In most other sports there is a trick, or feat that once done, seperates you from others. For example, you arent a 'great' basketball player until you can dunk. In your opinion, is there any trick that seperates good skiers from bad skiiers?
are you fucking dumb, you dont have to be able to dunk to be great and once you dunk your not great, what kind of basketball have you been watching, i know some tall ass kid in my school who can dunk, and he sucks, and someone like mugsey bouges can barely dunk and he is a sick basketball player

360 grab AND being able to make a rail your bitch. if you want to compare skiing to bball dunking is like making a turn on a groomer while a dope ass crossover is more like a 360 grab and being a sick passer or rebounder is like cleaning a rail
Yeah, definitly agree with Ds91260. You gotta be able to see the sick shit and huck the drops. On the jibbin side of things, its the rail slide.
I heard he had a style, and so I came to see him and listen for awhile.
i like to ride park just as much if not more than the next guy, but anyone who can stand up and knows how to throw a spin can hit a jump and do a 3 safety, and any fruit booter can slide rail, but that dosnt make u a good skier
inverted or corked stuff. you spend all of your time before you can do them, thinking about them and once stick them it opens up a whole new aspect skiing, not just how many rotations you can spin.
Dude I was fine before you tried to turn me into a cake - me after ralphing after being antiqued
OK, almost all, about 99% of the pro basketball players can dunk. But anyways, i think the 'defining' trick for ppl, is the backflip. There's just something so nice about it, as mike douglas says, its sexy.

I think hes getting to what makes you 'great' not good. NA players are all great or they wouldnt be there. I would say the trick that all great skiers can throw is the Dspin every pro has that in his back pocket
not every pro can do a d-spin, why does everybody think d-spins are like THE trick. if you can d-spin then you kick ass or something, it doesnt make sense. Skogen Sprang can't d-spin and will own all of you any day of the week including myself.
