C- I too would be interested in what Bob has asked but I will throw a few out there in the mean time.
Crab walk- Love this as it gets people to move AWAY from there outside ski to get edge angle, many people tend to move to the ski. This is done on the flats and from a wedge position pointed straight down the fall line. You focus on flatening the inside ski, so you want to go left focus on flatening the left ski. This will pull the right ski to a higher edge and start a carve to the left.
Ski the side of a dinner plate then ski the side of a bowl. What do you have to do to keep the skis on the rim? Show your top graphics down the hill.
High speed wedge turns down green terrain, take to blue (high level skier)
Stem extend turns. Stem your inside ski up the hill and put down on its inside edge with a bent leg. Now extend that short leg and ride around the carve.
On flat terrain start on a traverse and tip both skis down hill. Look at your track can you leave 2 thin lines curving down the hill or do they smear?
Pair skiers up lead skier draws turns in the snow as they ski with there pole. (nice C shape) Follower needs ski as close to the line as the can and always be on the outside of the arc. So they need to cross the line to get to the outside of the next arc.
Same pairs and line draw this time put a ski on either side of the line and don't touch the line. (edging and active inside leg).
Pivot slips (yes a rotary activity) I don't think you can have good edging skills with out VERY refined rotory skills.
Bob- I am intersted in your comment about people that may edge to early can you expand?
