Nothing can touch skiing, ever.
However, these skaters (yes, skaters - they skate - rollerblading is a gaper term) have some serious talent and its curious that it hasn't become more popular among skiers. So much of this stuff translates so well to the snow. The rails, the halfpipe stuff, etc. For anyone who is stuck without snow in the summer months who wants to improve their skills, they would be wise to pick up a pair of skates for sure!
Just an opinion - I'm sure there are a lot of others who will disagree.
If you think style is not moving then I guess thats ok, but maybe you should open your eyes a little? Its a different kind of style for a different sport. Sure you can do straight rails with spins out but thats not nearly as tech or impressive as doing all the crazy shit you see.
Besides, if you don't like it because it didn't look good, then do you ski because that looks good to you? Or do you ski because its fun?
