|Joe77||Thanks. So there's not a lot that could have been done except go steeper and faster. And it's good to know that it was less me but the conditions.|

|herjazz||for spring i switch to a warm temp wax, although the slush will rip off that wax pretty quickly :/ there's not much you can do on slush, i can't get the speed that i want even on steep blacks... that's why normally i hit the park in springtime. slush makes for softer falls if you fall, haha...|

|Lamps||You'll only get so much edge hold in slushy corn snow, if you want a clean line you'll need to go faster/more downhill.|

Carving in springtime?
It's springtime and brown skid marks are starting to show on some parts of the the hills. Yesterday on a steep blue run i had a hard time holding an edge when going across the hill between turns. The edge digs well more than usual but it will still slip on me.
From the lifts looking down my transitions were the ones carving clean and sharp about 3 inches wide but surprisingly the downwards and across the hill between transitions looked messy. Straight carve edge hold between turns are the ones i usually don't have issues with.
Is there a method to get better edge hold in this condition? It was soft pack and slightly slushy by noon at 61 degrees spring weather.
