I've noticed that the wider ski stance of a trail sled does adversely effect the initiation of a carve. My Gen II RMK is much simpler to tip up than my XCSP (when its steering post isn't bending like a piece of leftover pasta.) Still though, the Edge XC is not a hard machine to carve. What gives, IBS? Lay that thing over. Problem is that all the dipshits on this site give people crap when they fall off their sleds so you're tentative to really give 'er! Why don't you just join my posse, and we'll be the dipshits sitting on our asses in the snow not caring if we're getting laughed at. We'll have the last laugh when we stick the perfect carve: counter-rotated hip dragging 2 feet under the snow, powder whistling over your shoulder like a waterski spray, sled invisible except for the outside ski tip and corner of the windshield, outside heel hooked on the upper edge of the seat just waiting to stomp the opposite running board to perfectly link into an even more submerged carve in the other direction. Now that's what I'm talkin about!

Bigger the ape hangers, the easier it is (to a point) keep that back straight and out and your balance will go up. Plus you save some wear and tear on yourself. If it is a real tight carve that you have to make stick your foot out like a rudder and you can go slower and tighter then feet on either side. Or throw your brake hand in the snow and show off like this...

When it all comes down to it, everyone is different and rides their sleds in a different way so the only real answer is to practice. Practice doing it faster as well and it makes doing it slower more comfortable.

I can tip the XCR right over in 8" of snow no problem. The hard one is the Turd XCSP.

How many times did you see me with one ski in the air and me on my back in that little hidden untouched area? A lot. Maybe I'm not used to the lower center of gravity. Whatever, I'm chopping my radius rods down.
