Steppers – After the landing hill has been chopped and softened, the stepper crews will side step the steep hill.

The purpose of this is to keep the chopped snow on the landing hill, and semi pack it down as small steps are taken moving sideways.

This process works best when the crews are on skis and have ski poles for added balance.
