Getting out of a slump, weight distribution issues
I am having some troubles as I am in a slump with my park skiing. I made some remarkable progress this season, notably it is my first year park skiing. I can ski most straight rails comfortably and am working on spins off. Anyways the past couple times I've hit the park I cannot distribute my weight correctly for the life of me. I am slipping out constantly even on the easy flat rails and cannot figure out how to put more weight on my front ski, even though I know I'm supposed to. Are there any drills that I can do to relearn this technique? Thanks.
Try to learn unnatural slides. In the learning process you'll probably remember certain things maybe you are getting lazy about. I definitely found that after a month or so of really working on unnatural slides, my regular ones were better too
A lot of it is mental i bet. Easy to be scared to catch an edge. Also for down rails it's even more a thing. Just commit. Also adjust as needed. If you're slipping out go more forward even if your brain tells you not to. Sick you're learning rails grab some friends and hike a rail, get in the zone and send er. You got this!!!
Go back to small stuff, regroup work back up and regain confidence we all go through it your not alone.
