if you are interested in park at all if you can't ride switch it really limits the amount of tricks you can do. Lots of them have you coming out riding switch.
I say after your 2nd season, of course depends on how many days you can get out. You should have switch on lock for green runs. I can ride our easy blacks, technically and I look a bit mechanical but I can ride them, but no way as comfortable as I can in my normal stance. Again some of our blacks are blue/greens else where
I could never load/unload a chair switch.
So I think this is something that will benefit riders to know. Plus re-learning to ride switch can translate into becoming a better rider in your normal stance Reg or Goofy
