with regard to learning switch;
it is like but not identical to learning from scratch. for sure it is tuff and you will feel like a newb; but you will be a newb with 'theoretical' experience.
first thing... duck your stance.... i like +15 and -15
then ride regular on an easy slope. pay attention to what your shoulders, hips and feet are doing. go back up to the same start point and do the run switch, but try to remember how your body behviour was during the previous regular run, and then reapply it, but to the opposite.
if at anytime your brain gets fuzzy, just revert back to regular for a couple of turns, regain comfort and then go back to trying it switch.
repetition is the mother of all learning and with most things, the stuff that is difficult to do, earns you the most props! so put in the time!
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
