    Is that on Tweedle Dee? I've always wondered what these small sticks in the ground were.

    Body Shaping is a combination of knee angle, hips slightly to the inside of the turn, and the upper torso and shoulders over your feet, viewed from the front, you make a "C'' shape with your entire body. Alpine racers use mostly hip angle, but in moguls we have to keep our feet more contained and therefore "body shaping" can help to achieve a higher edge angle. If you watch a World Cup Mogul skier you can see this by  a slight tipping of the shoulders.
