Conditions permitting, I will carve as much as I can. 80% ish if good snow. There is nothing better than gliding around the hill silently, while feeling the g forces of a roller coaster. If there is ice, death cookies, or chop, I'm usually screwing around more and carving less.

But yeah... most people don't know what carving is, or if they do, they can only do it when exiting a turn and moving across the hill. Carving while entering a turn is a bit more difficult and takes more skill and confidence, since you are tilting your board on the edge that could cause you to tomahawk if you aren't moving parallel to your edge.
