comment Twisting board technique when turning a snowboard?
@OddDeer This is in many cases the problem that a person with a certain skill tries to teach someone else. Since you often don't really know what you do exactly but do it by feeling, you try to explain what it has to feel like to be right. Especially with activities that require steering with your center of gravity (CoG), in many cases trying to do something with your arm or leg effectively results in a change of your CoG which is the actual thing you want. However, directly achieving this desired change in CoG is often much more complicated than thinking in such a "auxiliary" movement.

comment What's the safest way to hike up a steep slope in deep snow?
+1 for the last point. And angering the snow gods makes them punish the responsible person with various pests – one of them are avalanches ;-) .

comment Best method of carrying fruits over a period of 3 days while on a trek
It's interesting how fruits seem to differ in different parts of the world. Here in Central Europe, strawberries sometimes spoil within hours after you bought them while it is possible to store citrus fruits for weeks without a problem. Looks like this is either due to different conservation techniques or because their ripening state is different when they are harvested for the respective markets.
