High C edge change.

One of my favorite photos, because it shows all the movements I work so hard to produce, yet don't always show up the way I want.
The falline or downhill direction, runs perpendicular to my skis. My body is downhill or upside-down. Yet the momentum from the previous turn, keeps me from falling over. This is one of the goals or targets you can achieve, if you are carving your skis with good connecting movements from turn to turn.
The movements that make this possible are flexing the legs to get out of the previous turn. Tipping the skis, boots and legs toward the new turn, and counterbalancing with the upper body at the beginning. Like in this photo.
