The concept of where and how to distribute overall pressure is a LARGE conversation. The terms in question however, are not subjective: pressure is measured relative to surface area (for example: pounds-per-square-inch), weight is not (for example: 125 pounds). Weight is a contributing factor to available pressure. While you may be burning calories while skiing, it is very unlikely your weight will change significantly during a turn. Finally, I should note, that pressure can be altered (ski to ski) only within a limited range via flexion and extension in the legs before your weight (or CM) will be affected (and have an effect on the pressure between the ski and the snow).
Physical laws (on earth) do not change due to environment, nor human anatomy, agility, conditioning or ability.
