my friend works at the snowboard shop in town here, and the other day this dude came into the store and asked my friend "what is this?" pointing at a snowboard binding. here are some of the things he said during their conversation.
"oh, i thought they were something you put on your feet while walking around"
"you use two of them? [one on each foot?]"
and you are more clueless than that guy.

thats because pollard was sent from the future to save mankind from permanent annihilation. he just happens to ski too. he was actually skiing half assedly in stereotype just so that our heads wouldn't explode immdediately after seeing it.
you are incorrect. a lip is when your TAILS GO OVER FIRST! so switch lip your tails go over the rail basically hitting it blind. so going on switch hitting a lip to the right of the rail and spinning 90 to the skiers left. that is switch lip. its super hard trust me. further more a lip 270 on is where a skier spins to the left if the rail is on the right side of the lip. making it nearly impossible to spot the rail before you come around. again putting his TAILS OVER THE RAIL FIRST!
Lip going FORWARD means tail over the rail first, if your going switch, it makes sense to reverse this rule making sw lip mean nose over first doesnt it? Think about which tricks look more similar. In snow/skateboarding lip is just getting what ever comes second over the rail first.
"In rode the Lord of the Nazgul. A great black shape against the fires beyond, he loomed up, grown to a vast menace of despair. In rode the Lord of the Nazgul, under the archway that no enemy ever yet had passed, and all fled before his face.
All save one. There, waiting silent and still in the space before the gate, sat Gandalf upon Shadowfax : Shadowfax, who alone among the free horses of the earth endured the terror, unmoving, steadfast as a graven image in Rath Dinen."
