Private Lessons

1. Buy some twin-tips.
2. Get used to skiing backwards. Don't lean forward. Be comfortable with your weight centered over your feet, just like you're skiing normal.
3. Approach the jump looking over the shoulder you naturally lead with in a spin. Make sure to spot the lip.
4. Once you're airborne, keep looking over your shoulder. You'll begin to rotate without even trying.
5. Go for the grab with your trailing hand. The more you tweak your grab, the slower you'll rotate, and the longer you'll look cool.
6. Spot the landing.
7. Land.
8. Ski to the bottom of the park, pull your shirt off and shout, "Who wants some?!"
