My other problem was that sometimes it seemed like my tips would occasionally angle down into the powder and eject me leading to some sweet frontflips. The only way I could find to stop this from happening was to push up with my toes to try and keep my tips elevated. This worked to keep my tips from divebombing, but usually resulted in me sitting way back where I found it a lot harder to control my skis and occasionally ended up in sitting too far back and losing balance again. My question is is this something that I just need to practice and adjust to, or is there something completely different I should be trying? I appreciate any advice.
Another problem I had was a couple times when I hit the untracked slopes early there was kind of a layer of harder snow on top (crust, right?) that made it near impossible to turn.. Only way I got around that was going slow and doing some jumping and turning to stay in control. Is there any good way to handle snow like that?
If it helps I was skiing K2 PEs. Again, I really appreciate any advice you guys can give me. Thanks!
