I am suprised someone smart hasn't told Tanner to just never talk w/ social media again. He is utterly and completely ruining any chance for him as a marketable skier and making future money in the sport. If i was one of his sponsors I would firmly give him the advice to just stfu. You're not paid to talk you're paid to ski and it fucking shows.
Also, I posed this question on another thread, but here's a prime example. It only took 30 minutes for Tanner to respond to this thread. Do pros actually come on this site and peruse the forums a lot? Or is it sheer luck? Or does NS shoot them a text when they spot a topic they might want to login an weigh in on?
They call me Captain Obvious.

Dude straight up you're a dick. A year ago before red bull dropped your sorry ass you were so pro olympics and you supported it coming and being on top. Now that you realize your sorry ass is washed up you are hating on everything olympic halfpipe. She is promoting the sport you love and the discipline you were once so passionate about. She is trying to get the sport out their and your being a huge dick
Pros and industry people regularly browse this site. Occasionally we will shoot out a note to someone who doesn't come on that much if there is something super topical, but most of the time its just them noticing it.
Newschoolers is the dirty secret of the industry... everyone does it but they pretend like they don't.
I went skiing with the cub scouts and saw freeskiers in the shitty winterplace park. I wanted to be cool so I started to do hood rat shit and here we are.
