when trowing a beginner three should i start on one side of the lump and land on the oposite site spining in between? ive herd its an easier way to begin. and when setting the spin should you carve off of the lip?
i mean start skiing on the right side of the jump and then as you are coming off start to spin and land on the left side of the landing
If u want to go cork sure go ahead but if ur just startin 3s i think u should find a jump that ur comfortable with and just go for it. Rotate ur shoulders and head first, and your feet should follow. Using your poles and arms to swing yourself around helps too if its ur first time, I leaned it that way. Its also good to try a 270 on a small hip or a spine first, its easier and it builds your confidence, then from there its only another 90. Good Luck!
just give it a huck and you should be good. keep hucking.

no in order to do that u have to carve, and if u carve u will go cork and most likely bail. so just pop and do ur 3 going straight ahead.
On normal ground (just wearing shoes or w/e) jump up and do a 3. this will show you how you need to set your spin. focus on looking straight ahead and not down when you land.
Find a small jump on your hill, i learnt on 5 foot jump, wind up, turn your head and shoulders and the rest of your body will follow. i hate to say but just pencil it out.
like you need sidewalls or edges for anything important. what do you do with your park skis? play racer? - asian_allen
For me doing 3's or 5's what ever on the ground didnt help skiing at all. It was completely different, you just have to go for it, make sure to pop hard off the balls of the feet, dont be leaning back and throw once you have popped and make sure to keep looking, just think about looking over your shoulder and it will set your rotation, look for your landing and stomp it! good luck, it took me a couple trys to do my first too
ok I used to browse through threads like this all the time. I personally just started doing threes this season but really got them down over the last five times i went. Anyway, when I look through all these threads about how to do 360s or 540s i always see that people say to spot your landing or pick a place and keep looking for it. This DID NOT work for me . . . (as a side note i feel like I may be the only one on NS with this view) when I would go for the 360 and spot my landing I always would end up getting to a little over 180 (lets say 220 for shits and giggles) and i would end up kind of flailing to make it around. I found that it is easier to just wind up hard and commit, do not put effort into spotting a landing , just go with the flow. As someone above me said, it is just like spinning on the ground really - it just takes more force. I find that I am spotting my landings now naturally and can land threes with ease. It will just click, it happened with me and a few of the people i ride with just out of the blue , we all attribute it to the fact that we just let it flow , dont think about it too much.
im not sure if that made any sense but i tried.
^ yeah. despite what others say, just don't think about it too much, let instict/natural feel take over. let yourself know you're gonna 360, set it, and make sure your rotating those hips
yeah don't carve off the jump, just come straight at it, pre-wind, pop, and throw the spin.
just make sure you don't look up or down, that'll cause you to cork it out and land on either your ass or stomach. otherwise just spin it and let ur skis find the landing, you'll be fine.
