I think its whatever works for you in this case. I also dont agree with the 50/50 weighting. I think its a bad habit in fact and if you ever had to skate down steeper exit ramps putting 50 on your back foot without a stomp pad could risk you slipping. Most of your control should be in the foot that is strapped in cos thats the only one you can rely on for serious edge control. If you are only going to make ONE turn on exit, then moving your toe or heel of the unstrapped foot over the edge helps. You will however be in a quandry if you need to make both toe AND heel side turns on exit (i.e. to avoid a fallen person in the unloading area then turning to you desired direction). I agree with putting back foot closer to front foot to weight the nose and keep your strength and focus concentrated. Lots of this back foot 50/50 edge dangling stuff comes from an over dependency on resting it against the back binding, which is also a very unhealthy crutch IMHO. Ideally your back foot should be passenger and you learn to steer only with your front foot. Skating practice is the only way to go. Stop some distance from the lift and skate there for practise. Skate for fun when waiting for your buddies etc. But hey, most impt thing to me is dont fall down. I may be in the chair behind you and you could be holding me up. Cheers.
