“Traversing on a snowboard is tricky, it can easily ruin your day and it can also bring you you to exposed situation which can be dangerous . I go through some of my tips and tricks for making traversing on a snowboarder easier so that with the right gear, technique and line choices you will be able to increase your range of action and all of that with a good safety feeling.”
Another excellent high level snowboarding instructional from one of the premier big mountain shredders on the planet, Xavier de Le Rue. If you’re a snowboarder who mostly rides with skiers you will want to pay extra attention as these techniques will help you keep up with your two planking buddies. Keep slope angles front of mind, keep your board tuned, and maybe invest in some lightweight poles. Hopefully these tips and tricks will keep your legs fresher after a long traverse and lead to more enjoyable days on the hill. Thanks Xavier!
