Default Improve your skills!

Hello everybody!

I want to hear about your tips about sidehilling,hillclimbing, in the trees and so on!
I ofc consider myself as a god rider, but on this point I havent adventured it much...

I want to hear this because here in sweden we dont get the chance to ride as big mountains as you guys! You know I have to prepare for my trip to BC...

I would be glad if you could post videos and pictures and describe.
Im sure its not just me that finds this helpful,, lets discuss
technique

Cheers from sweden //Anders

Nothing can replace seat time. Get out and ride and practice practice practice. That, and try to ride with those that are better than you. You will have no choice but to step up your game. Watch where and how they postion their body on theor sleds to make it do what they want it to do. Enjoy your trip!

There is a DVD called "Schooled" by Brett Rasmussen and Chris Burandt who are two of the best backcountry riders on the planet. This is the best instructional video I've ever seen.

You can get it at - deviantsled.com or - ride rasmusussen style.com

Yes I am going to watch it..

Im thinking of to post pictures here and show you all some situations in riding, how I did and ask you how I should do..

My plan is to use my surrounding, when we dont have the best places around the house so Im thinking about to let the fantasy get me into some sticky things..

Don't worry about the bad English, we have a guy here named H2snow, were used to it. I apologize for him in advance.
