Rainbow and Kinked rails
can someone tell me how to do both these types of rails, like how to approach them and judge my balance and just what to do on them in general, coz i reckon there hard, i got smashed on a rainbow earleir this year three timmes in a row then gave up, coz i thought i was going to get hurt.
i mean the kinked rails that go like this sort of, like two kinks...
_/- sort of you know. like across then down then across again.
thanks, some advice would be great as im going skiing for a week next week and i want to master them!
sweet im going to bed now, peace dudes.

if the jump onto the rainbow is good than just hit it like a normal rail, but look at the sky just above the top of the rail - you'll keep on it that way (same with tabletop rails).
if the jump onto it isn't good than go at it with some speed than do the motions of a hockey stop just before the jump and slide onto the rail (make sure youre skis are perpendicular to the rail when you hit it (you'll probably have to lean back a bit or you'll catch your edges (also make sure the rail isn't out of the snow before you try this). with the hockey stop type thing you can actually get onto lots or rails that you couldn't before. (somehow i managed to get one a small tabletop rail with no jump onto it at all and it was pretty much just flat to almost right up ( _/ )
for kinks - just hit the rail like you normally would (keep low on the rail for the first part) than when you hit the downhill part keep on the rail and extend your legs down to keep in contact with the rail while staying loose - when you had the 2nd kind (back to flat) be ready for it. look at the end of the rail, take the impact of the kink and make sure you get your skis flat on the last straight part and not just slam into the flat... yea... that's enough talking for me.
