Hey thanks Snowolf.
Oops, didn't really think about what I was asking with the carving on steeps
Is the term "cross under" used in your lingo? The reason I ask, and one of the underlying reasons for the whole thread, is that I've seen some good "riding" instruction in dvd called Go Snowboard. It covers the foot steering approach, and in my opinion has some excellent exercises/drills for learning to carve...
Toward the end, they move onto the "cross under technique", which they advise for use on steep slopes, to control the riders speed. The board crosses under the riders body. You kinda need to see it, a text description won't work well, but the rider kind of dynamically pops to change to the next edge, and before the pop, they've carved the board around to a slight uphill direction.
(bad explanation, sorry)
I've tried the technique, and found it really hard.
In the video, I wouldn't say the terrain they're showing it on is that steep...
So what my question should have been, rather than asking to see someone carve on steep terrain, is:
- I'd like to see someone ride steep terrain with the correct technique -
You referred to "dynamic skidded terms" - I'd like to get better at that
thanks again for the input,
