The reason people are able to snowboard is due to pressure redistribution. When you strap into the board, your body weight is shifted from two relatively small platforms onto one, much larger, platform. From there, it's simply a matter of shifting your weight so your board can build up snow when stopping or turning, and keeping yourself upright in the POW.
