Base edge bevel

So I picked up a Proto CT this year and took it out a few times. I'm thinking of putting a 1 degree base bevel on it but I'm a little concerned what that's going to do for the rest of the mountain. I ride Ice Coast but I want to enjoy more then the jumps and pipe this year. Ideally I'd like to do this without wrecking myself, but beggars can't be choosers now .

I'm on the east coast as well ride mostly in VT, mostly freeride very little park. I've got 1.5 on the base and side. You should be fine with 1 degree. There is a thread on here all about base and side bevels with a lot of good info in it....use the search

1 degree base is actually the standard bevel that 99% of shops do if you don't specifically say otherwise. It will be totally fine for any type of riding you are doing at a resort. I regularly ride my Proto CT with 1/1 base/side bevels on handrails, corrugated plastic pipes, lacquered, tree trunks jib, big jumps, pipe, spins (follow link for youtube video demonstration of me riding with 1/1... or even 0/0 with the double box jib).

If you are trying a real handrail in a city (i.e. one that has not been polished) then you might want something more than 1/1.
