I would suggest you watch these two videos of Diane, Harald and Jay on carvers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KKiwq-j ... r_embeddedhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2XJ9a_2 ... re=related
Notice how quiet their upper body is and how their hips articulate, and the feet work underneath, letting their hips stay on the inside of the arc, then contrast that to yourself.
What I see is that you are not relaxed and fluid and letting your feet work under neath you. You tip fine from your feet up to your knees , but then it stops. It should continue on up, letting your hip also tip inside of your feet and the arc, then counter balancing from there on up. You are attempting to counter balance with your hips also, keeping yours to the outside of your feet or the arc.
I think there are a few issues. One is that it is much harder to relax on the carvers, these issues do not show up as dramatically in your vimeo skiing videos although they are there. Since you are so stiff in the hips in this video, I think you may not have the lateral flexibility in your hips, that you need, to make the proper movements.
The stretch I do is to stand sideways to a wall with my feet about 24" away, rest my shoulder against the wall then try to press my hip to the wall, holding for 5-10 seconds and repeat 10 to 20 times. I also do side crunches on a roman bench/ chair with 35-50 lbs. Similar to this video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5i6DDJTd89I
And it would help you if you understood and executed the vertical tipping of the hips/pelvis as you skied, as shown here.
See explanation here: http://harbskisystems.com/online-ski-le ... ncing.html
when you tip, raise your inside hip.
If you watch your ski videos using the hip o meter, notice that you do not raise your inside hip. The poles tip towards the hill. Push down harder on the outside hip/pole and raise your inside hip and it will work better. The goal is to try to get the poles on your hip closer to parallel with the slope.
Also I watched your sideslips on your outside/downhill foot then turning, which was leading to a stem turn. Reverse that and sideslip on your inside/uphill foot then tip and turn, and you will not stem.
Climbing and Skiing is still good here on Mt. Shasta. The corn snow has been absolutely perfect the last 3 weeks.
