I just spent 5 days in Salt Lake City - Alta, Snowbasin, Solitude, Deer Valley, and Alta again. On Saturday at Snowbasin we had near blizzard conditions (Yahoo!) and about a foot of powder. I've only skied in powder about 3 times and I had watched a video before we left to review the technique (Lito tejada Flores). I felt like I got the turns going O.K., even included the alternate "arm lift" but I couldn't stop! I felt like if I tried a hockey stop I'd end up flying over my skis because of the deep powder. How do you stop? It was GREAT by the way!
