Help with 360's/Heli's/ect?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I saw the thread on flat 360's on the ground and i can do those and have all of that down. I can also while riding on the flat snow and while going of jumps do 180s and land backwards. I'm a free/park skiier by the way. I definately ready to try a 360 off a jump. I'm just not sure on the technique to get it good and not kill my self the first time. I've been out for about 3 weeks now and still have another 2 to wait before I can go back out on the mountain. I got a concussion (landed on my face after a unexpected jump at about 35 mph). So I'm gonna be a little more prude and cautious on my first couple times back. I just wanna know what I should look for and do when it comes time for the big moment.

Thanks in advance

A 180 is a good start but it is very different from a 360 in one important way. Spinning a 180 you can spot your landing the entire time and a 360 requires you to be blind to your landing for a split second while your head twists around. Assuming you can comfortably air the jump in question and assuming you can recover from landings that are slightly off axis in any direction, a 360 just requires you to commit to turning your head all the way around and your body will pretty much do the rest.

I advise starting small but it may require some windup with your arms. When I was first learning, I built a tiny tiny tiny jump with a friend one day so that even if I did come down sideways, I didn't have the velocity to hurt myself.

Landing the first one is such a sweet feeling. I definitely remember the jump, trail, and mountain where I did my first heli.
