I know there's a ton of articles and videos about skiing powder and chopped up powder, but I want to ask about it in a detailed manner.
So I just got back from a pow day and the front of my thighs are sore, to which the remedy is "don't lean so far back." But don't you HAVE to lean back to some degree to get some float out of your skis, especially when the pow gets chopped up? I read about the whole bouncing up and down technique to keep your weight balanced and float better...which seems to work in untracked pow but not when you are skiing through chop. I feel like you have to sit a bit back seat just to keep your tips up and absorb going from fresh pow to tracked out stuff and back.
I was on sick day 110s but i feel like even on a ski like that if you just drive forward you are still going to bury the tips.
