I thoroughly enjoyed your video!

I actually guffawed out loud when you wiped out! (Why do humans find it funny when we watch others crash?)

Been there all the time man.

You are a beautiful skier- I greatly appreciate you taking the time to film it.

Beautiful skiing. I'll just ignore the last bit.
