I think this comes down (for anyone) to the old adage "are we doing what we say or are we doing something different?" (This and people often see their own flaws in others skiing. Their eyes and minds are keyed in on those moves and "errors". Take that FWIW when reading feedback from others...)
I know from teaching 100's and 1,000's of people skiing, that many times I'll ask them what they are doing to turn a ski, and their answer is 100% wrong (I prove that to them by exaggerating the movement they say they are doing). The reason is, in skiing there are things that we DO and things that we FEEL. Often these are not the same thing. In my own skiing, I give myself feedback by searching for a FEELING, knowing that I have to DO different things in different situations to get that SAME feeling. FWIW, in different situations, I might search for DIFFERENT feelings....
But that's just me, (and I fancy myself with a fairly high kinesthetic awareness.....)
