I made this tutorial so that you guys can learn how to spin off of boxes, rails, and handrails on skis. Doing a frontside 270 off or a backside 270 off rails is something that I think most of the ski community expects people to just know how to do. But there an easy way to teach people how to do it. It is not that hard but with this video you should be able to get it relatively quickly as long as you can slide rails right. I made this video because when I first started learning two's on I actually got them relatively easily but shortly after I was not able to get onto to the rail anymore. I i was trying 270's on and kept messing up and sam gave me one simple piece of advice that helped me do 270's onto any rail. He told me to do a 270 on that all you have to do is act as if you are going onto the rail normally and watch your tips go over the rail, if it is an urban style rail, and then finish your rotation. So it is very important to set a 270 on but not spin too early. This trick works best if you are patient and smooth. 270 ons are a trick that are decently technical and score well in comps as well as make your edit a little more interesting. Hope you guys enjoy!
