However reality, at least at baker, the snow, conditions and the terrain often changes from day to day if not from hour to hour. Thus, on one hand its what ever gets you down the hill form. Alot of good riders around here, "is the real world"...hold on/hang on for as long or big as possible...yea maybe bad form but fun. Though folks like Temple (vid below) have great flowing form because of lots of power and great line selection.
