i had invented a new name before becoming a mod and i've been coming to the site for a year+ now
That's a really ignorant thing to say. Most of the people I raced with aren't rich or spoiled. It costs a lot and I remember the refrigerator being pretty damn near empty for a few months but its worth it because it makes you a way better skier.
YEah i startd skiing like 7 months ago when i went to snowplanet (a indoor ski park in NZ) and there were no snowboards left (I figured i would pick up snowboarding easier cuz i surf) and my cuzn who does freestyle skiing talked me into hiring some skis.... after my first run i was hookd and have spent a shit load of money on gear and days down on the mountain since then... and am soon headin ova to Banff for their season... Since then iv spend heaps of time on ns and youtube looking a ski film segments and always get ampd..
However even tho ski films are mean. surfing films are betta in my opinion.......
skiing is the shit i have to agree with you. So much variety but i still like to watch snowboarding once and a while there are some pretty good board films out there too. I think that way to many people when they first start snow sports the instantly try snowboarding because its the "cool thing to do" alot people just thik of skiing as racing.
Pretty much all my friends are boarders... and none of them have a prob with skiing cuz they aint posers and they think its sick too. Its really gay especially at my local mountain when Im always asked on the chairlift.."why do u ski?" my response which usually varies.."Go watch a fuckin new ski movie and then ask me that question....." People are just ignorant when they ask that question. But I have no prob with snowboarding and I have no problem with NON-poser boarders... ECT
