I might go up this weekend, not sure yet. Hopefully next season will be better than this one, even though I can't complain too much with all the late snow we're getting.

You should definitely write a book or something...publish it online maybe. Your instruction and advice are first class plus you write well in a clear manner, easy to understand etc. Not many people can do that.

Its 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.

Im 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...

Try a swallow tail. You wont need to do jump turns anymore.

Thanks for your suggestion. Im gonna try one asap. I would love to have one, they look pretty sexy but I already had a freeride/pow board, Nidecker Mega. On the other hand, Im planning to buy a mountain freestyle / park board soon

Sorry about the OT... what kind of bindings are you running on that Mega? I have the same board and I think my bindings might be a bit too soft for it (Flux TT30).

Cheers

Mega is the MEgalight? Not a pow board FYI. Just another mountain "twin". No taper.

Tom Burt says about 10mm of taper is just about perfect for a "free ride" board, Helps with those pow turns in the steeps. I think hybrid rockers help even more.
