I do see what you mean Mike. The grip of the turn mid-way through its carve being as crucial as the catch and spear in swimming. Its seems so fundamentally easy to apply these theories to both sports, but as we, and a lot of others know, it takes a while to gain that awareness in the moment it is happening. Something that is hard won in both skiing and swimming...probably more painfully in skiing though. I must go to the wrong resorts. Have yet to get a swim on a ski holiday!
