Whatever... 37% ~ 50%. I'm pretty sure that aiming for a 50-50 weight distribution is worthwhile effectively you are trying to maximise the pressure on the back foot. Its not like you load up for a turn, and then go "righto, 37% weighting on the back foot... whoa that'll do 'er... don't want too much weight on the back foot."

Yes... clearly that is the point.

In any case, with the right skiing stance it's not possible to evenly distribute your weight between your two feet, with one foot further down the hill than the other. Its like carrying a couch up a flight of stairs. The bloke at the bottom of the stairs gets more of the weight.
