Quite a few years ago I rode Snowy Trail on a 1983 Husky 500XC. The switchbacks were tighter than the ol Husky could turn. The first few I had to stop and pick up the back of the bike to get around the corners. Then I started to go in hot and brake slide around. That worked alot better, I've been "backing it in" ever since. That pic shows one of the easy sections.
