Ryanvdonkalways pop on the take off. find steeper landings when possible. try to land on the balls of your feet and adjust from there for depth and consistency of snow, but try to maintain balance. if you get too far back you will backslap. don't be afraid to inspect your landing and takeoff before you do it. if you're nervous about dropping try the 3 count (3...2...1...) and then drop in, the longer you and think with nerves the harder it is to be successful. if you can't visualize yourself landing it, save the air for a different day.

TannermillscThanks for the great tips so far. Hopefully I can remember all this until next season. Like the guy above me said I guess most of it is just mental. Hopefully this thread can help others too. Any tips for the off season?
DummyBearsShut off all brain activity.
SofaKingSickwork out-- cardio so you can hike and huff and puff and still have energy, and muscles especially your quads and core cause that will help your stomping power and will keep you intact when you fall
jump off shit into water to help your air awareness and your balls
play other sports, any are good but especially ones that teach you how to fall
watch lots of videos of good skiers bombing cliffs. sounds kinda stupid but it's crazy how well "monkey see monkey do" can help in skiing
