today was the first day ive really been able to get out on my rail and thats just what i was working on. i found it much easier when i first, looked down the rail as i got ready, and second it was all about spotting the landing because on a smallish spin like that you really dont need a ton of power. and thats crazy that its easier to 270 in, lucky guy.
if you're doing a frontside 270 off and sliding right foot foward you want to scissor your skis so that your right tail is down and your right tip is up, this will give you a grip of the rail and you will be able to pop the spin off. for backside right foot forward, same thing, scissor your skis but look the other way and get that grip so you can pop the spin off. once you are able to get that scissor down and you can lock in, spinning off will be a lot easier both directions.
