Ime...5" aint no pow...whether it be fluff or cream cheese. Thus does not necessitate being in the backseat, you should feel the bottom and you can be on the nose and slash the shit out of 5" with your edges. Btw if ur riding straight down the hill...whether pow or no pow, there are no edges to catch.
Op, Glad you had fun.
pretty much. real pow starts at at least 9"+ in my opinion. thats the difference between a pow day and just fresh snow
If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.
You gotta get off green circles on a fresh snow/powder day... The snow slows you down, so gotta hit steeper runs to keep the same speed as you would on a groomer day. Open it up and have fun. Falling doesn't hurt, and there's no ice to slip on.
As others have said, put most of your weight on your back foot. If you've ever wakeboarded, that's more the stance you want in powder. I love powder days cause I go way bigger of jumps than I usually would. Soft landings are great!
