Is this the drill you were working on?

As in a regular super phantom, transfer balance to LTE of the uphill ski. Then, touch the inside edge of the lifted, dowhnill ski to the inside ankle rivet of the stance boot ("inside foot arch touches outside foot ankle"). Keep it touching while tipping the free foot further toward its LTE. Don't let that free foot touch the snow until the very end of the turn. VERY IMPORTANT STEP! At the end of the turn, when the free foot touches the snow on its LTE, immediately pick up the new free foot, and touch-tilt the new stance boot.

Nice work. Looks like the result of diligent practice. Smooth, round, symmetrical turns. Here's what I would do from here - get lower, tip the free foot to its LTE like crazy, then flex even lower as you release from the stance BTE by tipping it to the LTE as much as you can.

Your footage demonstrates linked SP turns. The touch/tilt drill is different. By design the drill will challenge your ability to balance on the LTE (for a moment as you transition to the BTE) and to stay balanced on the BTE through the new turn. Follow the directions exactly as they are written and let's see if there is a difference.
