I'm 25, by the way, and I'm hating on you. The reason why the edits are flooding the latest videos is the fact that most of them are labelled under Edits/Jumps/Rails and I agree that's pretty stupid, I put mine under Misc. and it never even showed up - I think that's one of the reasons why the video/photo sections have thrived after the overhaul of media: smaller sections that aren't strictly skiing-related don't often show up in "the feed", making the one living hell of trudging through pages and pages of pics of XXXL Jiberish hoodies a thing of the past.
Another reason is that compared to, say, 2003-2004, when the other big ski game Jiberish/Jibbin came out, it was not as easy as today to first of all download, torrent and set up programs like Fraps or Screenflow in a matter of minutes and make an edit with a good picture quality and a certain level of interest (i.e. realistic-like tricks) with very little trouble and effort.
Third, like said, it's the summer, people are hyped about a great-looking game that immediately catches the eyes of a freeskier when it comes to trick form, rail stance and push style - something many have been looking for and trying to emulate in other videogames like Skate, Amped or even Tony Hawk's for God's sake. And now it's here, to play for free, without any hassle. Gee, gosh, I wonder why people are excited and want to share.
