Pivoting = Lame

"The skis are designed to carve an arcing path through the snow when they are sufficiently rolled on edge, and when sufficient pressure is applied to bend them into reverse camber."
"If you stand correctly on your skis, they will turn for you. If you apply correct edge angle and pressure to a ski, the ski itself will provide most of the required turning force."...Warren Witherell.

1) I keep trying that

but I still can't get the dang things to carve! I must be a gaper.

The secret is you have to tilt the skis onto their edges.

Your equipment should be capable of doing many things. 

Skis should: pivot, carve, float, skid.
Poles: timing aids, temporary crutches, plant stakes.
Bindings: attach boots to skis, open bottles.

 Wouldn't it be morally wrong not to expect your gear to do many things well?

Nope. Still can't get those Praxis to carve. Then again I can't find any hard snow either. Maybe that's my problem?
