Inside ski use - Page 2

Is the lift an artifact of pressuring and levering off the uphill ski at completion?
post #32 of 40
Sorry for the confusion Bud, I'll try to be clearer next time.

I think we're taking this outside ski out of context a bit here. Right before releasing it forward the skis are converging and according to Greg this is due to the outside ski bending under the greater load (relative to the inside ski and the load it is carrying). Increasing the load on the inside ski has something to do with releasing the outside ski but I'm not sure I would call that levering off the inside ski. The idea as presented was that the tongue pressure on the inside boot/leg increases and produces tip pressure on the inside ski.
His agenda seems to be a need to debunk some modern myths.

It looks like the lift occurs when the skier is still back, hence the tip going up. Recentering occurs through pulling the foot back.

Purpose would be to continue the turn on the inside ski by bending the tail, and creating a transition dominated by a *strong* forward (recentering) movement.

I think Justanotherskipro is correct. The movement is much like walking.

You are probably meaning the new outside foot, not the inside foot that is mentioned in your previous sentance. If not, then I dont understand.

I do not know, I am austrian and all that but I have not ever heard of that or I may just not understand this very well in english. But is that even possible? I also know the author of the book very well and know his stance on things. I say in speed anything can happen, but not necessary always intentionally.

TDK6's video example is SL, so the technique ought to be one that is taught. It sure looks intentional! There is even a turn where the movement appears completely unnecesary.

BigE, did you see the turn prior to the freezed frame? There he does not raice the ski tip. You are right, he really does not need to do what he is dooing in the turns if he is not gaining speed or its just the way he skis.

If I recall, this was during Bode's backseat campaign, where it was claimed that the tail of the ski is the fast part, the shovel is the slow part.

This skier is just skiing on the tails of the skis. Lifting with the tip in the air shows his weight is far back.
