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?
When you get stuck, you think it is only knee deep powder, but it becomes waist deep when you step out of bindings. This is the kind of powder you want to avoid to get stuck in. I sometimes set my bindings back and it helps.

Toecutter - it was bizarre. We waterski in the summers and it felt alot like that so when you commented about it being like surfing - I would gather that's the same feeling. I'm so used to feeling the ground while I've been learning, it was weird boarding and not feeling any ground beneath me - well, until I hit the groomed section! lol

I'm not going to lie.. the way I learned how to ride the pow... was by flying off a lip into 2 feet of the stuff.. and yeah it's weird for me... it feels like my board turns into a boat or a surfboard and I steer more with my back foot... call me bad form or call it not doing it right..

I'm not sure, but I'm not changing it's fun as shit... nothing like feeling like you are surfing on a semi solid surface

I wanted a sig, but I need a job first.

Vicki,

That was amazing!!! I've never waterski, so I would never know. But I surfed once, maybe that would be weird. I just hope it's not going to throw me off!!
