Default Question on "steeps" for snowolf....

Snowolf - I've been trying to shorten my turns on the steeper runs. Normally going down the easier black diamond runs we have here I would have to traverse across the hill to the other side then turn and traverse across again. I was watching the snowprofessor video on "steeps" and was trying their "windshield wiper" method. This was my first day trying this method. I was able to not have to traverse across the mountain as much - does it look like I am somewhat doing what they show? I know I still need to bend my knees more, but I do have knee problems and am wearing knee braces so this is about as "bendy" as I can get. Am I making some progress from last year??? lol

Here is a video from those black diamond and blue runs today.
