I ride a lot of tight glades (whenever we get the snow), and I find that you really need to pick your line(look 5-10 seconds ahead), and then commit. Look through the gaps you want, and absorb whatever bumps are underfoot, you'll see the rocks if there is any if you're looking ahead.

Other thing though is keep your nose up in the powder, but that's pretty obvious.

If you're just starting, ride a glade in parts where you're only a couple of trees from a groomer, and you can easily cut out back to the groomer when you pick up to much speed, scrub, and go back in to the woods.
