ARSENALFAN Awesome! You must have gotten a discount for more than 1 night in the "white room."

Yeah, I've never specifically tried to do it. Just been riding deeper powder aggressively, turned quickly, briefly, to scrub off speed and had a face full!

I still remember the first time I understood what people meant when they said "white room" I was like "ahhhhhhhhhh.....I get it now"


it also helps to be under five foot tall. Less pow required!

dreampow

A few face shots for you here.

dreampow Come to Japan, guaranteed face shots.

As Grafta said you need to kind of slash hard and fast and then straighten up and ride through the cloud you just created rather than keep turning off to the side which takes you away from your cloud.

The pow was light and perfect but I couldn't work out if I needed more speed, different angle, if i should kick my rear foot out, if i should lift the nose up first, all of these!?

Can anyone break this down for me please?
