^ yeah if you do well on a bunch of comps i see what ur saying. but if u just win one compitition who knows u could have had a good day or ur competitors could have sucked. i think the film segment shows how u did all year not over one day or a couple of days.

Good film segments are most important to me. You can film and have massive amounts of fun without any pressure whatsoever while in a comp. atleast for me and some people, you have a load of pressure on you to do well.
I would say the majority of a segment shows the true ability of the skier, not just their dedication to trying something many times. Yes, there are select times when a feature can be sessioned, but you don't have anywhere to practice the exact features you film on. No one gets to ski the same insane line or rail or backcountry jump everyday. They have to have the skills to ski it when they get the opportunity. Comps definitely show your consistency on standard course features, but they don't offer as much creativity or variability as filming does. Filming shows more of the skier's full potential in my opinion.
comps for sure cuz u train hard every year 2 be the best and you plan out the perfect "run" and hopefully win all the gold medals then put them in your room and invite friends over and talk about girls. life of ryan.
best show ever.

The 100 tries are at the end of the video or in the extras, they're called the stack reels and are usually the best parts of films :)
Anyway films would be more fun, in comps you have the pressure of the other competitors and public on your shoulders, while films you can pretty much ski aroound find a good spot shot their for a couple of minutes and then keep skiing around for a time more.
The day the child realizes that all adults are imperfect, he becomes an adolescent; the day he forgives them, he becomes an adult; the day he forgives himself, he becomes wise.
To be free, you must overcome your fears, to be a skier, you must do that but be yourself in the process.
So I give props

I think it all depends. A monumental film segment would be way sweet long-term, but I think the feeling of winning one of the biggest comps in the world would be the best feeling ever for that short time after.
