 CSW #33: "Always ski in balance"

Surely all will agree this skier has his upper body positioned behind his boots. So is he out of control or does he have a purpose? Likely he will next extend his legs for a landing. But he still may wish to stay a bit back, for when his skis land in the snow they will sink into it a bit and slow up, with his body then continuing forward until he is again in a balanced position. It's the same reason that--when we ride on an accelerating or decelerating bus or train--we move opposite the direction of acceleration or deceleration until we are moving at the same speed.
