Study the photos. Note that all the racers have their outside extended with a small angle at the knee. The question I will begin to address in my next post is why is the outside leg extended. What advantage does it give these racers? How does it affect their ability to load and control  their outside ski?

  1. Worley (top photo) has higher edge angulation, inside hip closer to the snow, and better carving with less snow spray as judged by how much of her ski base is visible.

  2. Centre of mass is closest to following a straight line. While it’s just the lower body making a turn.
