This is why I like to ride steeper terrain. On steep terrain it is much easier to get up, but this year there has been a lot of meadow skipping. The way I normally get up if I have had to unstrap and hike a little bit is almost create a shelf with the snow. This allows me to be hirer than I am of being up to my waist. You will not though be on top of the snow. This again is where the pitch of the mountain makes it easier or more difficult. It is a tiring process to get going again on mellow terrain for sure.
