Setting: I'm negotiating sustained 40 degree terrain in tight trees. (thanks for all your help a while back). I stop in the middle of the face. Now I'm rested and want to go on. I put weight on my downhill leg untill it starts swinging around to point downhill (man that's tiring), and I realize that for some reason I'm in a wedge. For some other reason I stay in the wedge untill I complete the turn, after that I have enough speed to ski like a human being. That stinks! What I would like to do is launch myself out of the snow and swing around in the air to point my skis down the hill, but every time I tried to do that I ended up in a tumble. Please hook me up with some pointers.
