interesting, I just had this converstaion today! You could be quoting me here, right down to the DIRT.

I started with : "The round turn is the basis for all turns." and ended with changing the duration/intensity of the elements gives you the rest of the turns, J, comma, PET, etc.

I am not much of a skier - but this phrase makes sense to me. My instructor at Stratton is always talking about making round full turns. This slows you down. I think sometimes he actually skies up hill a little bit at the end of his turn.

It's pretty hard for me to do this though.
