i'm going to go with an "other" option and say getting air. i am most uncomfortable in the air but have been trying to push my boundaries. most specifically, i am concerned with airing it in the backcountry or in trees (e.g. small cliff drops) as opposed to parks and tricks. though i would like to throw a trick or two in there... i am all about adding style and grace to my technique book when ever possible
nailing an eight foot drop under the lift on my first day of lift served last month really got me jonesing for pushing this aspect of my skiing
I'm going to have to vote "big air" too. Funny, cause I swore off jumping after tearing my stomach muscles last year, but it's so damn addictive. I'm nursung a bruised elbow and cut on my back right now from building a kicker up the hill on sunday. I also wan't to focus on pulling stuff off natural feautures ( I pulled a nice, small 360 off a natural QP up at winter park this week and rode it out fakie
For me I think the key to good air is to relax and don't think about what your pulling, just know and go. Everytime I am focused on the trick I end up under rotating or being back on the board. If I just relax and clear my head I seem to pull it off with ease ??? Anyway, I really wan't to pull a backside 360 with a nice grab off some huge drop into massive POW! Yup, that'll do me lord!
P.S. I'm amazed at how many people I've seen already this season pulling rails with out a helmet. Protect your noggin you nobs
P.S.2. Yeah! The seasons started... I fell like an addict who got his fix.
