Great thoughts cvj.... when you "earn " your turns you definitely want to make the most of it!! And yes, there is a backcountry ski etiquette that is followed by those of us who RESPECT the code AND our fellow skiers. Chewing up virgin slopes in a disrespectful manner is not part of the CODE.
Once again, you are defining what and why and how people should do things. When you earn your turns you want to make the most of it. Whose to say what me making the most of my backcountry experience is? FYI - I'm not good enough to huck, or straightline 50 degree couloirs, I put in evenly spaced turns down the fall line, not all over the place. But if I want to open it up on the apron down low, and I hiked to earn those turns, well, I'm sure as hell going to open it up on the apron down low. I'm well aware of the fact the backcountry is getting more crowded. I'm also annoyed by people that traverse all over the slope and ruin the whole aspect for everybody else. But I'm also not interested in having the exact same experience down the slope as every other person who skis it. I RESPECT the CODE. I also respect other people's freedom in the wilderness. Maybe you should open it up a little and match the first turns made down the hill, instead of complaining that they aren't your exact turns. Or better yet, put on a head lamp, skin in the dark, and drop first tracks at sunrise. I'll admire your commitment, and be stoked for the great run you just had.
Remember, I might have been out there when stability was different than when you were out there. Some sections I might want to get through really quickly.
It's bad enough when people tell you how to turn riding lifts. But telling me how to turn in the backcountry (and I'm not talking about traversing the whole aspect up, I'm talking about some fast rooster tail GS turns), you've got to be kidding me.
