Was it about pivoting a highly edged ski? If by pivot you mean around it's vertical axis, that's for all intents and purposes impossible, since the edge is resting against the snow on both tip and tail, when the ski is highly edged. Skidding a highly edged ski? Sure, what's interesting in that?
You seem fairly confident in your abilities navigating this site. Perhaps you should go back and re-read your posts and mine as well. I've admitted my guilt and hipocrasy (i.e. letting my passion and new sensations get in the way of good coaching. You may even say I've dug a hole for myself).
So, I'll give thanks and praises
and say ...
Tip #1 - it is not pivoting a highly edged ski, but there are a couple of remaining skills that can help.
Tip #2 - don't think of skidding as skidding, think of it as RIPPING (and not in the bro-brah sense).
Tip #3 - there is a time and place for everything based first on balance then intent, always in that order. The D R T come next. Safety, fun, learn. Ring a bell?(Copyright)
I truly hope this helps if it sinks in. I'm trying to help people see the hidden picture within the picture as I learn myself.
