ok, well you know like in basketball, you play horse and pig and hwatnot? how bout we do a game with the same concept here on NS? on pinkbike forums they do the same. you would simply make a title saying SKI level 3 or w/e and wed have to find a way on ranking people. but then you hav elets say a week to post up a trick in video forum to the thread and have to be able to do the trick against your challenger(s). so what do yyou guys say? sound liek something fun NS should start doing?
well, lets say you and i were playing against eachother. Lets say I just started and said my trcik will be a switchup on a flat rail. then I post the vid showing proof and you have to do the same trick as me. but i dont think wed take into acct of who does it better, like if you do a totally sick one then it doesnt mean i get aletter, it just means you dont. and do you think we have to say the trick before we post? like previous day so we have to go out and get new footy instead just takin out clips from old vids or what?
Awesome concept. Someone tried doing something like it with tricks on the trampoline during the boring hours of summer NS. It worked alright, it just needs participation.

Over time, most people experience life involving love, suffering, compassion and an unspeakable drive for something new...For me there's skiing, nothing more nothing less and it encompasses everything, everyday I'm out there.
id ay as long as they both do it, then it counts and the person who is setting does another trick. whocares who has more steeze as long as they both do it. But yeah you should make a cult and then the threads could be like Skier 1 VS skier 2 and they would play in their respective threads.
its a sweet idea, and i am lookin forward to doin it. have already been talking to my friends about playing pig when we get to the mountain. only problem with haveing it on ns is the lack of immediacy. what i mean, is that when you play against people who are there, you get one shot. whereas in this, you get a week to try the trick. if you tried hard enough, you could go from a 3 to a sw 7 in a week. now that i've written that, its no bad thing, it would be further inspiration for the other guy to progress.
I got a high five from Candide in the summer of 2005. i still haven't washed my hands!
