Tips for learning how to butter snowboarding. Butters are a super fun ground trick which combing the skills of pressing and spinning. When learning butters first start on the flat ground, then take them to a mellow slope, after that start getting creative with your butters, and adding them into tricks.
To get a good butter you first need to be really comfortable doing nose and tail presses. For the tail press there are three things that happen. Moving your hips over your tail, bending your back leg while you straightening your front leg. Do the same for the nose press, hips over your nose, front leg bent, back leg straight. Get comfortable pressing on the flat ground then bring them to a mellow slope where you can practice your nose and tail presses with a bit of speed.
Next you want to add spinning to the butter. To start you need to wind your body up and rotate in the direction you want to spin. As you rotate get into your press and lock in the butter. Keep your head looking around to keep the butter going. Once you have the butter dialed on the flat ground it’s time to take it to a mellow slope.
When butter snowboarding on the slope decide whether you’re going to butter on your nose or tail. I prefer tail. Start the butter by winding up and rotating to get the spin going. At the same time get into your tail press with your back knee bent, front leg straight and hips over your tail. Keep your head looking around to keep the spin going. Once you have butters dialed start getting creative with it, like buttering into 180’s and anything else you can come up with.

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.
