i just saw the last freeskier and thought it was really funny the only way they could sell a mag was with sex. This is like their third 'women of freeskiing' issue. All the girls look so uncomfortable. freeskiers turning into cosmo girl.
i thought that article sucked. Hell yeah, I enjoyed most of the pics.
But, I think it shows how immature the 'freeskiing' industry is that freeskier yet again needs to fill its pages with a 'hot women of freeskiing' article. Why not interview the girls, show pictures of them riding, and publish the separate interviews in different issues? I think freeskier's article really cheapened some of the skiers in it. Snowboarding mags don't seem to do this, from what I've seen. If there's a hot snowboarder that wants to do some non-boarding 'i'm hot' shots, and she's good looking enough, it'll end up in maxim of fhm or some shit. But transworld, etc. seem to stick to articles about the sport.
In conclusion, I liked the pics as much as the next guy, but I think it hurts that the editors/writers at freeskier can't be more creative.
who cares, bottom line is they sell other issues besides just the women of freeskiing issue, i doubt they're really hurting...some of you guys are fags, who gives a fuck what they put in there, why're you turning down hot girls who ski well? thats as gay as aids
PM mullet_skum for the best custom beanies and headbands, they're stylish as fuck!
-let people do what they want, ski how you want, make whoever you want your role model its your choice
-i love to ski, so should you, its fun, try it sometime
-thats what the internet is for anonymously slandering people-jason lee
besides all that: it seems really weird for all these skiers to get all dressed up and powder puffed and everything--it's sort of dissapointing when I'm hoping to see the girls reppin' the sport get coverage for their skill and show that they can hold their own in world of freeskiing...and all I get is this sort of degrading, I dunno...but we can definitely do better than that.
Okay, hot women plus skiing, two of my favorite things. How could this be bad? It's not exploiting the women at all, it is highlighting thier skiing and leaving it up to the reader to make the descision on how hot they are. If you bothered to take your eyes off their tits for long enough, you'd see pictures of them fucking ripping right next to it. It was an artical about what these women are doing for skiing, not about how to pick them up or their measuments. Trying to manifest your own immaturity on an artical is very short sighted.
didnt we just go through this in another forum, the one with Grette complaining about that mag, I figure if any of them thought that they were being potrayed as sex symbols then they shouldnt have gone to the shoot in the first place again.
^^ya i was talking to defy and they might hook me up with a t-shirt and some condoms. -Lj5
