the main difference is that you learn to truly unweight on turns. While this is an important technique, equally important is knowing every ounce of pressure between "weight" and "unweight" which is not very internetty in terms of explanation vs experience vs conditions.

Watch the recent vid on BA's site with JJ and Xavier. Those guys are using super basic technique on most of the slope. This is because it is almost vertical and also lifethreatening ("no fall"). Its the same shit, but they are sponsored by $$$$drink$$$ and themselves and all the badass shit.
