Advanced Snowboarding Tips : How to Absorb Terrain when Snowboarding Powder

KEVIN BYFORD: Hi. I’m Kevin Byford with the
Ski and Snowboard Schools of Aspen on behalf of the Expert Village. So, the thing about
riding powder is you can ride it a lot faster and a lot more variable terrain. However,
you do need to ready for that terrain and to absorb it, that’s why we’ve been flexing
our legs. If you do go off of your jumps make sure you land, you get your landing on a flat
board and you’re landing with flexed knees. Nice and bent, so you can absorb the terrain.
Let’s see how that looks.

    might be that you have your weight too far back. if you lean back to far it is harder to dig your toe edge in.

    helmet saved my friends life and would have prevented my concussion… wear one

    I don't get it. Maybe you could ease up on the speed and steady the camera so I can see what you mean by this absorbing the terrain. Riding fast on your demo won't get you any extra points.

    insurance to cover your inability to snowboard and be smart and NOT go into trees a week into the sport?

    Don't learn to ride in trees, ride in a open mountain.

  17. Luke Giduz says:

    riding through trees is fun and exciting, its like a maze that you have to work out super quickly or else get yourself wrecked

  18. Marcus says:

  21. r0ffen says:

    I don't get it, don't really see any absorbing action there at all… Get a wider stance, keep low to the ground and go fast! Oh and get a backplate and helmet for godssake!

  22. J Smith says:

    @STorpedo actually you would be caught DEAD

  23. Matthew Mosso says:

    @TheCowboyssuperbowl O yea and with some of them steezy kids that laps through A51. Their confidence rode out with them on stretchers with fractured skulls and concussions. So I gotta hand it to you confidence might just be the key

    @Peaceryder mmyea i dont think so.. I'm what you might call an 'advanced beginner' by your definition I guess. In the sense that I'm now learning to ride fakie and im jumping off natural kickers. And this shit is pointless to me. Why? Well, first of all, he's doing it wrong. He's not leaning on his back foot enough to stand out in the pow and he's constantly losing speed and thrusting as if he was having sex 0:36 … Secondly its not educational.. 'keep ur knees bent' RLY!??!
