How to nose butter on skis

Nose butters are really hot right now thanks to Henrik Harlaut and is ridiculously sick nose butter dub cork 12s.  Just some things you should know before you get silly with this endeavor.

  • Nose butters can be done on most jump features, but we recommend working your way up from knuckles of jumps and eventually onto the jumps themselves.
  • Easier to do on lips that don’t have tons of pop or on knuckles with steep landings
  • Stiffer the ski, the faster you have to go to  really benefit from the flex of the ski

So without further adieu, follow these simple steps and learn to enjoy a trick that can be performed just about anywhere of just about anything.

  1. When you’re going up to the feature, be in your normal scissored and exceptionally fresh thug stance but do keep your knees bent slightly.
  2.  As you approach the lip/knuckle, keep your head focused on the point where you will initiate the butter.
  3. Once you are at the edge of the lip, start turning but keep your head focused on the lip.  This will allow your tails to lift and pivot around while loading up the shovels of your skis.  Your knees should straighten out but don’t POP.  Controlling the timing is everything.
  4. The flex of the skis will launch you airborne.  At that point, your rotation is very naturally set so don’t be afraid to put an extra 180 in there and take it to five.
