Everyone says that switch 3's are easier than regular 3's. I don't agree at all. It took me forever to learn switch 3's. Here's how i learned...
Get VERY good at skiing switch to the point where you can parallel switch down greens. Nothing looks worse than switch in a giant V. If you spin left it will benefit you to ski switch looking over your LEFT shoulder because you will be spinning in your normal direction. Next, find little tiny mounds of snow and practice popping little switch 1's. Then when your comfortable, maybe practice switch 1's over rollers or something bigger. Then it's time to set the spin a little harder for the full 3.
I feel it's important to carve switch spins of jumps for 3 reasons. It automatically kind of sets your spin. Carving helps to prevent your tips from catching on the lip (which is the worst. SPIN WHEN YOU POP, not on the transition) And last, it looks so much sicker carving a spin off a jump.
