I just took a clinic at the PSIA National Academy with Jim Lindsay of Bootech. I have no doubt that his work on boots is pretty good. He taught us that overedged skiers have too much of their weight on the outside edge, like a typical bowlegged skier, and that underedged skiers have too much weight on the inside edge, like a typical knock-kneed skier. I have no problem with this being the definition, but I believe that the diagrams in the PSIA materials show just the opposite, where overedged is a skier with too much weight on the inside edge, making it difficult to release the old turn. The issue then is not what the appropriate fix is but rather which set of definitions are most appropriate. Whatever definition gets used ought to be the same throughout the industry.
