Great Skier Henrik Winstedt
Might be a repost. But here is a really great article on a very well rounded skier. http://espn.go.com/action/freeskiing/news/story?id=4518052
Born In Raised In Pocatello, Idaho
Maybe the best All Around skier EVER
I need to find where those trees at 1:40 are
you mean he is the best all round skier ever.
He could be. I am really hoping we get to see him getting in a heli and hitting some big lines. What really impresses me is how well he has done on the Freeride World Tour. Those venues are sick, the snow is usually mediocre, and the guys he is competing against are insane. I know most here might not recognize names like Aurelion Ducroz, but those euro guys really rip. Skiing a face like the Bec de Ross in bad snow, and ripping it to pieces, is one of the highest levels of skiing out there.
I might not find to many in agreement on this board, but the O'neill Verbier big mountain event is the best skiing contest in the world. The other events on the FWT are almost as good too.
Check out some of the videos on this site:
the oneil event in verbier is sick! i was there in 05 such a sick course, i was riding there all week looking at the peak thinking nobody could ski it and then come to find out that is the peak they are using for the contest... nuts. the town goes all out too big 50 foot screen in the center of town with like 300 couches in a big opening.
ohh yeah and henrik winstedt is the man. and he has been around since the start of it
