from my limited experience , im in the staying on your edge concept.

you can of course flatbase it, but if the conditions are bad or choppy it takes very little for your board to catch some snow on top and just dig in...i never like to take that risk...personally i only flatbase when i am going extremely slow and just trying to make it pass a very long flat.

usually i try to keep sllight pressure on one of my edges, if i feel the board turning i go on the opposite edge...its basically going straight down and switching from edge to edge...i don't care if it scrubs off speed because it definitely allows me to feel a lot more in control than flatbasing it...and thats what i care about the most.
