Don't sweat it too much, even if you fall coming off it won't be a big deal. You'll figure it out by the end of your first day. If you've never done a T-bar before and go anywhere that has one you can't avoid those are worse. Not sure how steep the indoor parks are you've ridden but be prepared for steeper, and muggles I don't know if y'all deal with those at indoor parks or not.
Never done a T-bar, the indoor slope i use uses poma lifts.. which i really didn't like using at first, but i've now got use to it haha. The slope, i think, is around 15% steep at the top, but i can imagine the ones on the mountain are steeper. I'm still learning all the lingo so not sure what a muggles is.. (sorry prob a silly question)
lander91 and The Deacon- Thanks will keep those tips in mind!
It's a metal pole with a hook a the end which goes round your thigh (or in-between your legs if on skis) standing with one foot strapped in the board it tows you up by sliding on the snow. Hope that makes sense haha.
They are new like me, although a couple of them are a level above me in the lessons. With this trip, it includes an instructor... although i'm not to sure what they will be teaching us, or if they are just there for support as its our first winter trip. Either way i'm hoping the instructor will be on the lift with us to help! Been watching videos on youtube about chairlifts... they make it look really easy, but i know that it'll be completely different once i'm there haha just going to try not to think about it too much... and make sure i have the highest insurance cover haha
Thanks everyone else for the advice! am hopefully going to confirm my place on the trip this week! exciting!!
Not sure if the vids you've been watching mention this or not, but use your eyes...where you look is where you will go.
Glance down while about to unload if you must (to feel secure with your hind foot placement) but keep your eyes up and ahead in the direction you wish to go. Also, relax and breathe.
Don't know about the resort you're going to, and conditions are always iffy, but I can't imagine you won't be stoked being on a real mountain vs. indoor. Just relax, have fun and I guarantee you will get that bug and be hooked.
