When most people think of how far skiing can go they most likely think of quads and future spins. But i was wondering if there are any other tricks that you guys think just about set the limit on freeskiing. Stuff like trips of rails or doubles onto rails?
+K for good answers
When in trouble tuck for double
I dont even know when to cheer anymore, Like was that sick?
You cant really set a limit on any sports potential. Especially a sport progressing so quickly such as freeskiing. 20 years ago people weren't even thinking about triples, now theyre pretty common. Theres no telling whats gonna go down a couple decades from now.
Dont know if you saw this, it was posted a few days ago. There is the triple cork 1080 in here, it's at the end, but the edit is worth just watching.
The possibilities are limitless. Freeskiing will continue to develop from the streets to the park to huge peaks.
I remember back in the day thinking, "Wow, we've come so far, what could possibly be next?" Guess what, there's ALWAYS something next; whether that's a new grab that no one's done before; a new take on an old grab to freshen it up (tweaked safety for example); stuff like surface swaps instead of just hopped switch-ups; and so on.
It's like fashion. Clothing designers aren't going to say "Well, we've designed everything already, so we're not going to make a new line this year." They're going to come up with something new. Skiing will continue to do that every year, and FOR THE LOVE OF GOD IT'S NOT GOING TO BE ALL ABOUT DOUBLES AND TRIPLES ON AND OFF OF RAILS.
You can say that has already happened in some aspects of the sport. CR, Shane, Arne B, Sara. Will that stop the progression? No. Will the Risk outweigh the reward? Well for some it already has. Hall just announced he is done competing. Some say he is over it, No, He has to push himself so hard and knows the reward is no longer within reach. For him the cross road has been reached. Than being said there will always be that younger hungry kid willing to push it that much harder and besides I was invincible until I reach 23.
Rodeo 1? Wtf, I'm trying to picture that in my mind, I can't even wrap my head around how that would be possible.
Anyways, I can't see it getting much bigger than quads, which will be done in a few more years. After that there's just too much potential for serious injury. It wouldn't be worth it. Like when you saw Kenworthy and Bobby Brown wiping out trying triples in this year's ski big air, they weren't seriously hurt. But the airtime required to get a quint or higher would leave one seriously hurt on a bail.

Meh, olympic gymnast skiers are and have been doing quads and quints with future spins for a while. Personally I think it's more impressive to see tricks like cork 3s and 1s. Also skiing rails should continue to grow, traveling circus and b-dog are definitely pioneering what skiers do on rails. And tricks that skiers are already doing will keep being done on bigger and sketchier things. There will always be something bigger, sketchier or more technical to do, and there will no doubt be people crazy enough to try it
you basically do a flat 3 but as you come into landing you shifty your hips around and try to land switch. I've done them on the trampoline but I have a hard time seeing it work too easily on skis. Mabye vinny cash will do one, and mabye i'll try them we will have to see.
