8 Tips for Making the Most Of a Powder Day

If it's dumping and tomorrow is going to be bluebird - here are a few things worth thinking about

Ride the Whole Mountain

Boom – what a line!

This is probably the weirdest tip to do with riding powder, but you should spend some time in the pipe. Not on a powder day obviously, but although this structured discipline seems the furthest removed from freeriding it’s actually super beneficial.

Pipe-riding is so hard because it’s all about having proper technique; good weight distribution and perfect carves, so if you can confidently make it to the bottom of a pipe you’ll be able to absolutely slay the next powder bowl you end up in; no better example is needed than Terje Hakoonsen.

Likewise if you want to get better at nailing those drops then what better set up is there to practice on that the snow park? Next time you hear those Jeremy Jones backcountry types sniffing about park rats and ‘true snowboarding’ instead think Jake Blauvelt, nothing beats an all rounder.
