Just an additional variable to throw into the fire is the question of how much fresh snow is on the ground. At one extreme you have the polished hardpack which is extremely squirrely, at the other extreme you're trying to "flatbase" through a foot of powder (beyond that even the quotes don't work). I think that a certain amount of fresh on top of the hardpack dampens the squirreliness and helps keep the board aligned with the direction of travel.

So now you all have to start all over, taking this into consideration.

I know you think you thought you knew what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you understood what you thought I meant.
