It was a statement, you can take it however you want. If it will help you to understand, I can break it down a little.....
I enjoy training, and many of the skiers who I respect the most also enjoy training. I like it for many reasons, it keeps me focused on goals, it keeps me in shape, and it just makes me feel good. I don't expect anyone else to care about my training, and I'm sure the fact that I enjoy training has never affected another skier whatsoever.
Now, if someone decides to call that "the worst word in skiing", it doesn't really show any respect for how I (and many others) choose to approach the sport.
For example, if someone posted "rollerblade grinds are the worst word in skiing", that would be pretty disrespectful for everyone who enjoys working on rollerblade grinds....
I'm certain that you have enough intelligence to realize that there is an arrogant and confrontational connotation towards calling something that many of your fellow skiers value, enjoy, and brings no harm to anybody in the sport "the worst word in skiing"?
So I have no problem standing by my statement. Things like the attitude and arrogance and the good old "my approach to the sport is the way that everyone should see it" egotism, that people display both on here regularly, and on the slopes, are FAR worse words than "training".
Wanna speak about call outs? Calling training the "worst word in skiing" is a straight-up call out towards everyone who does enjoy training, and that includes a lot of really good people.
