Thanks Snowolf. I'm thought powder is great because it's more forgiving for newbies, i didn't know it's going to require some whole new technique! I'm still going to stay along the groomers, but maybe taste a little bit and see what it feels like. I remember the first day I snowboarded, I couldn't control where I go and went onto the side and fell into powder, couldn't dig myself out!
So, even on the groomers, it'll be powdery enough that I need to weight more on my rear foot? even to initiate my toeside turn I do that?
