Itís really hard to explain the pleasure offered by riding a snowboard off-piste in soft fresh powder snow. Floating feeling brings full of freedom and happiness.

Iím not an extreme snowboarder but dont deny riding steep slopes and deep powder making me feel better.

I try not to tilt my board too much from one edge to the other in turns before speeding up. In steep slopes, this technique does not help me much. I definitely need to make quick and short turns.

I think jump turns are essential to save time and take control of the board. I keep practising to jump with my board, pivot in the air and land on the opposite edge. I still need to have time and knowledge to figure out hopping part imo because my landdings are not generally straight across the fall line when i hop to turn and most of them result in tomahawk. I would like to hear your opinions about jump turns...
