Developing counter-acting while skiing. What is Austrian Counter?

If you truly want to develop counter acting movements in your skiing you have to exaggerate. This type of exaggeration, we call "Austrian Counter." 

Notice in the last three turns of the video below, "slow it down" I really turn my hips to show lots of counter acting. Yet, I never hold or park into that position. counter acting is a movement, not a position when done right.

 Above and below are photos clips from the video below, two different turns, from the same video, yet lost identical.
