Yeah, TONS of snow and some of the early runs didn't seem that steep. Possibly in the 30-35 degree range which is really fun in chute terms. 45 deg+ is where it starts to feel like mountain climbing instead of boarding!

The 1:30-1:50 stuff just takes practice. Get out on powder days on open pistes and work really hard on short quick carves. No need to learn that with cliffs and rocks nearby!

Cool video though, this is one of those cases where the pole mount really helps what they're trying to show...
