I am looking for context to frame an answer because I'm sure there will be some thoughts (to put it mildly) from others. :-)
So, what is it in golf? Is it a particular move or a series of moves, as you referred to in your post? Is it a movement pattern or what? Keep your left arm straight on the back-swing or Shifting weight between feet? The grip?
Maybe a thought from the teaching side of golf can help. It is my belief there is a "Magic Moment", that 4/1000 of a second the ball is on the clubface; the prepatory moves (grip, posture, alignment, swing path-on and on) that have occured prior to that moment will determine the outcome of that brief instant in time. After that you are reduced to the role of spectator-even if you talk to the ball.
The "Magic Moves" are those sequentially correct moves which can most effeciently, and repeatedly us to the correct impact position. The tried and tested fundamentals, adapted for our own morphology, will allow us to achieve that impact position. However, offsetting wrongs can also allow good shots, but rarely repeated great shots.
So I'm not sure there is a magic move in skiing. Or is it a different move for each of us. Having said that one of the tried and true axioms of golf is that 80% of what causes a shot to go astray happens before we ever move the club (grip, posture, aligment etc.). So maybe (disagreeing with ssh a bit) in skiing it is stance and balance which then permits appropriate, effecient and effective moves.
At any rate, off to the Learning Center to practice retaining the shoulder lag while creating the left side post allowing me to drop into the slot and unleash the power package at the appropriate moment and trying to get that little white SOB to go where I want!!!
