Default WTF does _______ mean?

There's a LOT of snowboarding terms I dont know. If there was a thread where I could go to type in "what does der der der mean" and get a helpful response that would be awesome. I bet there's some other noobs out there that this would help too. Here are my biggest ones.

Snowboarding terms I don't know.

Corn - Spring corn? I've heard this thrown around these forums and I have no idea what this is. What is this?

Corduroy - Not a fucking clue. Is this when the groomers drive over the snow and leave those straight marks so it looks like white corduroy?

Crud - Again no idea, I ride in the midwest so the only snow condition I encounter regularly is ice.

Any help here is appreciated.

corduroy is used to describe freshly groomed snow (because the grooves make it look like the fabric)

Crud is chewed up snow, whether that's just chewed up groomer or powder. Out west the groomers are typically softer so it will get sluffed into piles which makes it bumpier and more inconsistent to ride.

Corn snow does refer to springtime conditions, basically when the snow takes on a granular form

so is man-made considered corn???
Hell that's all we had to ride on this year was man-made

Frozen don't feel bad I don't know many terms either. I had no clue what regular or goofy was till I 1st strapped on a board.
Still no idea what "Steez" means but when someone does a cool trick I hear it so I figure its a compliment

Freshies = Fresh powder. Or a hot new pair of shoes depending on your gender.

Example: "Did you catch any Freshies today? Brosif."

Or if your of the Female Gender : "Damn girl. Those are some Freshies"

Depends on the time of the year.

Penguin walking is when you basically walk strapped in by bouncing of your nose and tail. There is a ton of different names though. Crypt walking, duck walking, etc.
