I really want to learn backflips this coming season, I never really wanted to but last year i started to ski a ton of park and now this coming season want to learn a few more tricks. What is the best way, learn on a tramp? Or just lean back? Some help would be great thanks guys
I find doing gainers on a tramp/cliff/foam pit helps you not freak out the first time taking it to snow. It gets you used to the forward movement as well
I think that Schlopy was sent from the future by Newschoolers version 16.7, which has gained consciousness and decided to destroy skiing's past in order to win the style vs. Tech argument in the future.
Learn on tramp first with a good spotter &/or loose foam pit, if you have access to one. Most gymnastics clubs have tramp classes & some even have classes for skiers/boarders. A front flip you can learn on your own & just huck on tramp, cuz if you don't make it, you just land on your back or butt. But if you don't complete your back flip, you can break your neck.
I haven't been on a trampoline in 6 years. I learned backflips using an airbag. Took me 1 time, I stuck everyone after the first one. Truley one of the easier tricks. I have a harder time spinning 360s then back flips.
To me a backflip on skis feels just kinda letting your self go. Lean back pop and pull your legs UP to your chest and hold that position nice and tight.
The more comfortable you get with the jump and backies the easier it will be to lay them out more
I've got backies down no problem on a tramp and all that. I'm thinkin first big snowfall just build a backflip jump with a nice a soft landing and take it to snow. Did anybody else do that? Any tips? I don't wanna make my own thread
I have been learning them almost exclusively on an Airbag and that seems like the best way to go. Ive never really been able to throw backflips ever (could always do fronts on tramps, into pools, stuff like that) and the bag has really helped. Took me a few dozen times before I wasnt landing on my head, but it def seems like the way to go if you have access to one.
The weekend I landed my first backy there was a airbag at my home mountain so I was going to try them on that first. I took one look at the airbag and fucked jump they had up to it and threw a back first try on a real jump. /claim fyi the fucked airbag was at mount snow.

Serious question, what does the no bounce do rather than bouncing and flipping? not even a high bounce just one to start then flip the next one. i get that you would essentially be teaching yourself to speed up the rotation but whats the difference between the two that makes taking them to snow that much easier?
yeah absolutely, backies on skis are a little easier than gainers IMO. just remember that you'll have way more swing weight on your feet skiing...BUT for a gainer you have to punch yourself into the rotation, whereas on skis the jump does that work for you
