... throw another dart at the current trendy "wisdom" that you should try to "get forward," pressure your ski tips, pull your feet back behind your hips, or any such related ideas ... find at least a "neutral" balance point, pressure centered beneath the tibia (back of the arch, just forward of the heel)--not forward! This "neutral" point does put more pressure on the aft part of the ski, freeing the tips to turn down the hill with ease.

Thanks Bob for clarifying question which I had asked about "pulling the boots backwards" in another thread. Hope to hook up with you this year at Stowe and work on this "neutral" point . However, I think that I've got it after reading and practicing on a beginner slope for many hours and many days on what you clearly described in another thread concerning this "neutral" point and not having to "force" anything when done correctly while initiating turn.
