The skier/boarder thing was out of fashion some years ago, everywhere except some dark corners of the web.
Carl is spot-on. I'd note as a technical point that he is correct that the snowboard is normally loaded, but obviously it can be unloaded, too, even launched into the air off of the tail, etc., because the riding can be quite dynamic. Skiers could view the experience as similar to doing a White Pass turn, every turn, in some ways.
The assertion that early weight transfer leads to park and ride because you can't add weight later, aside from ignoring the actual way the forces are in general created in skiing, also ignores the experience of very dynamic racers, like Paerson in the video linked above, Maier, Rahlves, etc. all of whom frequently will use early weight transfer and reasonable frequently White Pass turn entries, too. Internet skiing mileage may vary.
Well it may be just a matter of translation. A weight transfer to us is really a full commitment to the next outside ski. I think you may consider what we would call engaging the edges, but not yet transfer the weight fully?
