I think Mean Joe nailed this one. Simple, concise and dead on.
Me I was to ill informed and nieve and just went out and did it. Now that I'm learning park I'm taking this very same approach and just applying it to a different part of the sport.
Don't build up expectations of flying down all the runs. I took me about 3 outings to become beginner proficient. For many not all it takes a few days of riding to really click and then be comfortable on the green and blue runs. Keep using good form and you will progress quickly and safely.
Enjoy it is a blast.
