I am from Texas and only get to get to the hill a few times a year. This year I have told myself that I will get the 3's down. my last chance to go skiing will be in march and was looking for some advice on what to practice before and what to do when I get there. So what have I done so far? Well I just started hitting jumps this last trip and got a good feeling for the pop and that up and down feeling(like a trampoline). I spent my last few days working on skiing switch and had the 180's down pretty well(forward and back) off of small jumps. Well towards the end of the last day I decided to man up and go for it. I tried to do it 3 times and this is how it went.
First try bailed and did a 180. after talking to a park rat they said it was all about the commitment so on the second I committed and made it 270 and was o so close to buttering that last 90 before I ate it. On the last try I really wound up and over rotated by 90 and this one really hurt. After that I limped down the Mt and decided it was not a good idea to go to the hospital the day before I left. A few problems I think I have are spotting the landing, as in I don't keep my head looking down the Mt. Also on the last one I am pretty sure I was a little off axis when I landed(but I think this is because I had an uneven pop). So what do you have for me?
