I was lucky enough to be invited to go Snow Biking with Jason from 3Ski Snow Bikes last week and it was brilliant! Fun, exhilarating and so easy to learn. Having a few injuries and being a bit wary of hurting myself again I was keen to give this a go. After a brief lesson, we then spent 30 minutes on the learners slope perfecting our technique. Once that was done we had another lesson on how to get on and off the chair lift (very important to save embarassing moments in front of a crowd) and then we were off up to the top of McDougalls at Cardrona!
Drifting is a driving technique where the driver intentionally oversteers, causing loss of traction in the rear wheels, while maintaining control from entry to exit of a corner. A car is drifting when the rear slip angle is greater than the front slip angle, to such an extent that often the front wheels are pointing in the opposite direction to the turn (e.g. car is turning left, wheels are pointed right or vice versa).
