I don't even really think about where my weight is. It seems that I will adjust my weight distribution through the course of the turn without consciously thinking about it. At the beginning of the turn, I release my downhill ski as I would in any other situation by relaxing and flexing the inside leg. At that point my new outside or stance ski is weighted more than the new free foot. After that, it seems like my weight distribution will seek it's own level, that is my feet will react to whatever pressure is required to maintain balance, untill the finish of the turn. In the transition between the finish of the old turn into the beginning of the new turn, my weight distribution is probably as close to 50/50 as it is in any part of the turn. But I can't really say that I strive for any specific number, 60/40/, 70/30, etc, in any part of the turn. I more or less just respond to the pressure I fell under my feet at any given time. Just my take on the subject.
