I know I know, there have been countless posts regarding Pollard in the past few days but fuck it...I don't care. I just got done reading the 'Tao of Pollard' article in the newest Freeze and this guy is the most genuinely talented skier I've ever heard of. There's a cold hard fact behind this. And that is that Mt. Hood didn't have the capabilities (in the winters of the early 90's) to produce skiers like Pollard. I live in Portland and have been skiing there since 89'. Pollard produced himself. He was looking up to a few different people, but he was responsible for innovating things on his own...and that makes him genuine as hell. God I wish I could ski...LATE
*And those damn skis...130mm underfoot?! A prophet from the future...
I'll tell you where...someplace warm...a place where the beer flows like wine...where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of capastrano...I'm talkin' about a little place called Asssspennnnn...
i liked the article myself but i was kind of dissapointed in his segment this year in Focused (i havent seen any other movies this year yet). it's too bad that most of his best footage was destroyed; maybe next year will be better
pollard is so easy goin and he rips he does not worry about comps or publicity he is so sick the most stylish skier out there too

yeah Pollard is amazing. It about time line gave him a pro model tho, i was getting kinda mad about that. IM looking forward to seeing mike nicks final pro model tho, that should be nice

Yea, this is the most influential article I have ever readin any sking mag. And I am surprised it came out of freeze. Pollard is definately my main influence even before this article came out and he said pretty much everything I stand for in the sport of skiing. He really says evrerything needed to be said about the sport. This cat is great and there is deffinately no one he even can touch his style. Respect.
pollard and the crew had a bunch of cash footage, and pollard got himself into a bind, and needed to get rescued. the rescue took a few hours, and meanwhile the film was lost. im not sure how it was lost, but i know that it was in his little fiasco, he also ended up paying mad fines and shit too
