i started hitting a lot more rails and boxes this year too. Where I live, in wisconsin, I feel like we don't have a lot of good progression parks. When i go out west or east, i always come across these really short boxes and rails that are almost level with the snow. They are a great way to get a feel of how to ride flat on the feature without falling into sharp corners when you catch an edge (usually). If you find these features, take advantage of them. Don't think they are for kids and you look foolish going over them. Don't feel like you have to be on the cannon box 10 feet in the air.
