Default Advice on proper posture

Let me see how to explain this the best.

When going down the run, my right (uphill) quad right above my knee, burns and/or cramps like there is no tomorrow. I do 1 of 2 things when that happens: Stand up straight, which is not condusive to keeping the front from submarining; or I pull off to the side and have to sit down for about 30 seconds.

What I think I'm doing wrong has something to do with the amount of pressure I put on my back leg to prevent submarining. I'm at a loss here with what to do. Any and all suggestions are welcomed. Thanks.

sounds like you're leaning back too much? lean forward, you want to be centered over your board

Since he's talking about submarining I would guess he's talking about riding powder, Try changing your highback lean, Stance width and stance angles. I played around with a ton of different setups and on a few of them I had that same problem, just changed up the settings till it went away.

If you're riding powder, try moving your bindings back (toward the tail) a bit.

I am talking about powder but next year I'll be on a lot more packed down snow. The more I think about it, when I'm on packed resort slopes, I'm leaning more centered and it doesn't hurt as much. Then I get to the problem of handling my speed (I know how to work on that).

What do you mean by "highback lean"?

Regarding my stance. I'll admit it is probably a tad narrow but I tried my buddy's board, it is maybe a few inches wider than mine and it just didn't jive.

the forward lean on the highback, If you don't know what it is than you probably haven't touched it. But if you try adjusting that a bit it might help. I know mine actually got screwed up and one was more forward than the other and my back knee was in terrible pain till I adjusted them back to what I use to ride. That's the only thing I've disliked about the rome arsenals the damn high back adjustments get loose and just change randomly.

I know what you mean by the high back. I have them all the way back. I tried them one slot forward and I could keep from falling.
