TIps when riding powder
 
I have been doing really well the last couple of days but it has dumped in Cervino and today i kept falling and getting stuck. Can you guys share some tips to help me increase my powder riding. Thanks

We barely got any snow here in the NE US, let alone the rest of the US and you want to talk about how to ride powder? Posts like these just get me fired up. Screw you and your powder riding. You want a tip? Don't eat yellow snow.

Why thank-you for you input...

What kind of board are you riding? Styles do vary a little bit between camber types. What happens prior to your fall?

put weight on back foot and haul ass. make slow arcing turns but not carving.

yep. you need your weight less forward than you would normally ride which will help keep that nose from submarining and getting you stuck. also, you may have an easier time riding steeper lines than you would normally ride. Also, don't stop. Keep moving.

Move your bindings back. I did this when I went heli skiing and it makes it much easier. Always look ahead for a flat spot. If you see one coming straight line it.
Also as said above ride steeps when it is like this. This is the best time to make big improvements. This is how I learnt to ride double black chutes. When there is a foot of fresh pow you can't go wrong.

I know when I first started riding pow, the biggest problem I had is after I shifted my weight back on my rear foot, I couldn't balance very well and was always falling. After practicing balancing tail presses at home and on groomers, I found pow to be easier, and orgasmic amounts of fun.

listen to the hook. turn less - go as fast as you can.

When riding deep...it needs to be steep and thus its more important to chose your lines wisely...avoiding terrain traps and etc. On the less angled stuff you got to be patient and wait for the carve to come...meaning you have to choose and look at what terrain will support that carve and will you have enough speed. Inorder to slash or explode face shots and white rooms you got to have enough speed to exit or get out of them otherwise you sink or fall over from lack centrifugal speed....so generally straight line bomb, haul ass and get maybe one or two turns in...but carry alot of speed.
