I've recently come across the following advice in my reading about race technique:
1. Release just after fall line;
2. then proceed on as straight and as steep a line as possible (still on the old edges) to the rise line;
3. do not float along on flat skis between the two gates as this is slow;
4. at rise line change edges for new turn.
In this scenario it sounds to me like the edge change is delayed for a bit after the release. I gather that between the old gate and the rise line of the new gate, the torso/hips are moving rapidly across the skis as the skis continue pretty much on their old path, but with a reduced curvature to their line. By the rise line the hips & torso are way inside the new turn. Then the skis flip to new edges and carve out and around fast to catch up with the torso at/below the gate.
Have I read/remembered this right?
I'm no World Cupper. When I try to separate edge change from release it just doesn't happen. If I've understood this correctly as a useful thing to work on, are there some drills or words of wisdom that might help me out as I struggle with making it happen?
