Tricks of the Trade
I have beening living up in a cabin near Banff, Alberta for the summer. I just got back and found all the new trailers for Movies coming out. Is it just me or is this sport developing tooo fast? Like take for instance, The Playground. A new skool movie with some kick ass scenes. But near the end, and i'm not positive who it is, a guy sticks a like 120 foot rail with like 5 kinks in it. Is that physically possible? I had to watch it like five times to realize that he actually did. Two years ago, in ski movie 2, shrman nutted, scraped, bruised and battered himself trying to do like a 30 footer without kinks. Anyways, it does come down to skill and it does come down to technique but skiing has progressed sooo fast in like the last 5 years that i feel sooner or later it's gonna have no where to go and people are going to start getting hurt trying to one-up the new guy.
P.S I landed a double back on my trap yesterday. Skiing really is great!!!
Master of Everything that moves
Yeah, it's good in some ways because it's bringing newschool to the front of skiing, and even though it's got a long way to go, the equipment has changed the sport so much with the development of fat twins like the pocket rocket for backcountry jibbing and has taken the athletes of our sport to a whole new level.
