Ok so earlier today, I saw the thread that critisized Schoening, saying that he can only ski park and not BC.
I think that ideas such as this need to stop. Most freeskiers (not all), have been skiing since they were very young, as early as 3 years old. And most start to freeski around the age of 14 (sometimes younger, sometimes older), but thats 11 years of non-park skiing. This obviously means that freeskiers can ski alot more than park, since they have so much experience outside the park. Another thing is alot of freeskiers used to race for a couple years. That gives them alot of experience with carving and helping their overall skiing ability.
That is why it pisses me off so much when people critisize kids saying that they can only ski park. Just because kids choose to ski mostly park doesn't mean that they can't ski outside the park, it's just that they mostly choose not to, which is totally up to them.
And there's my rant. I didn't really get all the points I wanted to, but you get the idea.
