Maybe skiing is going through growing pains, but we continue to hate each others styles, each others locations, and in some cases, we plainly hate each other. Skiing is losing it's community, and as stereotypes increase- whats going to happen? Tanner got snowballs thrown at him at the x-games! people are using stupid words to describe skiers without poles, or saying the same thing about telemarkers! I mean of course we all have different perspectives, but we're all growing seperate, and it's killing the sport, and what makes us skiers is our love for the sport! why don't we seem to have any love for each other?
