I'm looking for some technique help. I took a group lesson a few weeks ago from a PSIA examiner at Alpine Meadows. He told me that at the very beginning of my turns, especially on steeper and mogulled terrain I rotate my skis with my feet to intiate a turn. He stated that the middle and end of my turn was fine. A tip he gave me in order to decrease the rotating movement was to try to initiate my edge change by raising the arch of my downhill foot at the end of the turn and then progress with the pressure change up my legs. I've tried this and have a hard time raising my arch. Any other suggestions on how to achieve this? Is a little bit of rotation at the beginning of the turn necessarily a bad thing?
