Both skis are engaged and bent in the shaping phase of the turn. Speed is controlled through turn shape. Fore/aft prressure is managed through proportional flex/extending of all joints. Both legs rotate in hip socket at the same rate and time. Tipping movements come from a combination of inclination and angulation.
