Default update and questions(tree runs, and thanks)

First off ide like to thank everyone on this board who replied, or made posts that I learned from. I know for a fact this place helped me out earlier on! so thanks! I have boarded over 20 times this season so far, and made more progress then I could have hoped for.

my question update tree runs is simply how do you go into them and how do you ride them? ive slowly been taking them faster but I still switch to the side I use less in order to be more carefull. I usually dont find myself turning very good inside them, and so I switch back and forth in order to make it around, and that makes me go much slower. ive also found many BIG jumps inside these runs that I fail to notice until im right on them. a little scary haha.

a few things I wanna work on

riding switch
getting more air off jumps
riding more consistant with less slowdowns/stops
and just trying to become fearless to overcome some of these things I know I can do

let me know if theres anything else you can add

Let me tell you...I've been riding for around 10 years now. I would consider myself an advanced boarder and can bomb any run and hit any terrain.

I live in Southern California.

We don't get powder, we don't get dumps, and we don't get to do tree runs, unless it is a fluke storm.

We just had freak storm. I hit the trees...and sucked. To my credit the tree runs are pretty tight here...and I found myself having trouble initiating turns fast enough to avoid trees and ended up just plowing a lot of the way. Oh and I was also exhausted.

Like Wolf said.. it is all about progression and just doing it.. if you do it often enough and take it slowly but surely...you will get better.

Too bad Ill rarely get the chance.

alright I will go look for less dense ones for sure.

sorry to hear that jive, tree areas are pretty darn fun.

they play a game here, where several people race through a tree area, and while your going you grab a branch, and the one with the biggest branch on the way out wins haha.

Oh hahah and by terrain I meant terrain park features. Obviously I cant hit any literal terrain considering I suck at tree runs.
