I'm jumpin' over many replies to enter this so
I may be repeating stuff already mentioned...
Have that upper body *lead the way down the mountain* (so to speak)..take that mental image
and you'll keep it balanced and leaning down the
fall-line, not leaning slightly uphill! Particularly in forming your FIRST turn down that
steep trail....use that Barnes-ism "Offensive Intent" frame of mind to stay balanced from the
very first second. You have to *Take the Plunge*
with the upper body....to say balanced and to stay in contact with the outer edges of your skis,
otherwise one starts skidding when your don't intend to.
