what are we, a bunch of mindless morons? If I had a dollar for every time I've seen or heard the word 'progression' used in relation to skiing, I'd be able to buy the WRX i want. The whole progression concept is really starting to get to me... if i never see another 'lifestyle' segment, i'll be happy. Skiing isn't some fuckign school where you 'progress' from grade 1 to grade 2, it's a sport. Let's practice, not progress.
