Default railslides/grinding rails and boxes

When i ski i rotate to the the left but for railslides i turn to the right not because i am more comfortable turning to the right but because i have more comfortable with my left foot forward. i would like to know if anybody else in the forum is the same way and i would like to know if my strong leg should be back or if it should be forward?

In snowboarding which is what I primarily do, you ride favoring one foot. I think this may be part of what is going on with you. You are experiencing a natural tendency to be directional when you go sideways. I don`t see it as a wrong or right issue, just one of personal preference.

X2^^^ Simply personal preference.
If snowboarding you would refer to the railslide as a front-side or a back-side depending on your leading edge. But for skiing, it's whatever feels more comfortable. As you get better you may find yourself hitting the rail either way.

I have been hitting the Bear Gulch / Mesa Falls trails quite regularly these past couple of weeks as I just got my first set of skis for Christmas. The trails are pretty nice, but icy and bare in some spots. The weather channel has us pegged for a few feet of snow in the next couple of days though so that will change. Yesterday I took the eastern side of the trail and went out to the falls and back which is an 8 mile round trip. There are a few lookout areas on the west side of the trail. These trails are in-track only that intersect some with the snowmobile trails.
