"When you ski powder, it's kind of effortless in a way," Swedish big mountain skier Henrik Windstedt says in this video. "All you have to do is angle your skis in the direction you want to turn and the rest comes naturally."
Windstedt makes it sound and look so easy, but it's pretty hard to ski big, technical lines as fast as he does. And few skiers can throw a lofty back flip or perfect 360 while skiing a spine wall. All of that is a cinch for Windstedt. He skis smooth, making complicated lines look simple and that's good style.
As he says, "Just keep everything together and ski as hard as you can."
