Bud put up the following idea over in the coaching section. Its interesting and directly opposite of what I have been taught. Anyone have any additional thoughts?
One of my all time favorite holistic exercises is to simply widen the stance to shoulder width. This sounds simplistic however, by taking a wider stance, the transitions between turns become easier because the edge change is less intimidating. the new outside ski can be engaged before the cm passes outside (to the inside of the inside foot) the base of support. This adds a great bit of security to the edge change which helps calm the nerves.
