me...i'm not a hero. The real heroes are the ones who go to work like normal people every day and then get a call from the commisioner, put on a cape and go fight crime. Those are the real heroes.

i really like the new look of freeskier but some of their new sections are really superfluous. Like "Simon Says" and Gear Girl. The last two gear girls had almost nothing to do with gear and the simon says bit is just lame. Feels like a cheap plug for Target.
I like their issues this year, but I do have a little gripe with that midwest section. Devil's head in Wisconsin has never done anything to help push the development of our skiing. Whereas Tyrol Basin near Madison always allowed inverts, built huge jumps, etc. Cascade Mountain as well. In Minneosta, Hyland Hills and Spirit have been building quality features and hosting events for years. All of you Midwesterener's should check those places out.
I nearly cried when I saw that they put Devils Head in there... It almost seemed like they put some midwest hills in a hat and randomly selected them to put in the issue.. oh well, if you are from the midwest, you already know whats good and whats bad and there definately won't be anybody from the EC or the west coming here to ski.
