@Tanner: Word, the HD ones are legit. Go for it. I'm tryna hit up Kirkwood sometime for sure, I've only heard good things.
@jca: Yeah, I guess it's more of a personal thing, nothing gets me goin like slowmo pow haha, I'll keep that in mind though that everyone has different tastes, and maybe try to change it up next time.
@powderbro: ... you wanna pay for the $40 worth of core shots I got that weekend? Both Sat and Sun I ended up with shots scraping a few mm into the wood core, both of which I received simply skiing over (as in, not landing on) rocks below the snow, on runs I am familiar with. I thought there was great coverage too initially; I thought otherwise after getting those babies, maybe I just had bad luck though. Sorry, I'm simply not willing to throw down hard and risk my skis and my bodily health until I feel confident that I won't land on anything that would seriously fuck with my skis or my body.
Don't worry man, I've been skiing Alpine for 14 years, so although I know you could show me some sick hits, I also know where the hits are that I love. I also chose to play it safe because I do zero conditioning and didn't want to go too hard after not skiing for 8 months.
