I want to try a backflip on skis...i am great at doing them on trampolines, and i can do gainers off diving boards, but i am a little hesitant about putting it on the slopes...any thoughts
build a jump with a lot of lip and a powder landing and go for it, make sure you commit

if you can do gainers on diving boards, then i cant see backflips being a problem...
hey i landed my first one today. its really not that hard you just have to commit completely but ya find pow pow and build a jump that has a ton of pop like one that your skis cant sit flat on. if they flex alot when you hit the jump then your good but really its not that hard. its easier than a 3 u just have to sack up
i backflipped before i gainered. but yeah. simple, build jump with lip, have snow on landing, and flip.
ight thanks the snow part will be the most difficult because we dont really have any here
i did one on snow before i even did one on a tramp
i landed the first one i tried, just make sure the landing is steep, that helps a lot.
keep it safe for a bit by doing them mega aerial steeze wiht your hands forward coming into the jump, then pop with feet and shoulders at same time, then brings your knees up, then spot, then open up when you need to.
spot the landing and you will be fine!
i like pow pow!
commit. once you get used to them, you can do them off anything

My exact thoughts.
And as for the B-Flip....they're easy, just don't think about it too much, otherwise you'll get scared and hurt yourself.

Yes it's true, I can lick my elbow.
And don't do them on racing skis. I knew this kid that was super intent on doing a bacjkflip but all he had was race skis, and he didn't pop out of the jump and just ended up fucking himself over. Hopefully this isn't a problem you (or we) have to worry about. But like everyone else has said, commit.
