A few more Q's after another session...
What do you guys do with your gloves? Mine smell ridiculously bad and there aren't any washing instructions. I think washing would **** the inner lining up and make it impossible to get 'em on again. Any tips/tricks for preventing bad odors/cleaning the gloves? Also I'll gladly take in any suggestions for maintaining my board/gear
When do I get my edges tuned? I remember the first day on the mountain they were super sharp, almost cutting my fingers. Today didn't have as much powder, so the snow was hard and my edges seem duller when I touch them. Still didn't notice a difference on the mountain unless I attributed the difference to the hard snow compared to powder.
I'm spending 95% of the time on my heel side edge.... seems like a pretty solid workout on my thighs, normal? Is there a way to reduce the workout? By the end of the day I don't even want to go down the mountain with my knees bent.
I think I'm actually a regular rider but I skate much better goofy. Should I put my bindings at +9/-9 or +12/-12? Something different? Should I tweak anything else to improve control?
Any tips/tricks for getting better? I'm still questioning lessons, since every time I see students/instructors it looks like nothing is being done/said.
Thanks in advance!
