How to hit rails

published Dec 2015 - 4,544 views

This week I focused on the correct way to hit a rail on skis. Make sure if you are just learning how to do this or you have been doing this but incorrectly that you hit the rail both ways. So make sure you learn to hit it with your left foot forward and your right foot forward. I talked about how to go from never hitting any rails to learning how to hit urban style kinked rails.

I touch on the way your body should be positioned coming into the rail and how you body should be positioned on the rail.

I then go into how to fix a common problem I see which is getting off the rail but not being able to turn 90 degrees left or right. Another problem I commonly see and talked about is slipping back when you fall on.

Lastly, I taught how to hit urban and kinked rails which isn't all that difficult with the right amount of practice and patience.

I hope you guys found this helpful, I will see you next week.
