Hi, I've been snowboarding for the past maybe 7 years, only the last 2 with commitment, but a week or so ago I went to Le Massif in Quebec and found out I have no idea how to ride well in pow/ close tree conditions. I was stopping and starting ever few meters cause either I would dig my front end of my board in and flip, or have really close trees that I had to slow down for.
Do you guys have any tips for the noob powder rider?
Other than a powder board, and the great suggestions here...set your bindings all the way back on your board. Both at the last set of holes toward the tail. Wax and scrape abundantly. Enjoy your surf-board.
