I work at a ski resort as a lifty and wanted to do patrol next season. I talked to the man in charge and he invited me out to ski with them one day to test my skills and what-have-you. Everything was great and I skied like a champ except I faltered in the bumps. I was told I did a good job and had what it took but I did need to work on riding bumps so I am asking you guys on some advice about how to tackle these bumps like a boss.
Unfortunately I only have one pair of skis and I am mounted dead center which seemed to work to my disadvantage but that is me just making excuses. The problems I felt was mainly fatigue. Over worked my legs so my movements got lazy which led to me being thrown off balance and having to wave hands in the air to get steady again. It was apparent I didn't have bumps mastered. Tomorrow I am off to get some practice in them and ski around with patrol again before the end of the season to show my improvment. Even if I don't have it mastered, it still shows I am a hard worker and am driven.
Tips on tackling bumps? I do get free rentals so I might rent so I am on skis thats are not center mounted. Suggestions on that?
