Go to Jay Peak. They have the best glades in the east ranging from easy to gnarly.
Go to the East Coast Meet at Jay Peak next year at the end of Feb and ride with people better than you. You'll will learn.
What makes glades on the east coast difficult is they they are far more moguled than in the west. Get your hop turns and mogul technique down and your tree riding will improve. Keep your body compressed and low and plan your turns so that you're setting your edge on the soft tops not the icy rutted backsides. When you get tired the tendency is for the front leg to lock up dead straight. Do back-squats and lunges and wall squats and box jumps to prep and you can hold that off longer. When your legs are smoked, stop and rest or pay the price with a broken femur as some people on this forum can attest. Tree > Femur.
Stay in the driver seat. Attack! Don't lean uphill.
