well,i would say only the obvious, such things like bend your knees, and have a good amount of speed, thats half your balance, if your going slow before you hit the rail, your goin to eat snow, if you can find a double rail those are especially good for practice, mainly b/c they're wider and require less speed, go on those for a while, get used to the feel of it, then progress, pc out

if you want to get on a rail you just start on a rail that is'nt to hard like 1 u don't have to jump to get onthen when you feel good u just go for it.
