So this is one of my favorites. Kind of highlights how we have to make the best of maybe a couple hundred feet in elevation change.

^^^^ Backyard skiing at its best! Anything involving skiing on two planks should simply be called "Winter Sports"... No matter what you do or how you do it, it's all about having fun out of your back door! 8-)

So this was totally me at Jay Peak last week when they had amazing snow, before the big melt.



What the hell is wrong with everybody?

On a related note, Marcus Caston is has an interesting style where he drops his hip as he rolls into turns. It's almost like an exaggerated Ligety. There are other videos on youtubes if you search. He actually looks like he's having a good time on his skis, and he TURNS. This one has a nice carving section at the end:

Lol, but I don't remember anyone ever saying that. That's about as silly as saying that the telemark turn isn't a carved turn. :evil:

I can't believe it's been TWENTY YEARS of the New Canadian Air Force. I still remember reading that first FREEZE magazine...

These guys were my heroes. They helped change everything. Holy shit, I'm not 18 anymore.

edit: I just found my old stickers... still have stickers... oh man

I really liked this. Not for everybody, but I really appreciate this. Damn. Look how smooth and relaxed he gets at the end.

I would show my son the Snowbird video, but he already thinks I have a loose screw. There is a reason I would save my money to ski there every winter way back when I was single. The same reason I would make lap after lap on a 200 foot vertical 45 degree slope.
Man it was good... now I ski the blues in leathers with my son. Wondering if when he is ready I could still do it??? Oh Harris, by the first week of March, it's deep, no carving required ;)

Impeccably edited. Wow. NBC/Olympic adspot featuring Vonn. Shiffrin has one too but it's not as good as this one.
