why compare to snowboarding? skiing needs to be more like snowboarding this, like that, he hit it with a whiffle ball bat...
skiing should be skiing. change is necessary, change is good. it keeps the sport fresh and on it's toes. but too much change too quick can kill it, and too little change will kill it. Just do what you want to do for your own reasons and skiing will thrive. Do it because everyone else does it or because you want to be in this years 'cool group' and it stifles progression, personally and as an industry.
Detective Greenly: These guys are miles away by now, but if you want to beat your head against a wall, then here's what you're looking for: they're scared, like two little bunny rabbits. Anything in a uniform or flashing blue lights is gonna spook 'em, OK? So the only thing we can do is put a potato on a string and drag it through South Boston, "Thanks for coming out!"
Murphy: You'd probably have better luck with beer.
Connor: aye, you would.
some of this stuff is "fads" too. im personally not for the whole no pole thing, cuz i ski other stuff then just park. but for sure, if i were a park rat, i would prob. go with the no poles fad for a little. i mean, how many backcountry skiers are skiing no poles? u gotta realize that freeskiing is not jsut park or not just backcountry, but everything, and different fads for each type
it seems to em there is definitly alot ore hate online than i real life, like if im at the top of the park and see soembody with no ploes i dont hear people saying how gay that is, its definitly different online from realife

But who is to decide what change is good and what change is bad?
I agree that there is way too much hate in skiing today... And a lot of it comes from this site. There is so much totally unneeded and unwarranted hating in these forums but little punks that think its cool to shit on people for no reason.
Its retarded how the "gangsta" stlye is the "only" style there is. Everyone hates people who wear snug pants, tight pants, no pants, or jeans. People need to realizew that its changing, whether they like it or not.
With my most sincere regards,
"Skiing should be more like other "action" sports in which there are many different styles and ways of going about it all in which are accepted..make sense?" -powfoka
its true, but to alot of people the style does not appeal. I've seen tight pants worn the right way, I've seen legit broken grinds, and i've seen no poles look cool. But im not a super big fan of any of that. thats just me tho!
PEACE COAST! ski, longboard, whatever! we slay it!

ok several things with this i live only an hour away from whistler, if im going to whistler im ognna ski some bc wich = bring poles but if i'm at my shitty home mountain with nothing but a park whats the point you can grab better with out em?!
and to the hating on internet and not in real life its because people think they're safe on the internet and no one can touch them ...
I feel like people mistake hate for criticism. Everything about skiing should be criticised to make sure its going in the right direction. If no one said that tight neon one pieces are ugly then we'd all be wearing those and look like idiots to the outside world
