Question Snowprofessor.com?

How would you guys rate the vids on snowprofessor?

I'm curious if the advice they are giving is sound?

Btw- I've watched snowolfs vids- they were awesome as well

Thanks. That's what I wanted to know. I'm still trying to make sense of it all.

Personally I find the over-the-top pedagogy slightly nauseating, the riding advice is spot on however.

Looks pretty good to me although I agree some parts are a tad cheesey.

Their advice is really good, especially for rails. One thing I don't agree with them on carving though is they say when going toe side imagine that a grape is under your big toe and the goal is not to smash the grape. I think you gotta put alot of pressure on your toes when carving.

You won't get any guff from me on the chessyness factor.

I just make sure I don't fast forward through any important parts. Lol
