It looks a bit too cold for me. And freewheeling seems to involve a lot of sitting in the snow! Fun to watch.
Interesting music.

Thanks for sharing !

You seem to have a very good coasting technique with long freewheeling time without any uppper body balance adjustment required.

And I am green with envy seeing that you already have snow ! (I'm still waiting for some around here ).

I don't practice sliding specially. It happens forcedly on snow. I was sliding about one foot.
