I am thinking that, because the snow is compressible, that the tip can dig in further even as the tail retains its path and pressure. Perhaps this is not possible.
If it's not, I need to understand how it is that I leave clean arcs in the snow while I am actively applying rotary pressure with my quads/femur rotation. How do you think this is possible if not in the way that I think it is? Am I doing something that I don't know I'm doing? If so, what is it?
...and yes, these are honest questions. I do not know the answer.
