Im considering trying a few ski comps held here in Arkansas this summer. The only problem is I've yet to run the course. I would consider myself an intermediate skier that is still working on being stacked and making rhythmic turns. My goal is to be able to run the course one day.. But, I don't have access to one so I just free ski as much as possible when I'm at the lake house.. I've been to a couple of ski schools. So, I'm somewhat familiar with the course. Just no luck navigating through it yet.... Anyway, would it be silly for me to just sign up for a tournament and give it a shot without actually running the course beforehand.. I'm just trying to get as much experience as I can... Advice welcomed please. Thanks!
