into a bit more arc with an active inside foot near the end of the turn even as the CoM is moving toward the new turn?
Could this be added after increasing edge angle to achieve a tighter arc? I.e., crank 'em over toward the end of the turn, just as BTS sez, and then, as the skis flatten a bit ('cause the CoM has moved too far toward the new turn to let our superstar skier maintain the edge angle), balance just right to prevent the wash out and add a just enough steering to encourage the skis to follow their arc a little longer - but just a little.
Clearly the skis will tend to straighten their line of travel as they are flattened. Could the skier add just enough of the dreaded rotary to persuade the skis to continue the arc for another meter or two before they are allowed to straighten their path?
Is this possible, or am I in Fantasyland?
How does one add a bit of a round
"fish hook" to the end of a turn, if one chooses to do so?
Is there more than one way to do this?
