I think on heelside, the tendency is to sit too low and for too long....thus resulting in not being able to get out of the backseat fast enough and the board ends up being too transverse. Its natural to do this...partly due to fear of speed, fear of ice...hearing the chatter...but by that time its too late and we wash out on our ass.
So I've try to remedy this by being more anticipatory....by seeing and anticipating the ice and trying to keep my leading shoulder pointed down the fall line, the nose within 45 degrees of the fall line,...while sucking up the rear foot/tail...that is...trying to stay more in the front seat....and lighten up my feet....kind of floating over the ice and aiming for a patch in which to get an edge in or use terrain in which to bank a turn off to help the lack of edge.
