Im never the first bird on the slope as a result when I go skiing things are usually already worked over a good bit. Now when I do my NASTAR racing thang, the course gets pretty rutted and skiied off. The ruts are not necessarily the line I want to take and so I often go above or below my actual line of choice since I dont want to catch an edge on the now 3-4" deep ruts by cutting across them. What to do? Should I be following those ruts since the fact that they are so carved-in might indicate that they are the best line? And even if they are the best line, I find it very difficult to ski effectively while be "guide railed" by others' path. Or, is it just the inevitable problem one faces as the day progresses and I should simply try to get out there earlier?
