I may or may not do video versions for the other sections of our gear guide. Let me know if that’s something you’d like me to do.

ps – I know our regular readers have the guide already, but I figured I’d make a video version of the snowboard sizing/how to size a snowboard section for those who’d rather be able to just watch a video instead of reading the guide.

A lot of people have the habit of downloading guides and never reading them, at least this way anyone can just hit play and learn how to pick a snowboard correctly.

Snowboard Trampoline Training In Whistler (video)

What you learn in this video:

  • Why trampolines are an amazing tool for snowboard training
  • How to build your aerial awareness (so you can do sweet grabs and spot your landing better)
  • Why it’s easy to learn backflips and frontflips in one trampoline session

This week I took a trip with my ex-housemates to the local trampoline center in Whistler. Our goal was to practice some flips, build our aerial awareness and just have some fun because trampolines are the bomb.

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with trampolines because they’re amazing snowboard training tools, but they also make my knee swell up like a balloon… fyi this is why you never want to have serious knee injuries.

Crazy Near Miss Snowboard Crash (Skier In Landing)

So I was doing some mellow snowboard park laps and this happened:

Somehow I happened to land in that tiny gap between the skier and that loose ski. Definitely got a little lucky on this one.
