stillz I could be mistaken, but I think cross over/under just refers to how you unweight for the edge change. Therefore, cross under turns can be huge GS carves if you want them to be. Cross under means unweighting by quickly flexing the legs to a low position. At speed, it will feel like the board snaps aggressively under the body from one carve to the next. It's a pretty cool feeling. You can then create extra pressure through the turn with a progressive extension of the legs.

CassMT tree and mogul riding are going to be dictated by the placement of the trees, and the moguls..and of course there you gotta do what you gotta do. totally nother topic to what i said. don't be offended, like i said, just one aesthetic opinion

Do you bust out gs carves on moguls or tight trees?

If you want to ride moguls or trees in any sort of reasonable fashion, cross-under turns are virtually a must.

baldylox To OP: Your carves look great to me. A video would be most helpful to give you tips. The next step is to work on controlling speed using turn shape.

baldylox It's not unusual to get a little or a lot of air between turns depending on how much you load the tail at the end of your carve.

camber board?

cloud Thanks for all the comments and advices~


cross-under turns... I've tried them, not sure how well I can do them but I'll try them and take a look back at the lines next time.

that was prob the best condition of the season with the freshly groomed powder

fun? of course! always~ (even though I'm at vertically challenged province)
that picture is pretty much the whole hill, it really takes only 10~15 seconds to get down so I normally don't have enough motivation to work on carving... condition was right so I wanted to see how I'm doing.
I can round it out but then the turns become bigger (bigger radius)... if I try to round it out on shorter turns, it becomes carvysliding-ish turns... maybe that's where I need cross-under turns? @.@

I actually got a knee down the other day!!!
full turns at speed is fun.
