jasp - IMO its quite simple. J3erry is banking his turns keeping too much weight on the inside foot. Because of this when he comes out of the turn his outside ski washes out and he STEPS onto his inside foot. What happens when you put weight on a foot that is flexed? You extend it offcourse. Thats why J3erry is extending so abruptly. IMO you start from the wrong end. You need to start correcting the movements earlier in the turn. There is nothing to relese as he comes through apex and the 3 phase of the turn. If you go back and look at his right turn after he was airborn from which I captured this frame:
You can see that J3erry carves nicely with outside ski pressure and pulls off a very nice relese. No washing of outside ski. No abrupt up-move. My analysis of this is that when J3erry doesent think too much of what he is dooing then he skis much better. In this case he was airborn and for a moment he forgot that image he has in his head of what its supposed to look like: huge edge anles, inside fist touching the snow, flying into the air at transition like a WC skier in the freeskiing videos. Difference is that J3erry has very little momentum to relese and to use for getting airborn. Just my opinion. Same happens later on in the video here:
After J3rry learns what movements he should use for maintaining outside ski pressure he can start to think about the relese and the transition. IMO there is nothing wrong with a ILE relese when starting to arc GS type of turns on easy flat gromers. Like the freeskiing canadians. Very good image to have in your head and replicate. J3erry knows how to do this only needs to be more patient in the transitions and particulary the upper C. In contrast to funcarving you dont have the negative impact of gravity that is pulling your body towards the snow in the upper C because of abrupt and massive projection. Insted you need to be much more patient. J3rry is also not familiar with the different consepts. Nobody told him what they are and what they do.
BTW, Raich uses movements that are optimized and appropriate for each specific situation that is correct. At the gate its not inclination. In that specific situation angulation is strong enough (edit)
