alright Im probably gonna get some shit for asking this but anyway.. I can get into switch but I'm having trouble reverting back to normal. I usually end up having to kinda lift one ski or shove myself back around with a pole. Any tips on how to get back to normal without looking like a retard?
go slide sideways down a hill and learn to control your speed and direction by edging your skis/pressuring the tip and tail/steering your feet. It takes tons of fine little movements. Then throwing a 180 around will feel easy.
weight on the tails helps alot, also stagger your stance like you would when you're riding switch anyway, looking over your left shoulder your left foot would be leading your right foot down the hill... hard to explain but it's easy once you get the hang of it
just try not to catch your uphill ski at 90 degrees into the spin because that hurts terribly. try and lean uphill a little more so theres nothing to catch and your skis are on edge with the downhill edge up so it slides sideways.and lean back and pressure yer tails a little
Honestly, if you can't spin from switch to normal then you probably just need to go skiing a lot more until you can control your skis. Because there is no trick to spinning around, its just something you learn.
