Ur fairly darn stiff and static...shoulders rotated open and with the invisible girlfriend...loose the GF, grab your rear pant leg with trailing hand and hold it there.
Try riding the whole run with your elbow/forearms resting on your knees and clasp your hands/fingers together, keep your back straight, shoulders closed/parallel with the board...from this deep squat position feel the pressure on the ball of your leading/front foot to turn toeside and feel the pressure on your little toe to turn heelside (swing your leading knee forward toward the nose). Keep your weight forward on the nose. You will be also very static...but in a crouched position and you will notice that it takes very little leading knee movement to link turns....and you will feel very stable and be flying low...but still keep your knees and ankles loose to just bump and absorb inperfections on the trail/run.
Next do the run standing up and dropping down in the leading knee...bend both knees but pay attention to the leading knee....squat...don't bend over at the waist...(so low that your leading/front hand is with in 4-6" from the snow and reaching for (about 4-6" away/outside/beyond the nose toeside contact point when you turn toeside...then stand up (to a neutral closed position with weight fore/aft at 50-50) followed by dropping down in the knees and squatting and reaching for (again reaching about 4-6" away/outside/beyond) the nose heelside contact point when you turn heelside...then stand up followed by again reaching for the toeside contact point....really exaggerate the up and down)...and repeat...btw pay attention to the front foot/hand/shoulder and only let the trailing/rear foot/shoulder/hand float or follow along....don't kick your rear foot out nor your shoulder/arm/hand should just hang over the center line. NOTE that ur squating and not bending over at the waist to touch the snow. Do 3 or 4 runs squatting/standing and trying to touch the snow toeside/heelside...then go back and try to do the run stiff stiff leg and static.
