So yesterday I skied for the first time at Sunday River on my new AR7's, I skied just regular terrain for the entire day, and then around 1:30pm, we were told about a small set up with some jibs. Of course we went to go check them out, and they were not big at all, maybe 1 down rail, a flat rail and 2 boxes, nothing special.
So I attempt to hit the down rail first. I hop on, and slide it but get caught up and end up falling forward. So I get up, gather my poles and stuff, and move on, no big deal. Next was a flat rail, it was maybe 2 feet off the round if not less. Now I've progressed in rails for 3 years now, not saying I'm really good or anything but I can do basic tricks, like 270 out both ways, some switch up's, maybe a k fed if I'm lucky. So I'm not even thinking about hitting this rail its just a natural reaction. But as soon as I get both my skis on the rail, my skis did not move and my upper body flew forward, smashing my shoulder into the rail, It hurt like a motha fucka.
Two of my friends were with me and saw it happen, they said I didn't do anything wrong or strange, so I'm just wondering why this could have happened. Maybe the edges on my brand new skis, or something, I really don't know....
If you have any comments I'd appreciate it
