@BCjohnny, I think that the McNab thing is a good starting point especially for people who have been given contradictory instruction. I would be interested to know in what way you 'don't get it'.

@sharon1953, If I remember correctly you use skibikes. Anything to do with how you sit on them all day. Posture etc.

@Dr John, Not just for neoprene. I use it for all sorts of fabric repairs, especially gloves. Mcnett seam sealant is just that. It is a sealant and in my experience does not work well as an adhesive. Aquasure takes 12 hours to go off so I often use UHU to join seams together (10 minute contact) and then Aquasure to cover the seam. Which reminds I need to do just this on Mrs cad's gloves.

@Badbobby, The nursery slopes in Schladming are really over on Hochwurzen. For convenience you would need to stay over that side which is then not convenient for Schladming town. The slopes down into Schladming itself are reds/blacks.

@Grizzler, For a clear explanation of what you should be doing get hold of a copy of Go Snowboard by Neil Mcnab. Might have to be second hand. My take is that your stance should be centered but the pressure that you apply to the front foot will vary throughout the turn. It is not one thing or the other. Note that I said pressure not weight. Read Go Snowboard and all will be revealed.

Are you able to get to a snowdome at a quiet time? Consistent gradient and lack of camber would allow you to get back to the fundamentals. Good luck.

@sharon1953, We have been snowboarding boot deep fresh every morning this week in Schladming. At least 0.5 m more up top than similar time other years. Oh I tell a lie it was knee deep yesterday. Enjoy looking forward to your long awaited trip.

@Tiesto, Use a decent editor. Makes the editing process much less tiresome. I am having great success with Adobe Premiere Elements. Really easy to merge output from two or more head cameras if they have been synchronised with a clapper point.

@fredbob, Let us know how you get on. Do not be afraid to play around with your settings. Try different stance width, angles and highbacks forward lean. Jot them down as you change them so you can track the changes. When you are happy write it down somewhere safe so it becomes your baseline for future trips. Maybe buy a bullet tool so you can change your bindings where you like rather than at a lift station. You should also rotate the highbacks so that they are parallel to the heel edge even though the binding is at an angle to the board.

@fredbob, Definitely you need forward lean on your highjacks. Try setting them so they are 70 degrees from the horizontal I.e a forward lean of 20 degrees from the vertical. That's what I set mine to when I started out some years ago.

They used to piste during the day in Schladming. Riding down behind a basher as it laid down fresh corduroy was amazing. No more daytime pisteing now though.

@fredbob, For a toe turn your body should be over the board but that does not mean your legs are straight. At the start of the turn you apply pressure to the toe edge with your front leg by bending your leg at the knee and driving the knee over your toe. You will feel pressure on your shins when you do this. Do not try and apply pressure just by using your toes. A toe side carve with a bit of speed on is just sublime. Have a look at some Ryan Knapton videos on YouTube. You will see exactly what you need to aim at . Google Knapton how to really really carve

@fredbob, Not sure I like your description of 'push my belly out'. You need to apply pressure to the toe edge through your shins pushing onto your boots. Your body should be stacked over the board. Also try not to traverse between turns. When one turn finishes start the next one. Then you will find that the board is still flexed at the end of the turn and it will spring you into the next one.

@fredbob, Get a copy of Go Snowboard by Neil Mcnab. Everything you need to start you off on foot steering. Includes a DVD. Looks out of print but worth getting a second hand copy. Try here http://www.waterstonesmarketplace.com/search/books/isbn/9781405315746?invid=13482426396&qrating=3&isbn=9781405315746&mtype=B&qsort=&page=1
