I just found this site yesterday and figured I would post to introduce myself and see if you guys have any tips for me.
Yesterday was my first day ever on skis and I had a blast so I am going back again later today for round 2. I am usually a snowboarder and work with the patrol at my local mountain, I am also a collegiate hockey player and people had told me that being able to skate would help me. I had been meaning to try skiing since the start of this season and finally decided to grab some rental gear and do it yesterday.
my first 2 runs were a little shaky but I was able to do a wedge and turn in a wedge. by the end of the day I was linking turns going down our black diamonds, I wasn't going wicked fast but I was able to link them with good technique most of the time.
Even tho our season ends out here pretty soon I am looking into picking up my own gear.
what are some good brands? any tips for the new guy?
