don't do this on tramp it will set the cork 3 weird. You can't throw a cork 3 the same way you throw it on skis. I believe LJ did a tramp cork 3 tutorial on the snogression facebook page that really helped me with my cork 3's
On snow. Go way too fast for the jump, do a 360, try to double grab, end up facing the ground thus having your life flash before your eyes, take it to gucci plateau, barley land it, then play it off like you were trying to cork 3. Works every time.
I learned them at woodward a few months ago, but I they're way harder on my own regular tramp.
First off, set it more like a spin than a flip or else you'll do an under flip, then try to point your inside knee down and spin our outside leg around it while keeping your legs wide. At first you'll probably take it to 4 ish but then you get the feel for it and can get em better and more consistent.

i've never tried them on skis so i can't really give any advice there... but learning them on tramp is a pain in the ass.. you can try doing a 3 and lightly throwing your hips out to the side like LJ said, but when i do that i get them way more inverted than i would like... so to get myself in the habit of doing less inverted cork 3's I would spread my legs to past shoulder distance by about 4 inches (you look stupid doing this i know) and then i would do a 3 and pretend i was a dog pissing on a fire hydrant to my left with my right leg up, and grab safety with my right hand.. as stupid/weird/confusing as that may sound it got my cork 3's pretty much on lock and now i don't have to do any weird shit to get into them...but thats just for tramp
