Been away too long.

Glad I will not be giving up skiing before finding the easy way.

I would assume that an L4 instructor can switch between exercises from different philosophies on request.
Or are they too specialized at that level ?

There are NO youtubes featuring a two step turn using two arm movement, as in Effortless Skiing Drill One and Drill Two.
There are many comic efforts of exaggerated reverse shoulder slides (simultaneous top/bottom movement. )
Skis slide to one side as arms are flung to the other side.
Top windup should eventually not affect the turn in any way .
It is the blocking of that movement which makes it work, of course. :)

This. This is Effortless Skiing. Nothing, and I mean nothing, even compares. Make sure Natalia sees this! She will pull her book from Amazon when she realises Reilly has unlocked true ES.

Took me half the vid to realise he was taking the piss...
Trying to, but notice that he is using 100 y.o skier style.
His right hand comes across (a tiny bit)to wind up anticipation for the next turn.
Following Natalia's edict, the top of his body follows his head into the new turn.
She could use that to update her illustrations.

Reilly's reasonable comment:

" Even though this is a parody, in reality I have no problem with people skiing like this or wanting to ski like this. It just depends on the skiers goal really, anything to get the people on the hill enjoying the sun, snow and mountains. If this is what it takes! Horses for courses! "

I just wanting to stress that "Effortless Skiing" is no parody.
And I have pointed out how the fastest racers in the world use the moves that are never included in our local descriptions because they violate the "Feet First" nonsense.
" Do nothing in the top of the turn" might be literally true, but what you bring there is crucial.

So, to ski like Reilly, book him one on one for a day.
