A good landing is very important for a jumper because of two reasons: To avoid a fall and to get high style-marks by showing a good telemark.
It is called a telemark, when one ski is placed a bit ahead of the other at the landing.
The longer the jump, the more difficult it is to land because the hill gets flatter and the pressure increases. That's the reason why sometimes athletes decide to not show a telemark and use the safer landing with both legs in a parallel position.
