We will be releasing an entire trick tip series this fall. In the first installment we will be covering everything from simple switch ups to 1080s. Looked over a couple of the rough drafts and they will be very helpful. Really excited for these to drop.
Mike Rogge: "Why do you think the best skiers in the world come from the east coast?"
Tom Wallisch: "We've ski'd the worst so the best comes easy."
"On the way down - it's awesome." - CR Johnson
I know the problem that I have is that I can watch something and get a general idea, but I will never learn by just watching the video. I'm definitely a hands on learner, so actually attempting the trick over and over is how I learn, although I guess if you had a smart phone you could pull out the video on the hill and watch it then try it. Well, this post is now pointless.
"Because she's the hero they deserve, but not the one they need right now. So, they'll hunt her, because she can take it. Because she's not our hero. She's a silent alcoholic. A watchful booze hound. A drunk knight." -TechnoPotamus
"she just partied for a week straight in a dress and sombrero." -Rossik
I have no idea how to embed this, but I have never tried it and I really want to know if it is as simple as he explains it. It honestly looks like its not that hard, but I really just want to know if is as actually as easy as it looks
I feel the same way, I'm definitely gonna give this a try. I feel like it'd be one of the few tricks where it would be less scary to try in the park than into powder. I think if you carve hard enough and have your 5's on lock, it won't be much different.
Isnt that the case for everyone? Nobody gets their first trick done for the first time after watching a tutorial.
Reminder: You won't ever get good if you are afraid to fall badly; no one gets out totally injury free.

"My family, my friends, and skiing... that's it for me, thats my life. The joy I get from skiing, thats worth dying for." -CR Johnson

"I think that Schlopy was sent from the future by Newschoolers version 16.7, which has gained consciousness and decided to destroy skiings past in order to win the style vs. Tech argument in the future." -Mr.Bishop
"Most definitely one of those schools with an overly 'exuberant' drama teacher, that gets the kids 'all into it' probably through pumping sunshine, flowers and rainbows up there asses... Those teachers are usually fat as fuck and have cat hoarding problems too." - NinetyFour
Hey Saga, sense your doing this video tutorial series, you guys should to the skiing trick wiki or whatever too sense NS seems unwilling to do it. Having a single place to go to look at pictures/videos of every trick, a brief description and a video tutorial attached would be a killer resource for the community. I know there are a few threads like that hanging around in NS but they all end up outdated with broken links/videos.
That would be quite the massive undertaking. It's not a bad idea but I don't think we have the resources to complete something like that with all the other projects we're working on during the year. Especially going into this time of the year.
