Turd.FergusonProbably the most insightful thread on ns to date. The structure of skiing was built on, like you said, hard working, beer drinking guys who saw something in skiing others in the world really didn't (and still don't) sense to this day. Skiing is so much more than spin-to-win, drinking PBR out of flamingos (orage masters) and hippy killing shenanigans. (Dont get me wrong, I enjoy that too) I don't want to sound cliché but skiing is basically a way of life. Sure there are the people who ski 5 days in vail a year and call themselves 'skiiers' and then go home and make fun of people who spend a lot of time progressing and actively involve themselves in the sport. But, in my opinion, the real skiing happens not on the groomers like buddys run and on the beaten path, but in the trees and in the park where people push themselves where others don't feel comfortable. Thats where the real skiing happens.
