You know what, I think I may reconsider twin tips. Can a trickster here tell me how hard it is to learn how to ride rails like this:
I really want to learn how to ride the terrain park, but I didn't want to dive in and buy twin tips already, any help on the difficulty of learning?
That rail, would be rhater advanced, i wont say that i am great at rails, but i can do them. You would start off, sliding boxes, then graduate to mailboxes, then on to flat bar rails, then kinked. that one looks like a C rail, so you would learn C boxes, the C rails. C rails arnt very much harder then regular rails i have found though.
I make it sound harder then it probably is. But in reality, it all varies from person to person. Some people will hit their first rail and clear it, and the same day will go and clear the gnarliest rail in the park, others (kinda like me) will take a season and a half before the whole rail thing "clicks" its all in the balance.
I would invest in a good pair of twins, you can get twins now that will not "go to waste" all mountian, but can hold up in the park. another benefit of twins, is you can ski backwards, and if you mess up, and land backards, or off axis, you havea much better chnce of skiing out, instead of eating it.
Look into some Karmas for all mountain park, public enemies
and for more park, you can get fugatives for cheap. or ther eare many more companies that make twins pick up this months issue of freeskier, they review all the twins.
