carving (in snow, not a pumpkin)

Since i’ve gone over most of what a beginner would need to know, here comes the intermediate stuff. (Don’t attempt to carve until you are comfortable with both your heel side and toe side turns.)

What is carving you ask? Watch this video from expert village if you’d like an idea of what it looks like, then click this link (compliments of eHow) to get more detailed instructions.
