you might remember me from about a month ago posting here. I have been skiing a lot since and I have definatly improved (longer skis definatly helped a ton). But I have a few questions. If you don't know, I live near the Alta ski resort and I have a pass there.
So, I have been really havin fun doing jumps and cliffs lately off groomed and such. There are a few jumps and cliffs I want to hit but the landings are steep and bumpy. One of the jumps is the one right under neath Collins lift, it is like a big mound and a long landing. I really want to be able to hit this jump with speed and not have to worry about crashing on the run out because the landing/run-out is bumpy and not smooth and it is steep. Can you tell me how to handle these sketchy run outs without just crashing? There is another little cliff off of a groomer that I want to try but the landing, again has bumps and moguls and is also steep. I really don't like making turns to scrub speed while going fast on bumps and uneven slope so just running out onto the groomer I think would be easier.
Also, I want to try a 180 but I am having trouble finding a jump to try it on. Anyone skied at Alta somewhat recently? I don't expect to land first try but I want to do it on a jump that has an almost flat run out so I don't get too much speed switch. Anytips for this?
