SundayWorked full time and went to school full time, and taught myself how to ski on shitty rentals, and got all the basics down. No instructor because I used to work lift ops at bachelor and listened and watched them teach all day. Then I jacked myself up, so I'm looking to further progress. Sorry to sound like a snob but I don't feel like I'm out of the learning stage if I've only been out one season, and am still learning things like riding switch (which seems harder to me than hitting little boxes and small park stuff). And having the gear seems easier than forking out down the road.

treebeardno, but you should learn how to actually ski before you start hitting the park.
theabortionatorI agree although I think you can learn both with each other. That said there are plenty of people that learn to ski a bit then stay in the park and couldnt make a proper turn if their lives depended on it.
A lot of people out there never truly learn the proper technique. Almost crash skiing to the park and sometimes between features. But they can do a bunch of different tricks.
