Congrats! Go you! I just did my first 180 recently too. We built a 4/5 foot kicker in my cousins backyard up at sunday river and kept using it at night since we were skiing during the day. It took me TWO days to do it, don't know if it's because my new skis are heavier then my old skis, but oh well. I still did it.
the problem i find a lot of people have with switch 180's is that they start their rotation before their tips clear the lip.
to get regular 180's to work better, just committ to them!

I just started doing 180's and my sudgestion is when you get good at 180's and going off jumps switch then do a switch 180's they are so fun and even the boarders like them!
its probably the worst idea ive ever heard of..no joke..if u like broken bones and like..fucking
Death then hell..have fun -Naturalbornskier
Just practice skiing switch a lot more so you get comfortable skiing parallel backwards at higher speeds. That way you don't wedge them when you land. But just keep doin' it man, everything becomes easier with practice.
P.S. Now try 360s. Just as easy as 180s, I garauntee you.
Yea, the landing on 180's is nice and slow, so that you absorb impact and make it look like nothing, aka stomping. Its awesome to throw a floated 180 and land it cleanly. Sweet looking too. Way to go.

im still using rentals and they arnt even twin tipped and i still land and perfect when i spot my landing im thinking of trying off the bigger jumps now maybe by next winter ill be doing smooth 180 saftys of big booters and i just started doing terrain park 4 days ago.
here's my life plan
if anyone thinks otherwise they can blow me!
Strode,I've only started doing switch jumps for two times on the hill now,and a big zero (well,not too big :>) is easier to me than a switch 180. And I can't even do a switch 180 properly,only a sw UNATTY 180 :o
Seems to me that you just gotta pop real good on the lip or you start to land on your side.. happened to me a couple of times..
