I started skiing a few years ago and i have progressed pretty well on rails but for some reason jumps haven't come to me easily. BasicaIly i have a hard time keeping control of my body in the air. Any tips to fix this?
Speaking of this, will most gymnastics facilities let you use their tramps for this? Every time I see a tramp edit pop up there are always people with throw pads around, it seems like an open gym at a gymnastics facility might not like someone trying like dub 12s without a throwpad.
Oh and OP get to a trampoline and practice tricks on there. After this then you should take it to a water ramp or airbag. (Its ok if they arent available to you) Then, during the begining of the ski season, straight air all the jumps 5 times. After that, apply what you know and shred the park.
well if u havent been skiing for very long, your basic technique might be the problem. The key is to stay forwards in your boots, so your shins are always touching the tongues. Also try to dampen the jump and absorb the take off rather than let it buck u. When people go straight into the park with minimal skiing experience they tend to bring their backseat skiing as well.
To be honest just rid the mountain and get used to controlling yourself. Hit all the little side hits and just get comfortable in the air. Even rollers and things on normal runs will help a lot. Getting comfortable in the air is as much about getting comfortable on your skis in generall.
