    Well said. Wonderful change from the usual spinning/hucking/straight running chutes dreck that makes up most of the ski/board film genre. Thoughtful.

    " I glide into what should’ve been a very aggressive ski cut and instead I coasted in there. If you look at that very last moment, there’s a small slab that’s right in my horizontal trajectory. I should’ve stepped up, I should’ve fought elevation with everything I had to be as high as I possible could be in order to cut in a reasonable way. As I came level with that rock I thought on it’s fine I’ll just go below it. And that was a critical mistake."
    Cutting a slope is a pretty safe way to release a buildup ?
    Patrollers do that often.
    But note that anticipated turns are very gentle on a loaded slope and when leading a conventional skier into an iffy area one must take their possibly rough style into account. :)
