Freeriding is all about enjoying the mountain in any conditions but best of all… it's is all about the powder! Powder
Something that catches a lot of people out in powder and other off piste conditions is knowing how to deal with steering and the pressure that builds up against the skis to create a firm platform at the end of a turn.
When you make your normal turns on piste you are usually quite familiar with how pressure builds up as to go through the turn, usually with the pressure increasing towards the end part.
You normally get to a stage in the last half of the turn on piste where you try to be skilful with your pressure control, leaning, steering and end up with a strong platform to push off from to help to move into the next turn and your new direction.
