Coaching Tip: Skis & boards that are “railed” or “edge-high” are dangerous and negetively impact skill development. They may also lead to incorrect interpretations of how your skiing or riding is progressing. The more control and input you have over your own equipment on a day to day basis will improve your feel on the snow and help you develop a closer relationship between your performance and the condition of your equipment. Skiing & riding is more FUN when your setup is correct.
