Don't assume just because you are dealing with Instructors, they know what they are doing LOL!Your advice is basically "First go out and link some awesome turns and then figure out how you did it so you can tell others what to focus on." That's great if A) Your audience consists of instructors and B) they all already know how to achieve the result. In the case of this forum neither A nor B is true. So we're back to "how do I get there in the first place?"
Just the other day, I was working with a couple on carved turns who were decent skiers in terms of consistent centered balance and shape of turns. All I did was to encourage them to get to higher edges sooner rather than later. Big change in performance without a lot of tech talk.
Wasn't criticizing your post. Just picked up on your lamenting that you were failing to communicate with amypj. Sorry if I misinterpreted.What in the world does that have to do with boot setup and stance alignment? I wasn't referring to the act of skiing and how to make turns. You're trying to pull in some controversy here that didn't exist.
BTW whatever happened to cuff neutral? Remember the ski has a center of shape AND a center of ski which are two different places. Stance alignment should be with center of shape not center of ski IMO.
