First day of skiing in the park
soo i just skied 2 days in the park... first time ever doin stuff, and i wanted to know how i did for my first time.
by the end of the day i could do the box and also the kink box...
buut also, what could u guys do after your first day of park?
pretty good for how fast most people progress but if you can do a box then you can also do a rail
That's actually really good, keep it up!
my first week of park consisted of cruising around rolling over jumps, and going straight down boxes
shud i try the rail nxt time?
If you feel ready, personally I learnt on rails, because I had to commit or else I would nut myself
try w/e your comfortable with... dont fall subject to peer pressure either.. thats how you get hurt lol
i think the first time i ever went through the park ever was when i was like 8 or 9 or so. and it was really snowy and i didnt have my goggles on so i put them on while heading towards the jump, and i finally put them on like right on the start of the jump and i freaked out when i got in the air, and i started kicking my legs, and i actually landed it. it was like a 35 ft. table and after i stopped everyone that passed me was like sick trick dude, and stuff. so i think i did pretty good my first day.
thats good for a first day. I just hit small tables, 20-25ft. just straight air. i did not even touch boxes for ever.
did u actually turn your skis on the box
oops that was a haha to the 8 yr old story
and yea, i popped up on the both boxes with my skis completely turned, so that i slid down them side ways
Well just pretend the rail is the exact same thing as the box.
but wont it be wayyy harder to balance?
I don't know if your mountain has one, but try to find a mini park with some small flat rails with no kinks. They aren't intimidating so you'll commit and learn quick.
well right now the park only has kinked rails
so i guess im gonna have to try that... heyy if i fall its no big deal, just gotta get back up and try again.
so the first time i tried the box, i twisted my skis while i was on it, and i fell hardcore, my whole upper leg is like black, its sweeet looking for sure
its in ur pro... haha niice, im loved
wait, what did i just say,
i meant, ~~im loved, niice~~
thats not too bad go for spins and stuff next time
I had a great first day. I did so much better then I expected on my first day.
try jumps, get a feel for being in the air, then start trying tricks. dont be afraid to crash, cause its just snow it wont hurt that bad
yah keep it up it took me a while to get over leaning back on box's / rails congrats ........ The only diff with rails is leaning forward a bit more
if you fall you fall. you don't have to worry about your children
i absolutely ate it on my first box for the season but then i tried it again and stomped it
I'VE BEEN SKIING FOR 19 YEARS AND I'M STILL PERFECTING MY DAFFY. DAMN GIRLS!!!
I'VE BEEN SKIING FOR 20 YEARS AND I'M STILL PERFECTING THE DAFFY.
thats really good for your first day. in my opinion, i think rails are easier than boxes. i dont really know why, but there just easier to grind for me, so yes you should try them next time.
i can do boxes perfectly fine but i cant do rails for my life...i continue to try but it just hasnt worked out yet. good luck with it though im sure you can do it.
i could do small rails. i already knew how to do 180's and 360's
my first year of park was straight down boxes, 180's and straight airs
not bad, takes other people a lot longer
same with me i couldnt commit to turning onto the box
i cant get my 270 ons.. i can do 3s off smaller little bumps but i cant get a 270 onto a box.. i get like a little more than a 180 and die
thats like me. i like get to 180 decide im not gonna be balanced and try to go back, which is way worse than just going for it.
Yeah, that's ill dudette! I learned on rails 1st...that first day I got the nasty full left hip and thigh bruise haha I was used to rollerblading and kept putting my feet out ahead of me you know? but definitely when u start hitting rails the most helpful advice I can think of is line up so the rail is centered between ur legs as u approach then when ur sliding focus on the end of the rail. Good luck!!
i don't remember my first day in the park i was that good. i think i hit my head. not sure though
not to jack the thread, cuz this will help you out as well...for a smooth 270, carve in a lil from one side (the side oppo. of the way you spin) and prewind that thing up, then commit, land and let your momentum carry you around. you'll know how far off the side to start by where you land of the rail/box...trial and error....
and btw...you are shockingly sessy in your profile.
well, you certainly kiked my ass for your first time in the park. my first day consisted of straight airs of the smallest jumps, and ATTEMPTING a few small rails and boxes. It took me a few trips up to get the hang of it. So overall, you should be pretty satisfied. : )
i dont recomend doing rails your third time in the park but whatever you fell comfortable with,
i think thats his way of calling you sexy
my first day in park or tryin rails and stuff was the first snow last fall we got 3/4 inches, i cut down my firemans pole from my rotting tree fort and moved it to my front yard. we put cyinder blocks all over it and put a crow bar in its back and stuck it into the ground. it was like 12 ft long i tried it on my racing skis cause my twins hadnt come in yet. my and my friend hit it for a good 5 hours not knowing at all what we were doin. it was really skinny like 1 1/2 inch skinniest rail ive ever done. I slide it like 4 times and came out switch once and thought it was the shit. that was a fun night. then I just jumped into the terrain park fell alot on 10 ft flat boxes tried a weiny rail or two and jsut kept at it. if the rail is a flat bar as apposed to round then you have nothin to worry about the only thing thats diff for rails is you truely HAVE to turn a full 90 onto it, and you have to worry about lineing urslef up to it more so you dont go off on one side
the only time its really hard to do balance on rails i think is if you go to slow. get a decent amount of speed and look at the end of the rail. it kinda sucks if you dont have a straight rail, just commit and you should be fine
good job, once you get comfortable try everything, or else you'll def. regret not trying it, i've been doing it this year, and it's been working out so far :/
yeah, doing rails slow is sooo hard. fast slides are the best way to start.
