Learn how to do butter 180 snowboarding. A butter 180 is a really fun ground trick, that you can practice all over the mountain, without a terrain park. The butter 180 combines a lot of different snowboard skills that you can get creative with and add style to.
I’m going to break this trick down into two parts, the press and the 180. I’ll also show you the progression of this trick, so you practice on the flat ground, mellow slopes and off lips.
The first part of this trick is getting into the press. The key to a good press is being able to move your weight around over your snowboard. For the tail press bend your back leg and move your weight over your tail. A trick to help you get into the press is to reach your back hand down towards the snow and feel the weight of the press evenly on the side of your foot. Having a soft snowboard or a reverse camber board will make pressing much easier.
The next part of this trick is the 180. Start by turning your upper body to face the direction you want to 180 in. With your upper body turned you can now twist your legs and snowboard. This turn and twist motion will get your snowboard around quickly and stop you from spinning past 180. It’s important to turn and face your upper body a full 90 degrees to be able to twist your snowboard a full 180 degrees. To get the 180 into the air do a small ollie out of the tail press. You can continue the butter 180 by landing in a press, turning your upper body and twisting another 180.
If you’re new to pressing your snowboard you can start by practicing on the flat ground. Once you’re comfortable pressing, you can add in the 180. Take this to the next level by practicing nose and tail presses on a mellow slope. You can also twist your board 180 as you ride to get used to the twisting motion. Once you have butter 180’s on a mellow slope dialed, you can find a small lip or roller to butter 180 off.

My name is Kevin Pearce and I'm the creator of Snowboardprocamp. Since 2011 I've been producing snowboard tutorials for beginner to advanced riders. I taught snowboarding for over ten years and it was the best experience of my life. My reason for creating Snowboardprocamp was so that I could share that experience and make snowboarding accessible to people. I was full-time snowboard coach in Whistler B.C for the eight years. I taught on the mountain five days a week, freeriding with students and teaching them tricks in the terrain park. In the terrain park I have experience teaching everything from beginner tricks in the small park to more advanced tricks on larger jumps. I have extensive alpine knowledge, where I took students through secret powder stashes and off cliff drops. I'm also very experienced teaching beginner riders on their first day and progressing them to an advanced level. Whistler was a great place for me to develop my riding and teaching skills because of the size of our mountains, the amount of snow we get each year, and our long season from November to May.
