I know lots of this has to do with my skill level as this is only my second season riding. None the less, people that do set-back a little further how much do you normally do? Tomorrow is a pow day for me so I want to do some tweaking tonight to be ready! Thanks guys and gals!
Set it all the way back. It will feel more surfy and unstable at seed for sure, but much easier in the deep.
What angles you ride with? I trend to mellow out those too on pow days. I found that +18 + 9 works great to load your quad and calf without straining your back knee too much.
