What is Counter acting in skiing?

The Phantom Javelin is a great way to practice your counter acting movements. The lifted ski placed at a forward angle over the stance boot helps to turn the hips to face toward the outside of the arc.
This is not your father's Javelin!

Notice the torso facing toward the outside of the arc and the inside hip leading the arc.
Leading the turn with the inside hip constitutes a counteracted relationship to the skis. To confirm this in your skiing, make sure you belly button stays facing your stance boot throughout the arc.
