    There's this Russian movie of a softbooter totally outcarving his buddies on hardboots. Not completely Extreme Carving, but just 10cm off the snow. Anyone still knows where to find that one?

    Thumbs down Ironboarding

    Watching most of these videos you can see that they are all riding bulldozed and perfect slopes going straight down the fall line. No drops or banks. Would be interesting to see these kind of riding where you had to adapt to the terrain. The last clip looks like some kinda ballet or something. Don't get me wrong - armpit in the snow now and then is cool. But the same turns over and over on a artificial slope is not very creative. Extreme boring maybe, but not extreme riding.

    I would not considere this as buldozed and perfect slope atleast. This is already linked above with name Off road
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=gBJYOQu9v08

    Plus there is lot of similar clips on quite bumby slopes when there was lack of snow in Barthemelowe. So surface does not matter so much, i even seen guys to pick surface changes to have more fun when making carves.

    Only area where laying in snow is hard is when there are pails of loose snow, like in that Off road section or moguls and there rider needs to take care when laying down.

    Hey Pokkis, Itīs about the slopes. Like Oppdal for instance - just straight down. No drops or anything that dictates the way you need to go.

    Oppdal, did you missed Hovden or Stölen, both plenty of different stuff.
    But i prefer film on straight slopes due it is much easier to keep rider in camera

    EDIT I agree that Vanglia at Oppdal is like Buttermilk like place, open flats without any steep sections. Zinal is same but with some steeps.

    Upper part of Vanglia has a nice pitch but itīs just straight down the falline. Tiehack side of Buttermilk is not what I really call steep but itīs technically challenging if you wanna ride it with style. You canīt just turn wherever you want. I think itīs about the way see the mountain. You can just trash the slope or you can ride the mountain using it like a skatepark hitting banks and surf it.

    Nice Turns! Love the way you guys ride! The riding is so smooth and shot from an angle that it makes it easy to see the technique.

    BTW That's on of the first videos I think I've seen where I noticed a rider looking uphill between his turns to check that he wasn't going to get smoked by a straight liner.

    Keep 'em coming.

    Yes, you are right. It is main rule on the slope : always look uphill ! Because usually we ride with a lot of numbers of liners, everybody wonna kill you))

    That is a fun video! Thanks for posting it.

    I'm going to try to steal the technique of panning with a carver as they pass close to the camera, it has a nice effect!
