Is it normal to spin differant ways on rails and jumps
So I would consider myself a beginner park skier and I just recently learned rails. My mountain has only a couple features on it so it’s hard to get good at something quick. Anyways, I was practicing 90’s on a box and decided to take it to the rail so I did but it felt really weird when I was doing the rails and boxes. I realized that I was spinning to the right to get onto them. I have never spun right before when doing 360s and 180s. I don’t know why but it feels natural to spin right on rails and left on jumps for me. Was just wondering if this was normal or if I’m doing something wrong.
I don't think your doing anything wrong, most people i know spin onto rails and spin on jumps the same way, but I know a few people who do it opposite like you. Really it just matters if you have good form when sliding the boxes and rails, which way you get onto a box or rail doesn't matter as much. Just keep doing what you need to progress and have fun!
sliding a rail is like riding a skateboard, I know a couple of people who spin left but slide left foot forward. I even know a couple people who skate regs but grind skis goofy. everyone has different preferences just see what feels right
Nothing is “normal” about skiing. Just do whatever feels natural.
Skating I’m left foot forward and for rails I go opposite which isn’t quite what you have going on but I just think it’s whatever is comfortable
Keep learning rails that way. Once you get better you will have an easy time learning going left onto rails
first off G, its differEnt . next is to ski and do what ever you want to do on that rail . visualize it and play it out in your mind once or twice than fuckin give "er
