During the season, the choice of mountains can't be beat! Whistler, Cypress, Grouse, Seymour, Hemlock, Manning, are all day trips. As are Mt Washington and Baker if you want to brave a ferry lineup or a border lineup respectively. They all start and end the season around the same time though. Whistler keeps going a little later up high on the glacier, but it's not a full-open thing.

Yeah, I know, some of you are hitting your end of season now. And believe me, I feel for you. But I still envy the Mammoth people.

Off-season bites.

I was in Mammoth for a fishing trip last year during the 4th of July weekend and i heard it was the last weekend for snowboarding/skiing. I was debating but i chose
Fishing > snowboarding with a rental.
if you have a chance, fishing in Mammoth in the summer is so much fun. They stock their local lakes with rainbow,brown and brook trout.
also its usually a nice comfy 70 degrees.

btw i heard this season might be similar to last season, so looks like snowboarding til early july is possible

carvebeast to the op, it looks to me like you are a little on edge when popping off the lip. learning to pop off an edge is a useful tool as you learn spins, but when youre just getting the hang of straight airs/grabs i think its better to make sure and put your base flat as you go off the lip.

1.) get your setup turns (try not to scrub speed) as you approach the lip.
2.) when you're about 5 feet away, put your base flat, keep your weight centered, and begin loading up the tail as you approach the lip.
3.) pop!
4.) bring your knees up, keep your upper body quiet, and dont lean back or forward. once you get the feel for that floating feeling, then start reaching for various grabs and try some shiftys just to get the feel for moving your board around in the air (will help you when you learn spins).

all this is situational depending on the size of the jump, as you hit bigger features you should just basically let the jump do the work for you and not need to pop as much as others have said.

Wow he's ridden for a year and he can hit jumps woo hoo I know a hundred kids that can't turn that could hit those jumps too want to go praise them?

Call me what you want but I did what was asked.
There is a difference between "Critique" and "Criticize" you obviously chose to criticize.

You are doing good man. Just keep practicing and be passion and it will come
The vid was taken with a gopro hd. In some of the shots there is complete white out of the snow with no detail. I think it's because it was too sunny with lots of glare off the snow.
