Think of applying weight to your working ski by bending the other leg. The secret to getting expert levels of edging is to flex the uphill leg to shift weight and allow room to move the downhill boot into higher edge angles. Part II of this secret is to keep your legs fairly close so unwanted pressure doesn’t build on the inside ski. When it’s safe, crank up the speed on this one.
