warm up lap with light, dynamic stretching is a good idea. regular static stretching does nothing though and in some cases has been proven to actually worsen your risk of injury. it also has no effect on muscle soreness. (i just wrote a research/term paper on this, got a lot of shit to back it up)
If you're just running park laps all day, ride the groomers into the park, check the jumps and stuff to make sure that nothing has changed much. Nothing shittier than coming in the next morning, and hitting a jump with a 10 ft bigger gap that the day before.
thanks for the replies.. haven't skied much park and always just passed by and entered but gonna be bummin' this year in avoriaz, france and the park is really close to the aparment so i'm guessing i'll hit the park more...
Stupid mobile ns. I always move around in the first lift line and carve some groomers on the way to the park. We always start out in the small park and I usually just straight air and 270 out to warm up.
i learned to just start with your dialed tricks and move up as the day progresses and you get comfortable... i hate ruining the day by going for something to big on one of my first runs then eatin shit hard
Stretching is really good for your body, just incase you pull something. I usually jump and job around the groomers and other runs on the way to the park. I just bump around, pop off little hits, tweaks, butters, little spins. Once I get into the park, start small, your basic tricks. You can usually tell when you're ready to start amping yourself up. Then just go and enjoy yourself
If I'm familiar with the park, I'll straight air stuff first. I seldom, pretty much never spin first run. Speed can change way too much from day to day, groomer could have altered the lip too much. or who knows what.
