I've not taken a ski school lesson for 10 yrs so I'm wondering what's being taught these days and if any significant changes have developed. As an example do instructors teach initiating a turn by "tipping" the inside foot as shown in these two How To Ski videos below? The skiers on this site who have taught like Carveman, PM, DWD, Seth etc would likely know where the ski schools are taking instruction. Duck may be the best to answer seeing he recently updated his full cert Australian qualifications. I never came across this 'tipping" concept/movement in any of the private instruction in USA, Canada, NZ or Australia I received. I know a reasonable amount about the system (PMTS) the video's instructor has documented and teaches although, I'm not an instructor and only ski a few weeks a year. This tipping of the inside ski to initiate a turn and the continuous focus on tipping it to tighten the turn radius, is the first movement/skill to learn in the PMTS system and is emphasised continuously right up to the expert level. I don't want to turn this into an "Epic" flaming type thread. I'm just very curious about what's being taught. On Youtube the only other reference I've seen for the inside foot tipping concept is on this video below of the Korean demo team at Interski, made by Aussie instructor Paul Lorenz. Watch commentary @ 2.20. This basically aligns with what is being described in the two videos above. The difference is the Koreans are demonstrating as expert Demo Team members and one could conclude they are simply using an expert's tricky advanced movement. What the first two video's show is a system of teaching that takes that "expert" tipping movement of the inside ski and uses it as part of the foundations of a whole teaching system.
