Need some help wih rails
I'm having trouble with certain rails/boxes, specifically:
1. Flat Downs
2. C's that spin the way I'm not used to
On flat downs, a little after I hit the down part, my feet slide out from under me, and I fall. Obviously, the problem is simple, lean farther downhill. Problem is, I'm not used to having to lean so far downhill, anyone have tips?
On the C's. I'm not sure what my problem is. I spin to my left, so I slide rails/boxes with my right leg/foot forward. I'm used to C's where I hop on 90 degrees, and my tips are higher/on the outside, and my tails are lower/inside. So I'm having trouble with C's that curve the other way (opposite of the way the real letter C looks), like when my tips are lower/inside. Hopefully that makes a little sense.
Thanks to anyone who can help.
With the flat down you just gotta keep practicing and prepare to shift your weight forward at the kink, as ya already know thats the problem try a wider lower stance and just practice and focus and leaning forward at the kink
on the c's if youre falling off to the inside go at it with more speed, but if youre going over the top try to land with your skis at the same angle of the box and if its a rail at about 10 degrees.
on the fd's it might feel strange but you really need to get youre weight foward and try coming out switch. for some reason it seemed to be easier for me than going back fowards.

Yah, I almost always come off sitch, it's a lot easier since you already have a tiny bit of momentum left to spin in that direction from jumping on. Thanks, I'll give those tips a try.
get used to sliding just plain old downs, it'll make flat downs easier. For c's I go in at decent speed butaim to have my feet on the inside coping of the rail. Helps for me a lot, just ride it out like a c-rail not a box.
for the c box you want to have more of your nose on the box because it will help you from not slipping off plus play with the speed, but for the flat down just have a lower wider stance.
For the C box make sure you are hitting it as you would like an urban set up rail, and if the c is going to the left, then hit it like a lipslide, and make sure you have some speed, not too much not too little and if you have a little too much just try to lean into the C and really use your centripital force on the bank of the C.
Be prepared to get fucked by the long dick of the law.

on the flat down the way i do it is like psuhing with mi front shoulder forward that makes me shift my weight
skiing in Chile is sick!!
on flat down rails i just have a wide stance and speed throught the rail when you go fast the kink is really easy but if you go slow it is way harder
