Same here. I knew how to ride it the second time around. You just give yourself a very slight push into the carpet and that's it. I now prefer the carpet over skating into position. I fall at least 3 times a season while skating into position for the lift. It's so easy to lose footing especially if the lifties are too lazy to maintain the runway which is usually the case.
