That'll definitely work for arc-to-arc carved turns.
But Karlo wants shorter radius turns than that.
He's after "short swings."
A short swing definitely means a delay in engagement. But, it doesn’t mean that the ski is not tipped on edge very early in the turn. I’m fact, Reilly says that’s the first thing he his thinking and doing, tipping on edge starting with ankles.It's just a timing difference, delaying the engagement so the ski redirects some before engaging...
I think Noodler hit the nail on the head. Reilly actually is very explicit, that he is not thinking of active rotary. Instead, he his thinking about pushing his feet forward, advancing the leg. In so doing, there is rotary. I see it like pushing the door open. Is there rotary at the hinge? Yes. But, we don’t think of it as rotating the hinge.I don't believe that the short swing turns Reilly is making have anything to do with "pivot slips"...
The turns that Reilly is making do not make use of active rotary...
in this case Reilly's focus is on tipping and flexion and using the resulting rebound via "passive rotary". In this case it's the design of the skis that cause the skis to change direction (turn), not active rotary fed from leg twisting.
In my “Short Turns 1”, I was thinking “advance the leg forward”, trying to feel what he‘s talking about. In “Short Turns 2”, I really felt it towards the end.

Yup, that needs work. And, I found that it is not at all obvious when to set the edge, to end the swing. I was all over the place.it's accurate edging that is holding him (karlo) back
