T Rice Chatter Help

I would say I'm more of an intermediate rider. I'm out in Snowmass right now and just got done with my first day.

I'm 5'11", 195 lbs and have a 157 T Rice. I've noticed I get a lot of chatter when going down steeps, mostly on my heel side. Is this normal or is there something I'm doing wrong while carving?

Would a Never Summer Heritage be better for steeps at higher speed, not having as much chatter and being damper?

Thanks

Are you sure its chatter and not slipping? Are you on ice?

Chatter is caused by a lack of pressure management. Most likely this has to do with a rider's alignments not with the board being ridden. being broken at the waist, not actively moving through the turn, being misaligned to the front foot, leaning to much, etc.... can be causes.

I would start making sure you are progressing through your turn first, and not becomeing fixated down the hill. Next I would try and feel If I was prgressively tilting my board and flexing or extending through the turn. Think like ratching the binding. Is my board picking up from the snow a click at a time? All at once? Does it stop when I could still tilt it up while I am still trying to turn?

For further assitance try let us know when in your turn the chatter happens. Is it early in the beginning? in the middle at the end? Does it happen between the feet, closer to the tail or maybe closer to the nose? Any other details would be useful.

Maybe it's more slipping than chatter. When I'm traveling down a steep and I engage in my heel turn th board will start to skid down the hill. I'm trying to make my turn sharper, perpendicular to the slope. I don't know if I get my legs too far extended or what.
