Trampoline to Snow
I've got down a bunch of tricks on tramp, and about to try them on snow. I've even used my boots on my tramp to make it more realistic. Any advice on making the transition from tramp to snow? For example, would I throw a cork 7 the same way on skis as I would on a trampoline?

of course it helps for obvious reasons but there is a big difference between bouncing up and down on a soft tramp then doing a trick going 20+mph on skiis of a lip of a jump.
i used to do flips corks anything on a tramp. I cant even do solid 3's on skis
none of this matters if u have balls of steel. im 30 i lost those in like 98

Its actually pretty different because tramp is taking off flat landing flat. Taking tricks to your stomach on a tramp wiuld probly be a closer rotation.
I've done flats and backs and I think they feel just like they do on a trampoline, the technique (for me) is identical. The first time I flipped on snow I lost my body tension halfway and came up short on a flat 3 but if you've done them tons on a trampoline you'll know how to correct mid flip and have no trouble.
I'm not sure if I'd follow the advice of getting used to landing on your chest.. That hurts, I tried.
I would be interested to know how corks and mistys feel on skis as they're something I want to try.
Basically, build a nice jump, fluff up the landing for your first attempt. Then stomp it.

Thanks I will try some of these things
If you fall it hurts a little bit more ;)
Not at all the same. I could throw dub mistys on a tramp this summer, and now im struggling with a misty on skis
