You know... I had seen this video a while ago, ran into it again today... and i think here's a couple perfect examples of pure Cross-over turns. He still does some cross-unders and some mixed... but i think this illustrates pretty well the distinction i was trying to make yesterday:

Awesome carving there.

Edit> oh and for relevance: note how he shaves speed near the end of each turn by applying force to the rear and going a bit upslope.

yup this is cross over. my point was that it's too confusing what cross over and under really is. cross over = legs extend at the start of a new turn; cross under = legs flex at the start of a new turn and then extend during the shaping of the turn. not that that explanation is much easier. in this video he is clearly extending his legs to start a new turn so he's doing cross over turns. i like how his board pops off the snow and how he lands on a new edge.

and great, great point about how he uses the slope to slow down by going a bit uphill. most new riders don't even come close to doing this. great video...thanks for sharing.
