Well, we seem to be getting to the crux of the issue now.
Forward pivot point is typically casued by being too far forward and/or a upper body rotation. In you case you appear to be in the "and" category. Again not uncommon.
A few people mentioned working getting rid of the upper body rotation...but my advice is to first work on the fore/aft balance issues. Interestingly, I think Skinerd is saying the same thing, albeit his approach to fixing it is different to mine.
If you start to develop the ankles ability to move more, you will be able to open the ankle to start the turn more, which in turn will make independent leg steering (ILS) much easier, at the moment I would think it is virtually impossible to develop ILS or show any significant upper/lower body separation. You can try this in your living rooom. Flex your ankles like you have them in your boots, straighten at the wasit to extend as you do...and then try to rotate a leg in the hip socket. You will see it is tough due to the hip orientation.
Hence my advice is to work on the ankle...the goal will be to start the turn with a more "open" ankle joint, this will enable you to develop more ILS and less upper body rotation, it will also enable you to move more across the skis at transition enabling earlier edge, further you will have better fore/aft balance starting the turn, which should result in better fore/aft balance and the ILS will result in more counter allowing for higher edge angles and more performance as the turn continues...no need to adjust later on to compensate...just pure performance!
Plus with the functioning ankle and resulting improved fore/aft balance you will be able to employ other transitions easier. Better balance always leads to more options for the skier. I agree with TDK6 in that this issue is actually very common.
Yes Skidude, I think we are saying pretty much the same thing ... with a slightly different teaching methodology
I think there is a misunderstanding here... The advice was to straighten the ankle more at the start... not to flex them more.
(Flexing more in the ankle and the waist while flexing less in the knee would put you even further forward.)
