It's also a common internet message board convention.

Sure, but that doesn't make it right. The mods are working to clean things up around here and misleading quotes is one of the things that should go.

You're absolutely right Max.

I think that the passive you are referring to is different from the passive I am suggesting. There are two moments in which rotary movements of the legs can be considered passive.

First when the rotary movement of the legs FOLLOWS the edged ski as it continues to turn in the arc under and away from the skier. (the windup anticipation)

Second, when the rotary movement of the legs FOLLOWS the tipping of the skis onto their new edges. This will appear as knee angulation preceding full angulation at the fall-line.

You are suggesting that to get the skis onto the new edges, that rotation is the motive force -- I'm suggesting that rotation supports the tipping onto the new edges; rotation is certainly there, but it does not cause the edge change.

Other than that detail, I'm sure we are on the same page.
I agree BigE! Now we just need to get together and ski it! Thanks for your efforts to understand this concept.
