I'm sure you already know, but the progression is to learn a 180 first, then move on to a 360 and so forth. I learned backside 180 first, and moved on to bs 360.

It is strange how much scarier it is to commit to a 360...even though you're landing regular (not switch). Funny thing is it took me long after the bs 360 to master the frontside 180 (still have never even attempted a frontside 360...hopefully, this'll be the year).

the other thing is you kinda should learn to do them on relative hard pack because deeper snow doesn't give you the speed for a decent jump that'll allow you to do a full rotation (even if the snow's deep and there's a packed down track, you're still going to probably land in someones bomb hole...ends up being the same).
