Default Binding Angles

I ride a LTD 163 wide board and I ride regular. I generally spend most of my time in powder and weaving through the trees.
Right now I've got my bindings set a +30/0 just because, and I was wondering what kind of angles I should be using. I figured being angled forwards was good for speed, but I also need a lot of control so I don't end up becoming one with nature if you know what I mean.
Any suggestions for binding angles for powder and trees?

Its all preference. personally i ride 15, -15. if you ever want to ride switch (a skill that is a huge advantage) you will want to start riding a duck stance of some kind.

actually a 0 degree back foot is not commonly recommended anymore, but it isn't wrong either.

Would a +30/-15 be too extreme? Is there some kind of suggested angle between the two? most of the one's I've seen were 30 degrees between the two.

I ride 9,-9. It's all preference. Just change up the angles and play with it until you find one that is comfortable for you.

Try turning that front binding in too see if you like it. 30 seems a bit extreme

Duck works pretty good for me as well I ride 15, -15 as well and it does help me when I have been working on my switch.
