One of my goals this season is to improve my currently pathetic jumping. I want to handle drops of up to ten feet in good conditions. Today at Squaw, with wonderful powder conditions, I tried a couple of 7 foot drops off Granite Chief and Broken Arrow. Both times I buried my skis on landing, double ejected and threw some pretty impressive over-the-handlebars somersaults. When I dug up my skis there were side by side, having released simultaneously. Am I leaning too far forward in my landing? I'm on 174cm Stockli DP's with Soloman ti 912's.
