mmk, heres the deal, people who ski park are either one of 2 types of skiers, a) skiers who just learned how to make real turns without the pizza, or B) skiers who accually learned how to ski first, then thought park would be cool. as you can see, the better parkrats are the ones that accualy know how to turn and work a ski, they're the ones that acctually know how the thing straped to thier foot works. the other skiers probobly started skiing just so they could jib (mabye because its like rollerblading, i don't know)
Second thing is, any real skier, Option B from above, knows that he/she will use excesive/deadly force to be at thier mountain as soon as possible on a powder day of more than 6". Option A probobly dosn't know what the hell we're talking about when we say Powder.
Third is that the terrain availible determins your area of progression, for instance, i live in new hapshire, and if your not hiking tuck's than big mountain is kinda out of the picture, (not to mention we never really got any snow this year at all, damn old man winter) so the park is all we had, you take what you can get.
now don't get me wrong, i rip grommers in the morning, and when the glades are open, if they're open, they are totaly sweet too. a big mountain skier can't say that i suck because i don't ski big mountain, because i acctually don't have a big mountain to ski, but if i did have one, you bet your ass i'd be skiing it, when i go out west, lets say this year i went to crested butte, i skied the park a grand total of 6 runs, i ski park all the time and when i can ski big mountain i do it alot because i barely get a chance to. if you present us with the terrain we will ski it, unless you are from option A above, then you should just strap into some ski blades.
please corect my spelling mistakes
