Edge Change Handle Position

I read somewhere the other day that I should lift handle at the center line so I can unweight the ski. What does this mean? Sounds like that would move the handle from my hips and make me separated.

    I'd ask this question over in the Connection and Swing thread. I read those words also and had to re-read some of the thread to clarify. Clearly you want your handle near hips, or close to your COM. I think the notion is the COM comes up and the handle rises with it. Not that you should lift the handle alone.

    When I read that I thought it was totally "Capt. Obvious" and "why had I never thought about that before"? I mean clearly you need your COM to move up (or you need to compress your lower body) to allow the ski to flow away from the pylon. I am specifically talking about at centerline.

    It should surprise no one that I am not an advocate of lower body compression.
