Loading the tail is exactly as they have described it above. And it is used for the exact pruposes as has been described above. They didnt however describe how to get back on the tips of your skis, or in the center of your skis by the time you enter your next turn. If you start a turn very far foreward and get ahead of the skis to initiate the turn, you can let the skis catch up to your body by the middle of the turn. At this point you can pressure the outside ski in particular and let it get ahead of your body (putting you and your weight on the tail). As you transition the turn in order to move foreward again you will have to again send your shoulders foreward down the fall line, increasing the anglulation of your legs. Because you are angulated, you do not have to pick your body up to move it foreward. Rather, you can just throw your upperbody downhill and let the skis catch up again. Of course this is all done while maintaining proper edge pressure and stance so it is really an advance manuver. Once you master keeping a centered to foreward stance you can venture into trying out different parts of the ski, and working the ski in the turns to get more snap out of it. I find that it works best in slalom skiing, but can be applied to GS skiing as well.
