Participated in a clinic with a group of instructors today. Bet very few teachers got to ski all day at the big resorts! Anyhow... we did pivot slips and a raging debate ensued about open closed ankles,tib/fib angles, and boot pressure. The question is as follows. At the completion of the pivot slip I sought to control the corridor by standing in a fairly neutral position with open ankles and my hips/shoulders turned slightly downhill. Due to my hips being slightly open/turned downhill I felt as though both my fibula's were at the same angle, that being relatively vertical with no pressure on the tongue of my boot.

Is it safe to say current teaching encourages little pressure on the front of the boot with fore/aft balance controlled by knee and hip angles? Let the debate rage on at epicski.
