Yeah that, or fuck kids who think skiing is some underground circle jerk. I don't see how any of the above prevents you from skiing exactly the way you want to. Support the brands, companies, and film crews you prefer, and let other people do the same.
There is no "direction" of skiing. There's as many directions in skiing as there are people stepping into bindings and loving every second they spend there.
Having fun at skiing's expense since '09.
