For the last 3 years we have had pro skiers get ok at riding park then run away to "the backcountry" or "alaska" almost just so they can avoid direct comparison to the kids. Sure they cant cab right 7 octo or 270 on 450 pretzel but fuck you because they are better than you at something you will probably never get to ride! Its tough work staying better than the kids these days when everyone is killing it, and it sure is easy to put your hands in your pockets, grab some super fat skis, and ride around like you dont care while same tricking the 11 year old girl in front of you.
This is for dudes like corey vanular, liam downey, mick, sammy dumont, and simon carlson who actually ride park and stay relevant with thier tricks - putting themselves up for direct comparison with the shit you throw every day and still slaying the backcountries.
As for the other guys, I would rather go to alaska on my travel budget than try to stay better than all those 4bi9 kids at park too, just stop whining about the kids these days when noone cares about your new video part.
