You should consider some formal race training if you are doing skiercross. Half the game is getting out ahead of the pack so you don't get taken out or held up. From the contests I've seen the skiers that have a racing background usually get the early lead and win.

I will note that this is a dangerous sport and you have a high chance of a major knee injury doing it. You are most likely going to compete on a course designed for boarders which is dangerous for skiers because they get way more speed and air. Bindings do not help when somebody comes crashing into your legs. Almost all the good skiers on my former mountain have stopped competing in skiercross because of the injury rate.
