Pipe Tricks Skiing

How to 360 in the Halfpipe

This is how to do a 360 in the halfpipe from Fall Line Skiing. Before doing this trick you should be able to Straight Air and preferably but not crucially 360 on a Kicker. You should also be able to ride Switch.

  1. Ride up the Wall just as you would for a straight air
  2. Timing for the pop is crucial, if you pop to early you will loose all your momentum. Pop when you get to the top of the pipe or when you as high up the wall as you are going to get.
  3. As you pop you need to turn your head and shoulders hard into the rotation, this will initiate the spin, Again do not do this too early.

  1. Run up to the Kicker with a good amount of speed to comfortably clear the knuckle.
  2. As you get to the lip of the Kicker you want to rotate your upper body as you would for a 180 but with a bit more power behind it to give you the extra spin. You should time this so your upper body has started the spin before you pop, your legs will then follow.
