Keep in mind that it shouldn't be happening every single time, but in some cases - I.e. particular jumps or racing lines - it is fairly unavoidable. You should always try to adjust your racing line or angle of attack (In the air) in a way that minimizes/prevents the impact.

Most novices (Myself included) have a hard time picking the proper race line or approach speed to a given jump that allows them to optimally 'down-side' the opposite jump face/landing area. Proper down-siding is a bit of an art, and usually involves the chassis being roughly parallel to the grade of the landing area. You want to chose an approach speed that allows you to land in an ideal area - I.e. if your buggy can't consistantly jump the full distance of that quad or triple, then break it up into seperate jumps that are more 'manageable' in terms of your rig's current performance capabilities. Consistancy wins races. Consistancy, in this case, doesn't apply to 'crashing out' every other time you attempt a given jump...
