Troy.every time I try and drop knee, I either dig my edge in, or get my weight all wonky.
grifrowlAre you talking just skiing, or on rails/boxes?
Troy.Rails and boxes. I can tele everywhere else just fine.

KneeDropmake sure your boots are canted properly. my informal test for that is when you put your knee down, it should be centered on your ski.
Troy.Thank you for the help! When you say "canted properly", what does that mean?
ThaLoraxCanting is the angle of your boot (side to side) that brings your foot to a neutral position.
Troy.I'm assuming that you adjust that by screwing the cartridges evenly?
ThaLoraxSort of. Just make an appointment with Larry the bootfitter in Boulder and have him sort you out. It'll help your every day skiing too.
KneeDropwelcome to fun and frustration!!
i think its easiest to get on the box with both heels down, then sink into tele stance or nosepress..and get ALL the way down, like sittin on your heel
go a little slower and focus on flat skis/even weight(between feet)
