Ime...5" aint no pow...whether it be fluff or cream cheese. Thus does not necessitate being in the backseat, you should feel the bottom and you can be on the nose and slash the shit out of 5" with your edges. Btw if ur riding straight down the hill...whether pow or no pow, there are no edges to catch.
Op, Glad you had fun.
pretty much. real pow starts at at least 9"+ in my opinion. thats the difference between a pow day and just fresh snow
