Hitting street rails?

Hey guys. This coming winter I want to grind this street rail up at my school thats on an 8 or 9 set and I was just wondering what you guys reccomend doing. I was thinking it would be a lot easier to get into a bs boardslide on it than 50-50. I was also thinking about covering the stairs with snow until I feel comfortable doing it. Also should I wax it? Thanks guys.

Dont go hitting street rails unless you can do fs boards, bs boards, bs & fs lips, 50-50's, nose presses, tail presses, 270's on/off, 180's on/off. In other words, if your not comfortable with park dont hit a street rail, your just asking for trouble (as in hurting yourself).

All revolves around what your comfortable with doing. If you think hitting it won't be that big of a deal, then clearly your at the point where it won't be that big of a deal. The problem is when gutsy-ass people who have no experience try something way out of their league and break shit, or just get rather hurt.
