Default how the fuck do you ride glades?

Just came back from a 3 day trip to jay peak. great snow even in this shitty season that we're having. my question is... how the hell do you ride glades.. is there some different technique to it? i keep getting thrown around by the bends and the trees. farr to many near death experiences this weekend.

I added a ton of forward lean to my highback on the last day which made a huge difference in terms of control but is there anything else? I can do to improve my glade riding? how can i control my speed without having to stop.

i feel like every time i pick up good speed, i ended up getting thrown by a bend or a tree branch or a rock.
