A couple of ways. One is that very few riders can do it while everyone can skid. The other is that, based on my understanding, to do a cuttie etc you need to reduce friction and unweight your tires a little in order to allow the wheels to drift a little. It seems to me that skidding involves digging in your rear wheel and dragging the trail surface with you. These may be subtle differences but the odd occasion when I’ve been able to do this, generally by accident, it hasn’t felt like I was damaging the trails. If we’re talking about Brook MacDonald that’s likely a completely different story.
