an additional thought: I try to avoid "hockey stops" to theoretically keep wear on my edges down, so if there is room at the bottom of the run near the lift line, I try to carve uphill to scrub off speed smoothly, most times I can almost do a complete circle and there is no sliding at all. I used to ride with a GPS just for kicks so I could look at my speed to get an idea of it. I crashed at about 50 MPH once and it felt like driving a car down the freeway- only without the car.... kind of scary. That stuff sort of goes along with this style of riding
