Just start out at slower speeds, pick your lines and dont get stuck on the flats.
I wanted to at least attempt Hogsback again yesterday but my husband refused
. He's still having trouble even riding straight so I pretty much had to force him to even do Skyline with me. And for how new we both are to it, I didn't really want to attempt it alone. Once I told him how much steeper it was than Skyline I just didn't bring it up again. The top of Skyline wasn't groomed yesterday though so it was still pretty deep and awesome. And if you go down the Exhibition/Promenade side when it forks, it was about knee deep yesterday.
I won't be trying anything around trees until I can figure out toe side without wiping out.
