I agree with etm and TT. I flatbase alot here. It takes practice and alot of riding flat to get used to it. Its a lot faster on flats and cat tracks. Its faster on a soft surface. On chucky wet snow am edge is alot smoother and faster than flat base. I was riding with a few instructors earlier this season and they were shocked how comfortable and fast I was on a flat base, they couldn't or didnt like doing it. I can ride full speed flat base also.

Making blanket statements either way is retarded but I think eastside is the only one that made aa blanket statement with regards to one form of riding over the other.
