Default Carving

What is carving? How do you progress from turns or "S" to craving?

Carving is turning on the edge of your board - it leaves a thin line behind on the snow, as opposed to that skidded S shape.

The most important, and overlooked, aspect of carving is having enough speed to actually initiate the carve. A lot of people complain that they can't get up on an edge, when they're puttering along.

This is carving...

This is also a good video to show the difference. Intermediate turns involve some sliding, while carving in it's truest form has NO sliding.
