It's only one picture. (And I'm swedish so my english is far from perfect. )

Agree on the hips and knees, but you may come to a point where you can trust the ski's so much that you just let them "catch you" instead of building up the turn from the soles. Then you can enter the turn pretty much any way you want to.
It's not what you would teach obviously, but for a skier like where you are today, I think it's not that far away.

I'm very much looking forward to more videos.
Carl, I love your entusiasm . Keep it up! BTW, in the US it seems to be the trick of the trade to speak of skiing from the feet and up. They use a kinetic chain consept. If you are interested take a look at this thread:

It gives an alternative that you might be more familiar with.

I think you do have some very good suggestions and I'm going to work with many of them to try to make some corrections to my skiing and I want you to know that I really appreciate your help on this.

Sincerely,

It really does not matter if you start at the feet or at the hips or knees. It should be simultanious movements. They should all happen at the same time. BTW, I ski from my head down .

This just might deserve its own thread. BTW, I disagree.

Yeah I know (that you dissagree) but check out the hard core thread. I believe you have made no postings there sofar.

Hi Kazooski!

I agree with you that I need to bend my knees less. When I watched the video again, I was surprised at how much my knees were bent. I want to aim for a vertical thigh. I constantly am telling my students to stick out their belly buttons to get them forward. (I teach a lot of children) and here I am with my butt sticking out! . Thanks for the great feedback!

I think you are making wrong conclusions. Its not your butt sticking out that is the problem, its where you point it that is the problem. If you look at your turn at 0:11 to the left you start it fearly well at the upper C with your hips into the turn but as you come to apex your square up, point your butt backwards and your downhill ski skidde away from you. Same thing repeted in the next turn to the right. My advice to you and many other is to stick your butt uphill and not backwards towards your ski tails. It is called upper body counter and it will help you angulate as well.

I looked at the video again tdk6 and see exactly what you're talking about. I'll work on it!

Thanks!
