Tips for sliding boxes
ya so i'm just starting out in park, do you guys have any tips for sliding boxes? thanks
When your just learning go at the box with it between your legs. Jump and turn your legs 90. Dont turn your whole body because you will spin off the box after you get on. Keep solid stance, dont stand straight up, look to the end of the rail. Speed is key.
Once you have the sliding down the start to disaster onto it.
thanks dude, how do i get a good pop onto the box?
jump with your legs? make sure not to slam onto the rail cause you will slip out.

when you pop and go 90 make sure you commit. if you only go 45 or lean back you will fall on your ass. its actually easier to go 100% than to "take it easy"
focus on the end of the box as well. that helps.

just jump, land smooth with bent knees and a wide stance, look at end of rail, keep shoulders straight and lean forwardish. o yea go faster than you think you need to.

If your just learning then the boxes youre trying probably will be ride on or small jumps so you wont need to worry about it. When you work your way up all it takes is a little jump to get onto rails.
and remember that edges will not help you out so you need to balance
wide base! lean foward
i like pow pow!
i like to go at it head on, and do a spread eagle. i enjoy the feeling of breaking my nuts

Make sure you have your weight in your front foot and your skis flat. Look at the end of the box and spot your landing. If you want to land switch look uphill and turn your shoulders uphill, don't turn your lower body, it will follow. Most important, have fun!
good tips are to have good speed, look at the end of the feature, get low and loose, make sure you have the boxe straight ahead of you before popping on it.
dull your edges and dont lean back or you will fall on your ass
You will rarely fall forwards when you are first starting out. You are going to be afraid of it and lean away from the box, slip out and slide the rest of it on your ass. SO....try to avoid that by concentrating on staying forward.
