''Independence is for the very few; it is a privilege of the strong. And whoever attempts it even with the best right but without inner constraint proves that he is probably not only strong, but also daring to the point of recklessness. He enters into a labyrinth, he multiplies a thousandfold the dangers which life brings with it in any case, not the least of which is that no one can see how and where he loses his way, becomes lonely, and is torn piecemeal by some minotaur of conscience. Supposing one like that comes to grief, this happens so far from the comprehension of men that they neither feel it nor sympathize. And he cannot go back any longer. Nor can he go back to the pity of men.'' -my buddy, Fred
''The possibility of physical and mental breakdown is now very real. No sympathy for the Devil, keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride.'' -Raoul Duke, and his good friend, Mr.Jim Bean
you were once a beginner too dumbass! why would you rip on them? why not go up to them and explain proper park ettiquet? unless you're god's gift to skiing you really should get your gead checked!

'Stupid fucking Americans!' - Jon Olsson
Truer words never spoken!
^thats exactly what i do, except the switch part. Racing isnt too bad, most of the guys are cool. but with everything, there are always a few dicks.
^^youd get your ass handed to you too.
You know the Nazis had pieces of flair that they made the Jews wear.
once back when i was a fetus i was aborted. it didn't hurt at all, but i was also high on life at the time. - thisangelicrage
its not rape....its surprise sex. you wake up and SURPRISE you had sex with me haha - huckster989
liberals think killing babies can be both fun and profitable, while conservatives think killing foreigners can be both fun and profitable - ice-is-scary
bitch, whered my watch go - simon, wrist deep...?
jon olsson still races(at least i know he did a year of two ago),a nd he got good results. i give them respect, becasue just like jibing ro thrownign tricks, it takes skill to do. i couldnt stand it because i hate ice witha passion.
before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes. by then, it doesnt matter. your a mile away, and you have his shoes
do any of you ever watch racing? ever watch a race called kitzbuehel? the most insane downhill ever, i bet that every single person including my self (ive raced NorAm downhills) would shit themselves standing at the top of that. It is the most intese thing ever.
i dont hate sum of em, but they are evan more cocky than us, an i can ski everything, not just the park, i ski the mountain more than the park, and alot of racers hate powder and cant ski it, and they cant ski the park(well, alot of them cant)
well the thing is if your really good at skiing you should be able to race, i did and we got to the south islands and it was sooo funny all of these guys in fucking lycra and i was wearing my ultra baggy pants, of course i got my ass handed to me, but getting time off school and getting to go skiing is all that counts right?
If I had more energy, I'd burn that young mans face
all of you who hate races... get over it.......i race on 2 alpine teams and still have time to free ski and i love my twins, by the way, my NB Alpine racing jacket is baggier than most of your oakley jackets, and my karbon pants are not in the least bit tapered at the feet, this is my practice uniform for RACING, racing provides you with a ton of balance and control on how you're skiing, i think it BENIFITS my freestyle, racers dont suck, its still skiing
I hate parent's who take there little fucking bastard kids through the terrainpark and get in the way, Fri some little kid was chilling in blind landing of a flat up flat box and i hit it with speed hoping to clear the flat but instead of a hard landing its was the best cushiest landing of all time, that fucking kid took the force of me in the chest and didnt get hurt and her mom was like 10 feet away and watched it happen. It was the softest landing of my life!
I did wait its not like i charged it without looking we stood at the top of it for prob 30 seconds before i hit it so it was her fault not mine.
haha awesome story. whenever there is a kid on a jump he is usually avoided (the person jumping has to like fall off away screaming to his/her death) here. never heard of a kid getting smashed. thats great.
i got in a car crash,got shot at,and attacked by a fucking bobcat. cross country is boring.
at heart im a free skier but i still love to get out on my GS skis and rip it super fast it the only way you can get 100+ kph on a bad day the3 speed is just so exhilarating. I now a lot of racers and have race my self it is great cross training although you do half to make shore your doing it on a controlled coerce other wise someone will kill them selves when they plough in to someone slow or a snowboarder sitting on the ass.
ok, must of you can grind the rails, get big air and do hot moves in the pipe.I was a racer and coach and I just bought a new pair of P60's world cup edition 180 cm(ltd edition GS skis ) out of the racer box at the distributors and also a pair of AR5 180 cause I like to play in the park too. Like some others have said 75% of racers are very good skiers and would blow away any time so respect to be respected, alot of the pros have gone thru the racing programs and now are some of the best freeskiers in the world. Yes some racers are dumb asses and think we are fuckin nuts but so what.... sking is the best thing in the world no matter what type you do as long as you respect.
