What exactly do you mean by "bumps"? Do you mean uneven terrain, moguls, rollers, etc? Also where do you feel your balance being interupted the most. nose, tail, heel sided, toeside etc.? A little more detail will be helpful to determine what is causing your instability.

uneven terrain really.. Mostly the front of my board and more so when I am going down steeper trails.

Whenever I come across bumps I don't try to ride through them more so around them. Try riding either in the ditch between them or like halfway up them. Make quick edge changes between them planning out where your going to turn before you get their. If you have to ride over them make an effort to keep both legs independent like shocks allowing your legs to move independent of each will help keep your board in contact with the snow and avoid chattering/hopping of the bumps.
