AND you lost me.
The Olympics are cool, and will bring a lot of money into the sport, BUT the Olympics also bring skiing into this odd odd storm where many very fun sports have been lost. Look at the Winter Olympics, there arent a whole lot of sports that look like that much fun. Not many people are recreational curlers or bi-athletes. Ski racing is something grounded in competitions, and freeskiing isnt.
People (like me) look at skiing as something very recreational, and not to be taken too far in a direction where we have to clear tricks with judges before trying them, or get approved to do inverts.
Olympics represent the most control freeskiing has ever seen, and thats what scares a lot of us on here.
Doing 50-50s and dressing up as a "wigger" while "stoned off your ass" are the opposite of control, its doing whatever you want and not really giving a fuck what any judge or organization has to say about it.
Just trying to explain the thoughts of some people on here.
