I've been skiing my whole life, but I never got into it until last year.  I love to race down the hills that I can get to, which is basically shit from being on the east coast.  This year I came to college and met a bunch on newschoolers, which is how I got on this site.

Some of them have been doing park for years, but me, I rarely even go into the terrain park.  I know no tricks and have only done a couple jumps for fun.

I wanna go out with my friends here, but I'm super embarrassed at what might happen on the slopes.  I was thinking of practicing during winter break and going out with them in January but I have no where to start.  I might as well be stuck on ice. Any advice?
