A pretzel is a spin out of a rail spinning on the opposite direction of the way you actually got on the rail. It was at first a snowboarding manoeuvers and then we poached the name.
In skiing, pretzels are a bit different since the regular fs 270 out is a change of spinning direction.
basically if you want to do any kind of pretzels on skis, you have to spin at least 180 degree.
so a siwtch up ( rotating 180 while sliding the rail) then psinning out the opposite direction is a pretzel spin out.
so 270 in spinning to the right and then spinning a 270 out to the left is a 270 in pretzel 270 out.
right foot foward to fs switch up ( 180 to the right) tehn a 270 out to the left is a fs switch up pretzel 270 out.
450 on to the right then 270 out to the left is 450 on pretzel 270
switch on bs 270 out should not be called a pretzel in the skiing meaning of the words since there is no spins greater then 180 in it
hope that helps and theat we wont see any other threads about them in the future.
