CabbyArrantMy question really is how far is too far???
SDrvperThis is why we need to replace xgames with SLVSH
CHORIZOI hate hearing about skiers getting injured or losing their life, but the individual chooses to push limits. With everyone in the sport wantin to progress it is only natural that the whole sport will keep progressing. Its up to the skier where to stop and to not push past their own boundries
chacha33^^^ exactly ever since I stomped my first three ive been chasing that feeling. Its more of an individual thing imo
BonzaloYou really are blaming Sarah Burke's death to "park skiing"?? there is no such thing as going too far as a sport, you can only go too far as a person, and thats an eventuality.
CabbyArrantI'm not blaming her death on park skiing. This thread is an opinion on how far the sport can progress before the risk is too great to progress any further. The reason she was mentioned is because her death is an example of one of the very real consequences when we as skiers push ourselves and the sport harder than what we should.
CHORIZOthe sport would be a ton cooler if the implemented new types of competitions rather than just making the jumps bigger and having bigger rails
CabbyArrantBut is it ethical to support this sort of self endangerment. I understand it's a personal decision but is it responsible of us as people to enable it.
SDrvperWe have already gone too far, look at the number of injuries this season, it went through the roof. Next year is going to be a bloodbath.

DeepskierMaybe if everyone skied like Phil and didn't spin over 7
