Id say just build a tiny jump on whatever hill you can find. That way no matter how bad you do, jou can keep going till you get it. you really dont need like a hill at all. hen I first learned, there was no hill at all, so we had to skate up to the jump, but you dont need like any air for one. Plus all you need is a tiny bump to 180 off of. Sorry if you were looking on actual tips for the trick. All i can offe rin the way of that, is that It works better for me if I land with my feet kinda wide, and dont lean back too far
flattish ground, not much speed, pop real hard and turn ur body. itl feel natural pretty quick.
welcome back from the dark side.
Heloo, my name is Shane Mckonkey. I was born in Vancouver Canada, thats aboot three hours north of, ah, seattle.
Right now were here in Bella Coola Canada, and ah, weve been shut in by the weather for like three weeks eh. We havn't shot fuck all. Ooh, Soory.
We've just been sittng around, eating pasta, and spending loonies and toonies on Kokanee and peelers.
But, as soon as this weather clears, im gunna pull on my toque, eat some canadian bacon, and ah, im keen to giver.
if you're having trouble committing to landing backwards -- it can be scary when you're blind in the air and just spotting your landing -- try a 360 first and see how that goes. and if you underrotate you got your 180 anyway. probably.
"... and that would be bad, because then you might get a yeast infection. But then I thought that it might not be that bad, because you could brew beer in there. Or bake bread."
i learned them on flat ground then like jumpin off cat tracks and stuff the other day i just hucked one in the park and it was really easy except on my 2nd one i was leanin too far forward and ejected from my bindings and hit my head so dont do that

make sure you are comfortable riding switch first...then just try it off everything small, any rollers or small mogules on the hill...just pratice it, once you get it down u can do a 180 of pretty much any thing...even pitch changes on the hill
just like go to a toboggan hill and build a jump to get them learned, and its one of those things that you can probably do but you dont know it yet so you just haveta get comfortable off something then give it a shot
shit, i forgot everyone on here has won the x games 17 times each and are the top skiers in the world, just give her some advice or say nothing, not everyone started pulling 10's straight away, there might even have been a chance that you had to learn to do a 180? maybe not tho
just gotta (wo)man up. the spin is not difficult, you just kind of float it out. when you land keep you feed a bit wide and let you knees give so you have a low center of gravity (harder to fall). start on a small jump, work your way up
its all about COMMITMENT! just think in your mind im doing a 180 off this fucking jump and just rotate right when you hit the lip. if its a small jump it should be hella easy because even if you don't make it all the way around you can scrub out of it easy and ski away. if u fall so what, it wont hurt. Now 3's are a different story.
What you need is the smallest jump you can find, not a roller, but a jump thats about 30-40 cm high and has a smooth knuckle so it doesnt matter how far you fly.
Hit the jump a couple of time straight and slowly. Until you figure out the right speed. Then walk back up, take your skis off, and jump a 180 on flat ground on your ski boots. Do it 20 times. Memorize the motion. Then put your skis back on and hit the jump slowly and repeat the exact same motion.
The first time you will land sideways but just slide it out. Walk back up. Take your skis off again, jump a few 180s on flat ground, put your skis back on and try it on the kicker. After a couple of times you will have it.
Once you have it start doing it off little bumps and off the side of the slope. After a while you'll be able to do them off flat ground and off big kickers. They will become really easy, but you gotta practice and practice and practice.
find a really small feature of to the side of a trail or a small hip like bump( i found learning on flat ground was harder). while approaching keep a wide stance, it might help if you wind up your arms a bit. while going off commit to then spin then land, the first few times you land you might find yourself going into kind of a snowplow or pizza slice position preventing yourself from riding out but you can fix that easily after you have the complete spin downpat.
