Ligety appears to be carving two arcs to distribute the load and maintain speed. First arc begins with his upper inside ski and second arc continues on from that with his outside ski. He's rolling two arcs, switching between inside and outside. As Shiffrin says, she knows what he's doing, it is just very tough to do.
Wild skiing by Ligety.
Great recovery by Ligety in a situation where he had everything to lose.

Watch his uphill ski when he starts a turn.

The year after this, Hirscher would win a medal at the 2015 Worlds.

I was playing a video game about that. It said you could get extra speed from tipping a gate (flag). No?
Amazing that Ligety pulled that off on a course that was done.
