This has been mentioned at least a few times in the forum and I think I understand what it is all about. I don't have any problems agreeing with that.

But do we have to examine the snow trails to see if a thin line was really left behind, before we define a ride as "carving" or just some linked turns? Or can we already tell by the body form and from the shear speed at which someone is allegedly "carving"?
