This season I made it one of my goals to learn how to ride switch comfortably. I eventually learned how ride switch pretty well (looking over both shoulders and staggering feet properly). And I learned cab 1's off of decent sized jumps later on in the season.
Anyways, I spin to the left and wanted to start working on sw spins to the left instead of right only. I would feel very unstable coming into a jump switch on 171 skis (I am roughly 6 ft. and usually ski 187 YLES which were stolen). I felt like I would be out of control when I got to the lip and I had a hard time noticing if my skis were staggered properly.
My main question is if a ski significantly too short plays a big role when riding into/taking off of jumps switch or if the bigger problem is that I am not that experienced enough yet riding into/taking off of jumps while looking over my (weaker) left shoulder. I am fairly new when it comes to switch takeoffs, but because I had my switch skiing down well, I think my ski length could be an issue too.
Sorry if there is an obvious answer, I'm not a big park guy.
