Jump and you have just up-unweighted.

Squat real fast and you have just down-unweighted. If you do this fast enough, your feet would even come off the ground...which I guess would be called something like 100% down unwieghting or something.

Skidded turns leave a swath of mashed snow. Carved runs leaves pencil thin trenches, as in this photo, which were made by half a dozen carvers over the course of a morning. 'Tis a thing of beauty, isn't it?
