Ride On rails are Miserable
It is all our local hill has. People keep telling me that learning how to slide rails is easier on ride ons, but I think I'd rather have a gap to be able to hop onto the rail.
ya ride ons suck.. but u have to understand that ride ons are built for snowboarders basically who are a shitload more percent then skiers...

Yeah, last year our park had all ride-ons too. This year they have jumps which are attached to the rail, but skier can air off the jumps onto the rails if we want. So it works out really well this year. I doooo hate ride ons though.
can someone xplain what exactly a ride on is. cuz i went to slide this wide rail yesterday and it totally fucked me up, possibly a ride on?

Yea due, all of our ails are ride ons
Piss on tits, piss on piss, and piss on this. PEACE OUT
ride on's are pointless. it's not like snowboarders *can't* hit a rail off a lip, so why not build rails that everyone can hit. also, ride ons are way too easy for snowboarders anyways... i don't think the point of railslides is to cruise right over them straight. it's not a fucking balance beam.
i didn't come here with pants, and i'm not leaving with pants
I'd say ride on's are a bit easier for beginners in some ways but I like jump on more.
its probably the worst idea ive ever heard of..no joke..if u like broken bones and like..fucking Death then hell..have fun -Naturalbornskier
i just got my rails down and if its not a jump on then you won't learn as fast. i got my rails down in 5 trys and a jump on. i don't think its easy to learn on a ride on
~never be bought. never be sold~
waht the fuck is a ride on, is it like a lip then a rail?
are u a boy or a girl?
oh sorry i didnt mean it offensively.......i just couldnt tell cuz u made these posts about jon or whatever
its when there is no kick onto the rail. It just kinda comes from the ground

You CAN jump on to a ride on rail. I like them.
yea but its hard...what with the weight of the ski and popping
Smoking pot leads to uhh... I forget.
What time is it... saturday?
50 nuts in your mothafuckin' mouth
STEP 1: buy a shovel
STEP 2: build the lip up yourself
STEP 3: fuck everyone who says it sucks, because they are the ones who suck.

Ski Patrol wouldn't let us build lips the shovels. Also there is a table that isn't designed right. It's too close to the top of the hill and it is IMPOSSIBLE to get enough speed. I was towed in my snowboarders, polled, and tucked the whole way down on freshly waxed skiers, there is no way I could clear the damn thing. If I can't clear it, then snowboarders can't clear it. We tried building the lip up a bit more in hope to clear the thing, and Ski Patrol took our shovel away. I guess it's just the shitty reality of skiing on a hill in the suburbs of Chicago.
We have that same problem. Most small mountains don't put the time into calculating the physics of airs and other hits.
better to burn out...
...then fade away
it's when you ride on to the rail. you just ski, or board and then your on it, no lip no air, just ride onto the rail
we have a half and half, we have a jump, with the rail immediately following it, u usually get pop onto the rail, but there is no gap
