Yeah exactly... They just tend to hunt around when flat unless you're absolutely flying. I still try to stay on one edge or the other when on a cat track or at the bottom of a slope. If I wanted to go straight I would have bought skis!!!

Goes away though once you're in a couple inches of fresh or more. Can flatbase all day in powder! Although that would get boring too...
