Three different types of releasing by a World Cup skier in one 20 turn section.

Dominik Raschner shows 3 different releases.

This is a weighted release when the stance leg is bent, and retracted without a transfer to the new stance ski. Von Gruenigen was the master at the in GS.

The Classic PMTS "phantom Move" release is the most common release used by top skiers.

The "Phantom Move" release first introduced in 1997 in my book, "Anyone can be an Expert Skier 1".
The two footed release is the most sophisticated movement and requires a coordinated lift while the hips are settling and bot legs are bending equally.
