i find that hiking the park actually helps you learn shit. let's say you're thinking of trying that one trick that you really wanna be able to do, and you're about to pussy out, you stop and think "fuck man, i just hiked this shit just so i can go and do some lame ass trick that ive been doing for years? fuck that, grow some balls and get er done."
thats how i see it anyways
oh and hiking bc for some untracked lines is so worth it
I always hike rails and jumps. It really allows you to concentrate on the trick you want and you learn much faster because you get more hits in on a single day. Now for regualar skiing, I ski in the northeast and my mountain is a good size 2,100 vertical feet. So their are some good area to hike into and ski some trees, and I will if their is fresh pow pow on the ground, I would never hike for groomers.
Today I saw kids hiking to hit a jump, but they hiked like 3/4 of the hill. total waste of time, but I like hiking for rails to get tricks down.
Idk if so much as people being lazy or spoiled as much as i can sit there and hit one box or jump all day and not get bored of it.
like my mom doesnt ride park so i dont expect her to sit there and hike a mile long run instead of ride the chair, but she would be willing to hike a little for some pow.
