ice or powder, who cares? It's still skiing.
poles or no-poles, who cares? Your having fun skiing
rails or jumps, who cares? You still have those 2 boards on your feet.
urban or alaska, who cares? you do what you can with what you have.
Baggy or tight, who cares? Does the way you dress affect the way you ski???
cork 5 bluntor hexo flip, who cares? Both tricks names would sound stupid to any non-skier.
Now go out and ski, if you cant go build a platform at you local ice rink and try some oldschool ballet tricks and make them newschool.
