With canted footbeds, the options are there for you to find what's most comfortable for you. There is no specific use for the levels of canting. Find what is comfortable for you. This will mean that you are going to have to bring your tools and footbeds to the mountain and spend a day trying different combos to find the most comfortable.

Whatever you want to do, do it! I set mine up with more cant on the back foot, forcing me (in my mind at least) to keep the proper stance = more weight on the front foot. I'm gonna play with it next time I go riding. It finally started snowing here but stupid work gets in the way many times.

I have it setup like this: I ride regular with 20 and -10 or something like that.
Left binding: 0 in the rear part, and 2.0 in the front. Rear is full 3.5 front and back.

the only problem is i can't spend a day in the mountain because i go only for a week, and with a 4 - 6 ppl group + tutor, so i can't do it that way,

but i can still put it on the carpet?

Yea, that's your best option then. It's a good idea to start out in this manner either way.

What?

You unscrew 1 screw (Phillips). Tools are always available. Then you pull out the front and the back and put in differnt pads. The entire process takes 5 minutes.

You always have time for that at the beginning of a day. Someone will take a backpack on the mountain just throw them in there or take a backpack for 1 day.
