I find in North America skiing has lost a lot of what it should be. In Europe it's all about having fun, which was what skiing in North America was about 3 years ago. In North America its all about who has the longest tall tee? who can be the most wangster? or who can look the coolest with no skiing ability whatsoever...I think this is bullshit and kids don't know how much more fun skiing used to be before kids started checkin there 'steeze' 5 times before they went down the run. Basically in North America our sport has turned into a bunch of spoiled little rich kids who just care what they look like.
Now in Europe, wonder why there is so much talent coming out of there lately? Because people don't care so much about what they look like going down the hill and pay more attention to how good they are. There are also more parks and mountains in a denser area and usually these parks are pretty fuckin sick. With a couple Perfect jumps and a few nice rails and a killer pipe which is really all you need to get a few more tricks in your bag of em. In Europe they also have big air bags, indoor parks, water ramps, and FREE glacier access to the parks in a lot of places.
So next time you think North America has SO many better skiers than in the US and Canada think again, in 8 days in Austria last year I saw about 10 people who could easily take a lot of the 'pros' here that are coming out of the woodwork and that was just at a little mountain called Nordparc and a big one called Lech. (another reason is because a lot of people go to train in Europe, probably cause there arent so many little gangster fuckers skiign around and thinking they are the shit)
I know I am gonna get raped in the asshole by all the North Americans on here that think there the shit but take what i said with a grain of salt... maybe he could be right about all of this cause I havent been to europe?
