Crested Butte. I will commend Cusson's skills and you for bringing up such discussion, but that sole event was NOT the reason twin tips were made.
K2 had already produced the twin-tip skis Poacher and Pipeline, Dynastar had the Twin Board Concept on Candide's feet at that event and Rossi had the Vert. Salomon went the further step at the time and made the better twin-tip than those others mentioned, but they were not the first.
I was there. I may be a NS noob, but I was there at the beginning. That is JF, fakie 2 fakie, rockin some sick RIP CURL gear. JF and Brad Holmes rode for Rip Curl back in the day, I bought one of their coats, so sick, 1st time I'd seen wrist gaiters.
Poacher was even before the Pipeline. I remember when my homies Noah and Josh both got pairs of Poachers. I was so jealous. Those Poachers were awesome despite their noodlyness. MF Doom would say Quite Buttery.
a kid on my team raced in 1080 groms last year, lol, and tore out the edge at Wildcat

haha yea!! I always thought mogul pants were for losers but then I saw JF stomp that switch 7 and suddenly I wanted 4 pairs. Although I never did get them haha. I think I secretly knew the truth all along.
interview after he says "that's some pure hucking"
beat out johnny moseley who threw a "dinner roll" 7 through the comp, his last hit he put both of his poles into one hand to grab with the other, and went to the bottom of the landing with a backslap landing.
i remember the x-games before those, with the skiboard slopestyle, and triple air. I would also attribute moseley's mute 3 at nagano as the moment my mind was blown and it was on.
bucking the trend and bringing useful and well thought out posts for 5 years.
I remember watching that stuff live on TV. Then the next day on the hill I was telling kids in the ski club about it
"yeah and he did a 720, backwards [before i even said switch] and everything!"
"Wait, you can't do a 720 and land backwards"
"no he started off backwards and landed backwards"
He also did a switch 7 in powder that year too I think. It should be in the intro to 13. Shit I'm gunna go watch that movie and Degenerates now.
