How To: From the GROOMERS to the GLADES...

any tips? i feel pretty confident on marked trails. went into some glades with my buddies at Stowe and felt COMPLETELY lost. fell a bunch, went super slow, sliding my way down.

was scary and a huge workout. other than feeling comfortable with turns, looking BETWEEN the trees and taking your time, anything else to learn?

also are there easier glades i should start with? not sure who's familiar with Stowe but we hit some glades at the top of upper nosedive. the guys i were with remarked that this section of glades was particularly hairy.

for those not familiar w/ the glades i'm speaking of...these are them (not my video). skip to around 02:00
