Why we don't try to steer on the feature
On Sunday I watched from the lift as some guy hit the 8-foot down-box on Mushroom. Partway down the box for whatever reason he decided to do a toeside turn. Maybe he was drifting heelside. Dunno. Anyway, these things never go well. His board slipped totally out from underneath him. Because it was a short box, he missed the box, but he did an absolutely perfect all-points landing, with face, chest, hips, knees, and board all hitting the snow at the same time.
He got up. No noobs were hurt in the production of this post. Well, not injured anyway.
Hey, I can sympathize. Last season I pulled off a perfect cab-taco while trying a box. That's where you fold over the box facing up instead of down.
Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
