So I've had this argument several times with my racer friends, and it's that racers can easily be better jibbers/park riders than most dedicated free skiers. Then they take it to the next level, and claim that we spend way too much time on dumb little jibs and shit, and that they could own you on the rest of the mtn any time. They claim that if D. Rhalves wanted to ski park, he would absolutely have no competition. This makes me laugh, because whenever I see any racers in the park, all I ever see them do is steezless T'd out sevens and then glance over at you like "what!" Then there's Jon who has dominated some World Cup Races, and whenever that's brought up, the racers are like, "well he's one of a kind." Not to bash racers too hard, i mean if that's what you're into then cool, but there's just no respect.
Now I know that many free skiers started out as racers or freestylers, and decided it wasn't for them, but what do you guys think? Do all racers have the right to claim superiority?
