Last week we posted a set of butter tutorials from Ryan Knapton, who may well be the snowboard equivalent of a ghost gliding serenely over the hill. It also went down pretty damn well, so we figured for all the triples, frontblunts and creeper rails that might be cool to watch, it’s the tricks that don’t require 21m tables that stoke you out the most.
In that vein, we’ve rounded up some tricks that you can pretty much do anywhere that has snow. Apart from in the streets ‘caus it would really hurt if you fell over…
Some of these have been covered in the buttering post, but the majority are new. We’ve done our best to scout out tutorials for you, but some are from edits from some of the worlds best snowsliding professionals.
The park isn’t always open, and it’s tricks like these that keep you entertained when there are winches in the landing. To a certain degree, we think the largest part of snowboarding is learning to see the mountain’s natural terrain in a way in which you can incorporate it into your riding. Blauvelt style.
If there are any tricks we’re missing, let us know in the comments and we’ll get ’em up for you.
