Marcel Hirscher skis PMTS
Lift and tilt the ski to release, inside little toe edge tipping first.
At the end of an arc he's releasing his skis forward, flexing to absorb the energy and about to transition (change edges).
(This is not the same turn as above) He has changed edges, pulled his feet back, his tips are on the snow, his tails are lifted. Contrary to what many coaches tell their athletes, he did not raise or move his hips up or forward. This is a pure pull back move, as taught in PMTS and that is demonstrated in the Essentials DVDs.
