Mr.LumpyjumblesFor bonus points, try doing all three in one run: carving, park, and trees.
Nah, but really I've never been only focused on one thing. I love lapping the park, but you'll never catch me there if there's any amount of fresh snow in the woods. Why not use the whole mountain to have fun on? And sometimes I will dip into the woods right off the chair, cut into the park to hit a hail rail, and carve all the way back down to the lift.
clindblomskierI’m in a funk rn. Been having commitment issues and haven’t been learning new tricks (think eating it 15+ times trying to backslide a tank started this) recently. Ski’d my first proper out of bounds tree run today in one foot of fresh and I’ve honestly never had so much fun. Carving has been my thing recently. I’m losing love for the park and I don’t like it. Anyone else not feeling hucking their meat these days?
KevskiYeah man been there too - let it flow and don’t force anything.
I honestly still love the park. But I’ll do a couple laps each day and that’s probably it. Side hits and dragging rollers and blasting trees and hitting cliffs and touring are equally fun.
You don’t want to end up forcing yourself to be a certain type of skier because you think it’s cooler or you feel pressure to get certain tricks. You can just go ski.
larilinesignBeen there. What broke me out of it (did it first with skating then with skiing/snowskating) was that I started to wear a shit load of pads and experimenting with old school tricks and transitions. Gave me the balls and wonderment to get back after it.
Weighs chiller on you when the falls don't hurt as bad, so you get up laughing it off and trying it again with a clear head... rather than reeling and raging and slamming again and again.
Takes a lot of stress out of it.
