How To Survive a Double Black Diamond - Big Mountain Snowboarding

October 28, 2017

 


In this video I head to the top of Blackcomb mountain to snowboard down a double black diamond run. I've got 3 tips that will help you to survive snowboarding on sketchy steep runs like this. The first tip is to stay on your edges at all times while on steep runs. The edge that I prefer to stay on for the steepest parts is my toe edge. The second tip is to make quick turns with your whole body. Making quick turns on your snowboard will keep you in control and stop you from picking up too much speed. The final tip is to make sure you're snowboarding with a balanced body position. This means riding with your knees bent and back straight. Plus keeping your back hand over the tail of your snowboard on toe turns. I hope these three tips will help you survive double black diamond runs on your snowboard! This video was filmed on the Couloir Extreme in Whistler, B.C.
