Is your problem in staying on the tow once you get on. I find that carrying my speed into the tow helps. Like you just finish your park run and you basically make a wide 180 degree turn up the hill and carry your speed and when you go to grab the rope, it's going around the same speed as you, so it isn't hard. It helps to go behind someone so you dont have to pick the rope off the ground. hope that helps.
dude, if i was abe lincoln in the 1860s, and a bunch of southern states decided to break off, id be like, dude, fucking take them, we dont care.-mnscratchskier
Thats what i always try to do. haul ass into it. If you are going from a stop, try grabbing with one hand in front of you and a hand behind you. that hand position makes for a easy way to hold on to the rail. Worst thing you can do is to let it yank your arms really far forward. thats how shit gets torn, dislocated, generally fucked up.
You sound like this kid I used to coach. He wanted to know why he couldn't finish a run without his legs burning and getting winded. I told him skiing is not easy and he should try exercising in the summer instead of sitting on the couch. He looked at me like he just shit his pants. Sack up pal!
