Default powder skiing

the tendency is to ski backseat in the powder so that your tips saty afloat. this is myth, my friend. on the contrary, the idea is to keep centered, if not a little forward. if you go too far forward though, you might nose dive and eat it (crash). use narrow skis for more style and its easier to get up once u fall. refer to the cliff jump thread if ur also into that.

but of course fat skis are going to help you float and keep you from being bogged down by the gnar

hell yeah, fat skis all the way.
but don't lean back, that is the worse thing you can do, you lose all control.
