im scared the shit out of the big jumps and doing tricks on them i have skied about 2 years now and still afraid of them... i dont know why. So do you guys have any advice for getting enough brave to hit those jumps and doing tricks on them, cause i dont want to be a bad skier :)
just follow someone into the jumps, keep pressure on the front of your boots and absorb the landings...
practise on smaller jumps and work up... it's the only way!

i have the same problem dude, the only thing that works is what the guy above me said. make one of your friends make you do it. be like "dude, im doing this, dont let me on the lift if i dont". give yourself consequences if you puss out, and most importantly, dont think too much. most of the falls i take on jumps are because i overthink the shit out of something and get off balance or something stupid.

I was going to reply to this, however my entire post was botched by a stupid Advertisement for Cadillac that would not go away.Really, who on here can afford one of those?Lets get more related advertisements on here.
Kinda the mentality i take to cliffs, im not much of a park skier, but it can cause problems. Sometimes when i just turn my brain off i lose focus and get sloppy, if that makes any sense. I like giving myself a countdown, once u say dropping in 10 u can't really turn back, then start reciting exactly what i want to do in my head as im coming in, then just have everything turn off in the air. I think a similarly thought process could help with park. Also, as said earlier, go skiing with friends that are better than you that will force you to try things your not comfortable with yet, makes it alot harder to puss out.
I have the same problem with jumpers too. I'm scared shitless of doing anything bigger than a 3 off a huge kicker. I'll do any rail in the park, but jumps scare the hell out of me. I find its better if you just turn the volume all the way up and put on your favorite song. Start bumpin, and just get pumped to hit it.

My lil bro got on a lift with a complete gaper, gaper turned to my lil bro and asked, are there any blacks on this mountain? My brother replied "No I don't think black people do snow sports they're not acclimatized"
