SegsxiAlso, if you truly want to commit to getting better at park do you miss out on pow days to ski in the park? I feel like I want to be better park but whenever there is fresh I skip the park but all of the park skiers who are good I see are still in the park even on pow days.
Coming from an inner city hill where the park is the only thing that's mildly entertaining, whenever I go to a mountain with fresh snow I won't step in the park, idk how y'all in the mountains can stay out of the trees and heavy snow. Getting good in the park (from my experience at least) isn't entirely about being in the park all the time. Having used to snowboard in the park I learned a lot in my first year of skiing. On my point of being in the park all the time doesn't make you better at park: I have a friend (I'll call him Jerry) who was a good skier, he was out at least 15 hours a week alongside our other buddies, however Jerry didn't progress as he couldn't commit to taking a fall. The reason other friends and I progressed like we did and Jerry didn't was because we were ready to taco a rail, chip teeth, and break our fingers. Also I don't know about everyone else, but lately I've been riding switch more than forwards so centre mounting has been extremely beneficial to me.
Hope my essay helps?
