Example - How Low can you go?
kneeling down on the hill while stopped, ask them to kneel tall. (knees, hips, shoulders all in a straight line)
Look at the edge angle (80-90*)
Notice how far you center of mass is from the snow. (2')
Keeping the upper body tall and poised in the direction of travel (but lean forward a bit to illustrate seeking a turn)
This is how low you can go.
Now while riding, try and emulate that position, you'll see how difficult it is but how effective it is to rail a carve.
