I always see people doing the powder turns where you get on one side of the sled and turn it really sharp. I was wondering how this is done... is there any special technique to it? I have always wanted to try it but i dont wanna break anything on my sled............. whats the worst that can happen just roll over my sled?

Put both feet on one running board, lean to the same side and turn that way, then let your outside leg drag the snow a bit and open her up.
Fall off a few times, won't hurt a anything.

Just have fun trying.

you wanna turn the skis the opposite direction you intend to go while countering with your weight and feet on the running board on the side you intend to turn toward. If you turn the skis as though you are trail riding (the direction you want the sled to turn) you will learn quckly that you have a problem with your technique!

(you see some nice powder and want to carve left, put both feet on the left board and lean left while turning the bars to the right) Good Luck! and where are you finding all this powder?

You don't have to have both feet on one side of your running board, you can just go about 15-20 and lean your whole body hard to one side, pin it and hang on. but i would start with both feet on one side first until you get used to it.

it depends on the sled. on my attak i stand with both feet on one side and it goes wherever i want it. on my viper i need to tug it over real hard and hang one leg wayyy off the side.

ummm, reread it. my heaviest sled is the easiest one to carve. my lighest is my 03 pro x, which is easier than the viper, but harder than the attak. there goes your idea.

i've got a better idea, my arctic cat probably carves better than all of your sleds :smilielol: just messing
