snowboard lesson 8 : The Falling Leaf Pattern

Now that you are at the top of a beginner slope, you are going to slowly slide back and forth across the hill like a "falling leaf," staying on your heelside edge the entire time.
To begin sliding, press down with the toes of your front foot.

To stop sliding, pull back up with the same foot. (Treat it like a gas pedal.) When you reach the edge of the run, stop and press down with the toes of the other foot to start sliding in the other direction. Again, pull up to stop. Continue to the other side of the run. Repeat this back and forth "falling leaf" pattern all the way to the bottom of the run.
