So I've been skiing on some new 184cm skis I bought and found that my calves and shin muscles got really sore after a day of skiing. Also it seems like I kept getting into the back seat when normally that doesn't seem to be a huge problem. Earlier in the season I skied Mammoth for 3 days on the same model in 176's and didn't have an issue with leg pain. I've been skiing at Snow Valley here in CA and it gets very slushy very quickly but it didn't seem remarkably worse than Mammoth was when I went there.
Would any of the following be a big cause of this?
1. Top boot strap on too tight? I was cranking everything down because of the sloppy snow.
2. Ski not waxed since I bought them and are catching in the soft snow?
3. I just suck
Does this make any sense?
