I find that watching pow can be very boring, or super sick. It really depends, If they're just going fast straight down a mountain with now cliffs or anything it's no fun to watch, but if it's Seth doing frontflips of 80 footers that's sick.

you are a faggot if you dont like pow skiing and you mine as well give up skiing for life, there are alot of things that seperate skiing from any other extreme sport out there but when it comes down to it its all about the pow, there is no other feeling in the world that can compare and watching it relates people that are real skiers to that feeling, whether its the super gnarly lines of guys like seth, or the super flow of pollard even just watching some guy ski in talcom up to his nipples thats really what this sports all about, you can still hit jumps on rollerblades and bikes and skateboards or whatever but nothing in those sports compares to pow
no dude, i agree. skiing light, fresh powder is no doubt the best part of skiing and is probably better than sex. still, i get bored pretty quickley watching it for long time periods in movies. it's just not that exciting to watch!
Meh, whatever. I'll hike an hour though waist deep snow if it means first tracks off the knife edge that is Cowboy mountain up at Stevens Pass. Dropping off shit into pow is the best feeling in the world, and its worth the hiking when its available. I should get a sled.
Riding pow is just beautiful. Beautiful to experience firsthand, beautiful to talk about, and beautiful to watch in movies because it reminds me of my own deep days. I don't really use that word often (beautiful), but riding pow gets me all sentimental.
i hate all these people saying kids that ski park cant ski pow for shit.... it really just pisses me off cus since when is skiing pow hard. Pow isnt even ment to be all show off ish its just the fact that you are skiing pow that makes it so special and the way it just is when you ski it. If anything i like how park skiers ski pow way more than any straight pow skier cus park rats look out for some dope pillow lines and shit

Wow, are you serious? By the way you're talking, it sounds like you've skied down a diamond run at your resort in a foot of snow. Try skiing down a couloir or shoot with 3-4 feet of powder, you wont be calling it easy then.
are you fucking joking? pow skiing represents the nature of skiing. going out skiing beautiful moutains, and enjoying all that nature has to offer. It's humbling being in total silence, with amazing landscapes surrounding you, as you float over deep snow. My eye's hurt from reading your question you fuck. who the hell would enjoy watching an all park movie? I for sure would not. I'm all about having your own opinion and shit but seriously believing that powder skiing is wrong? Just skiing natural terrain and being out in the mountains is so much for fullfilling than going into the park, where you ski a little section of the mountain. go take a fucking trip out west and ski some pow, you stupid mother fucker
um, correction park skiing is over rated. eventually it's going to reach the point where everyone is as good as everyone else unless they make gaps bigger, skis capable of going fast to clear said gaps and balls the size of watermelons so you can fucking throw down over said gap.
powder skiing is not over rated. it was here before park skiing was, it will be here long after.
