Hallo Wintergold,

Bei so weichen Schnee fühle ich mich nicht wohl und verkrampfe immer :)

Naja Sommer Training Training Training....

Nice!!! As a first season beginner, this is exactly the style of carving that I hope to learn. Is this style the same that is sometimes referred to as bomber style? (Forgive my ignorance on this part, there is way too much for me to learn at this point: terminology, technique, etc) Are there good classes or clinics in Europe (close to Norway?) that teach this? The board that I'm learning on is a standard Silberpfeil 169 and my bindings are at 65/60, is this an appropriate board for this technique? Thanks for any help!

I think you have asked a very good question that is not always easily understood by new riders. Below is a link that has a few very good animations that might help you to understand or see the difference between the two main hardboot alpine riding techniques.

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=5740&p=55354&hilit=cern#p55354

I would suggest that you look closely at the upper body for more insight:

-Race, French, Bomber are names that are often used for a static upper body
-Surf, Swiss, EC, Pureboarding are names that are often used for a rotating upper body

Snowboarding is snowboarding, carving is carving ... find the technique, equipment and style that works best for you and enjoy the fun!

Hope this helps
Rob

Thanks! That does help and the "French" turning type seems a lot like what I've been doing (if I understand the animation correctly). Basically my upper body is aligned with the fall line and the board moves around under me and I turn the board by driving my hips into the slope.

The rotation technique is what everybody is talking about when referring to "+" backside and "-" front side, right and the turn is initiated by rotating the upper body into the new turn? On my Silberpfeil I've got a 65/60 stance to avoid boot-out does this become a problem if I want to try the rotational style?
