i was kidding, i would start out with 90ing onto flat boxes and doing jumps on the tp, also make sure youre comfortable with going switch and a first trick should be a 180

well the main thing is when you go off the jump to have your legs about shoulder with apart and do try to pop off the lip of the jump or anything just ride off it

when you are coming down about to land just dont freak out and land with your wait evenly between your skis dont land on your edges

the most important part is being comfortable in the air and that just comes in time

Hmmm--- Sounds like you need some instruction or a clinic from a pro (ski instructor who specializes in teaching P & P stuff). Next time you are at your ski hill check with the ski school and see what they recommend.

Your local ski shop can also give you advice on the appropriate P & P ski to rent and proper length ski.

Areas with parks / pipes usually have one or more qualified instructors available to show you a few things.

Most of the information you need is available on line, either on the ski manufacturers web site or the ski areas web site.

Look away,

Here is another candidate for a Darwin award. Don't dive into the shallow end of the gene pool.
