And do the skiers in the video need more foot pullback as well?

There is a serious lack of counter or holding the counter at release, notice the distance required in the edge change. Also lots of up extension and then sinking down. Where this really shows up and has a major impact is in the short turns, which are not at a very high level.

Thank you Harald and Doug for the input, it is much appreciated! I have learned a tremendous amount from this forum and all of the PMTS materials, it seems there is constantly more to learn... :D

compare the last video which I believe are Italian skiers to this one and the differences are quite noticeable. This is high end PMTS skiing vs high end traditional skiing:

Basil, yes there is a huge difference, but the skiing isn't very helpful for learning. Few can break-down the movements and use them from a level of skiing this quick and dynamic. That's why we show and demonstrate PMTS movements in slow or in a stationary situation. Also, the practice should be slow and controlled.

Ok, so I have been working hard on my SMIM, CA for the last month and have had pretty good results based on what I can see. Occasionally I forget to no swing pole plant, but it doesn't always unwind my counter anymore. I also tried something new. The first video is how I usually ski...the second video I am focused on using momentum from the release to start the new turn. Is my SMIM moment still CA? and is the second video better skiing than what my other videos have shown? I think that it is, but would appreciate input. Thanks!
