It seems to be a growing trend amongst big mountain riders to beeline it across huge sheets of mountain ice. Many snowboarders (and myself included) wouldn't even think about going near surface ice but in this week's installment of "How To XV", Xavier De Le Rue teaches us the proper ice-riding techniques and how it can be fun!
"Riding ice might not seem like an obvious choice when searching for freeride lines, normally you want to hunt out nice fresh powder, but in this episode of How To Xv I go through why riding ice can be good for your riding and why it can be fun too! The biggest lesson from riding ice is probably one of commitment, but getting a feel for ice can also help you to feel comfortable if you come across any by surprise. If you do want to go and ride ice, please make sure to start slowly and steer clear of ice above exposure. "
