That was actually one of the more fun crashes I've had.
The other one was on a steeper run, I forget where, but I slid backwards as I put my hands behind my head in a relaxed position.
No point in fighting it when you are sliding a steep section

still beat me to the bottom!!!! I don't even see you go by half the time! How'my gonna see what your arms are doing???
Seriously, The crap we've been riding around here,.. with such flat light, I'm focused so much on the terrain in front of me, that I haven't really noticed much about your technique! I'll try to remember to pay attention next time we ride tho! (...although I Do have a perfect mental picture of the "Superman" you pulled yesterday!!!!)

I keep my arms pretty quite when riding. I dunno, did you notice much movement from my arms when I ride Chomps?
You have to chase cam me one of these days Chomps. I've never had formal lessens. Would be nice to get some critique from Snowolf to see if there's any basics I need to polish up.

...I didn't notice it when I edited or posted the vid clip on pg. 2 of this thread, but if you pay attention to my shadow on the steep groomed run, you can tell that I'm using my arms just as you described!!!

Here's another taste from this last weekend @ Highlands. Got a little switch & some decent butters on this one!

On the way down MacGully though there's a large hip you'd love to hit that still allows you to get the cat track to K2 and Olympic.

If they get a ton of L.E. this week, I might be up for an overnighter this weekend. (...That is if you don't mind sharing a ride with a Creepy Old Guy in his "MolestO'Mobile!"!)

Man, I need to go to Highlands. Can I cut through those trees if I wanted to or is it a complete clusterfuck of branches?
That run actually looks fun. Awesome on your switch man.

|NWBoarder||Hey Chomps, just to pull your chain a little more, Mt. Rainier doesn't have any lifts. You gotta hike for lines on her beautiful face.|

For your buttering, what is your goal? It seems like you want to tail press to switch? Or just aren't countering the slope of the hill so you rotate.
If you want to spin 360, it helps to do a setup carve and carry the rotation through as you butter. You can then move to continuing to rotate around all the way down. I prefer a 360 or two, then 270 out.
Second thing, think more about shifting your hips back instead of your whole upper body. So you bring hips back, but keep the upper body straight. It helps to keep your balance and let's you get lower so you get more height but still be stable. This is even more important for a nose press down the hill. If your lead shoulder comes too far over the nose, you will probably crash.
