no im not. im simply a rollerblader/skier such as yourself trying to avoid the same tired convo thats been perpetuated to the point of retardation. personally i dont think the 2 should be seen as wqual. personally, if you want to bring rooling into skiing, go for it, but theyre still 2 completly diff sports.
the reason i think this thread should die is because it merely bring about a discussion that changes nobodys mind. the whole skiing rolling arguement is so played out. either you agree or dont, noones gonna change theyre mind. some rollerblader haters might change their minds about rollings validity, but not about skiing and its influence and similarities of skiing.
but in case you would like to see any of the 1000s of posts much more thought out than this one i have provided a quick and easy referance guide:
