Working on brushed turns with some really small bumps, etc.

look at 15 seconds, where would you like your pole tip to be?

I think for the shorter turns, your upper body would be better off with your chest generally pointing down the fall line throughout the turn.

If you stop reaching for with the pole and work on the "new" minimal pole plant, the bit of rotation should disappear.

Good call, MM...

We were so focused on trying to rid my early extension / push off / BTE heavy type stuff .. and replace with more tipping, lifting, flexing, etc, that the upper body reverted back to some bad habits. Just goes to show you...! The chest of drawers.... After reading your comment, it's obvious that my right arm/hand does exactly what you point out throughout.

Thanks for pointing it out. - Art

Is there an issue here of fore/aft? Things look a bit static in that department.

Slightly taller stance, hips forward, feet back. Flapper drills.

Harald has identified a boot fore-aft alignment issue for Art and suggested new boot models for the coming season to fix this. Much of the lowered stance is a result of this boot issue.
