Know what you mean though, went off a sidehit jump on a curve into a trail merge not realizing that where I was landing was now a mogul field (was moving at a pretty good clip too) and managed to maintained myself for a bit but was still going way too fast. Caught the heel edge on the next mogul and backflipped for a while downhill.

Good day though after getting the 16". Almost forgot what that was like after last year. Hear northern Vermont was pounded.

I was in Vermont riding the day of when we got 2 feet at Stratton, it was EPIC. The back side of the mountain runs were untouched cause they shut the gondola down. But yes in the afternoon a few steeper trails were horrible with bumps. I keep to the sides of the run to get any fresh POW that was left.

I have learned you want to do more a dynamic of a turn with just pushing and pulling ur tail in and out compared to how you would normally take a turn when riding bumps....
