that's why I was comparing these jumps to side hits, rollers and natural features. At this stage in the OP's progression, the air and lack of quality in the jumps themselves are something you can get just by improving your all mountain riding while by ollieing and getting used to leaving the ground, being in the air, and landing.

You would realize, like Snowolf has mentioned, your countered stance will fight you even with "all-mountain" riding and becoming a better, more disciplined rider on the whole hill is going to really be what helps you move to the next level with jumps.
