Slyder, you should have taken your son to the mighty midwest camp back in late december early january. They stopped at tyrol and granite peak. I attended the camp and it was an amazing experience for my first camp and i got a helmet which i use all the time now because i never use to have one. I learned alot of new tricks and had a great time too, consider taking your son next year to the camp and you wont regret it.

Yes I was going to do MMWT at Tyrol Basin but it was out of my budget and over New Years eve and New Years day and we were having a house full of friends so that didn't work out. Granite Peak stop I would also have to do a hotel and take off work so couldn't do that.

I am trying to save for a camp for the kids. Per Wolf that would be awesome but again outside of my means.

nomembername, I so wish he would watch videos. He does a little on youtube, I have the box set of Snowboard Addiction training videos and he won't watch them. I just get a grumpy "I'm not gonna watch them" really don't know why and that is upsetting and enraging at the same time as they would truly help him.

Not saying this will work for him but personally this has helped me so far.

Get a bigger jump.

Whenever I go through the smaller park and hit smaller jumps I always feel off and even stack, after stacking off the smaller jumps and rails went back into the M/L side of the park and was hitting 25-35footers and landing them perfectly. I personally find the take off and landings better with bigger jumps.

John Doe and others have mentioned this, we just got back from a very short outing today. I watched him ride just on the groomers and boy is he "open". He is almost looking straight down the hill and while bombing blacks....

He hit a few jumps today, they were pretty icy even though the hill itself was in good shape. He did same as usual. Facing straight down hill, straight legs, washing out heelside on the landing.
Positive note, we stepped aside from the lift line and I showed him exactly his body language and explained how his lower body was just catching up to his upper body while he was in the air. Causing him to land on his heelside edge and wash out. He listened a bit but also blamed the jump

I just worry a lot as if something would happen it would be to him out of my 3 kids. I can totally see it unfold as we are riding, straight legs, open shoulders, as soon as he leaves the jump his board rotates just 30degrees or so and then he slides out.

Saving up for a camp or coach for next year as the season here is fast approaching an end.

Note: it amazes me how fast he can bomb and stay in control with his upper body facing downhill like that....

All he really has to do is watch the video and he can tell whats wrong... he just looks awkward in the air. He should slightly pop off the lip, level his board out in the air, and when he lands bend the knees a little bit to absorb the impact. Also he should keeps his arms in. It just looks better. Don't be so scared, hitting kickers is so much fun! I remember when I was like him and it pissed me off to no end! Once he starts to land a few he will pick it up in a heartbeat.
