Do you guys have any tricks to hit them ? Going faster maybe ?
I always feel like Im gonna hurt myself if I keep doing them ... maybe I just dont get it.
And ... how come they become sticky like that ?

_Ryan_make sure your edges are detuned. i wouldn't necessarily advise going faster as this could lead to a huge slam if you still stick. Avoid said rail or box for the day, usually sticky features are dependent on weather/ paint wear, so it should change over time. Not worth taking a big slam to hit a shitty sticky rail.
.CJ.I notice that a lot of the most difficult rails and the end of them are very sticky at my resort.
Like someone said above rub some snow on it, next time I go up I will bring some wax and I'll try to remember to post back here.
BortyJust throw some snow on there. Snow is wet. You should be good unless the rails are super rusty, or burred to hell.
.CJ.The rails don't slide well because a lot of people come off early so the paint probably hasn't completely come off. If I just scrape my skis on them would that help?
ShawleenSomething (no offense) i dont know what park rangers are paid for ... if the same rail is still sticky after few days, i guess someone didnt do his job correctly.
snophieI don't know about the parks you ski in, but the park crew put so much work into making the take offs/ landings smooth and the positioning of them on rails and jumps behind the scenes. We should be praising them highly, they make landing tricks easier for us! i think they should be paid more (no offence)

Work in a park for a day and i promise these words will never come out of your mouth again
