Lots of spray is the mark of a board that is no longer carving cleanly. 

Yes but not necessarily.  Look at your trench.  All the snow you've excavated has to go somewhere.

surprised you didn't go over the bars on that one

 

Surprised i managed it aswell 😄
I think the explanation is that i am twisting going from toeside to heelside because of not wanting to end up in the trees 😄
So much of the momentum is towards the camera and the nose is just scraping snow until the edge gets enough grip. 🤔
Also the hill goes from crest to quite steep so the pressure on the nose seems to be decreasing from pic 2 to 3. 🧐

To quote/paraphrase someone's signature here "Trenches don't lie". No real difference between us.
"Lots of spray" is subjective. Joerg Egli in a body dragging, edge grabbing, Pureboarding style turn is, for me, a good example of lots of spray and the turn not being cleanly carved. Example from around 3:25 to 3:40 in the video below, and the second turn clearly shows the squiggly "trench" left behind. Earlier in the video are lots of much more cleanly carved Pureboarding turns, short and with modest amounts of spray.

 

@Calle loved your photo sequence.

I agree - from the perspective of anyone who doesn't drag themselves through the snow like that it does look odd.

The trick with spray however... is to kick up the spray, then turn back through it. In which case you could well be carving as you emerge from your cloud 😉 The other trick is to make one big turn, and count down to it so the photographer knows it's coming.

As you said @Jack M, especially is Spring conditions, the displaced snow has to go somewhere 🤷🏾‍♂️

ps  @Calle, love that sequence! 👍🏾

"any cat can make groomers, but only god can make powder" … I know, hammer helmet, but it got

pushed down from my hood on a deep toeside turn and notice my bent ladder on heelside …

it was a bluebird day … I made it snow … haha … and yes it was a clean carve ...

skier buddy of mine is back there getting the cold smoke screen.  we trade shots.  when i am near the lift unbuckling he usually gets his revenge.

also, this is 5 years ago - i always wear a helmet now.  as time passes, i find it hard to believe that i used to be so sure of myself.
