Default Jumping onto a rail/box

My main problem currently with jibbing is having to jump over a gap onto the rail or getting onto the rail skater style. Today I was at the park of a resort I go to only once/twice a year and nearly of all the jibs there had around a 1-2 meter gap between the kicker and the jib.

The rails themselves are not the problem (if the snow went straight to the rail I would be fine), but it's the small jump onto the rail that I find really challenging to the point where I spend about 5 minutes shitting it before I find the courage to give the rail a shot, but end up coming/bailing off the rail straight away.

Any tips?
