My favorite trick is a 720. The first time that I tried it I landed it and it felt so good. I love doing 720s.

as much as we're "supposed to" say that this thread has been done many times, i never get tired of thinking about this.  favorite is probably pow ollies.  anywhere, any time, i live for that shit.  cliffs, pillows, spines, gullies.. along a single high speed and flowing run... ahh man, nothing like it.

aside from that big one, looking back i tend to like doing poked tailgrabs, floaty front and back 1s, front 3s, switch front 1s, and switch front 3s.  and lots of groomer sprays, pow slashes (#2 fav.), and tripods as of late, as well as a few "butters" on top of rollers, kinda like a press.  switch front 1 tailpress back 1 out.  and just ollies.  side hits and little trannies.  love hitting a tranny the right way (...lawl).  just fun little things.  airblasting, you know?

edit: miller flips are also super fun, especially when it's on something where there's a drop on the other side, like a stump above a pillow or drop or wherever.

For me, it's the best one I've got, which is making it all the way down the trail without falling...not too shabby, eh?!?  Wink

My favorite trick is probably just pow buttering, or any form of messing around in the pow. Pow butters can be done pretty much anywhere at anytime. You don't need a huge kicker to do them, don't need a rail, it's just done in the middle of the run.

The trick I most want to learn is the muller trick where he does a japan/method-like grab and does a cork 7. It seems like its a cork/rodeo thing that he kinda holds out. It's just such a smooth trick.

Buttering on snow and spinning on boxes...anything where it looks just effortless and clean.

I would love to be able to do a floaty back 1 off a big (~20ft, ok not too big) jump though.  Also a clean method.  One can wish...

Totally agree about the floaty 1s and 3s.  It feels good to stomp a big spin but it's so much work...there's just something about a massive 180 over a gap where you can just relax and enjoy the ride.

No handers are probably my favourite trick to do. I could stomp so many in one run.

^^^ Is there a trick to that?

One thing I really want to do is a huge backside 180 over a 100 foot gap in the backcountry. Also, it wouldn't be bad to be able to do a double cork every once in a while.

Agreed, something about a tweaked, held out method just makes me feel so good when I land it. It's just such an awesome grab when done correctly, and never gets old to watch. Everytime I watch a Muller method or a Lando method, it just sends chills.

I also want to have an entire season in the wilderness of Jackson, BC, or AK and just build huge megabooters in the backcountry just to try new things.

Almost blew out my knee last year by hitting a bump bombing a run... thought the landing was a little longer, not ten feet away... not to mention the flat below was about 5-10 feet down, so basically I carried 30-40 feet while dropping another 10-15 feet onto flat...

fml right, luckily only ended up with a huge bone bruise...

just make the 5s look good and they can be one of the best tricks to watch when snowboarding. A clean backside rodeo 5 is one of my favorites to watch...
