I have been skiing for a while, fairly decent. Can get down most anything on the mountain, but may not be pretty on the more extreme stuff. I have never had lessons, just was taught by my dad. Everything I have always been taught was to keep your hips and upper body facing down the fall line.
My wife and I went to Whistler this past winter and she took a half day lesson. She is probably a level 3, leaning to ski parallel and link turns. The instructor told her to keep her hips and upper body facing the same direction as the skis.
Have I been doing it wrong all this time? Or is this a teaching technique?
