ever since the start i've never felt skiing was uncool or anything like that, but yeah i guess in a way you're right. skiing is way more appealing right now than a few years back...
wathever the direction sking take, I don't care till I can ski. and I completely agree with you!
all i was trying to say earlier too was just that, thinking that small things that are side effects of a overall positive trend are inevitable, and we should just take it in stride. do i think henriks tall tees are ridiculous? yes, and many agree. many more disagree. however, i think just about everybody feels his skiing, and thats what matters. i feel like almost every "issue" in skiing is like this. kids are growing up skiing only park, cant ski pow. ok, well, so they grow up on the east coast with no mentors and few and far between pow days. hopefully they will develop a passion for skiing as a sport, and will eventually take the initiative to become more well rounded.
this is kinda my thinking. trying to make grand sweeping statements is just overkill, at least in this stage of the game. we can do that when we have a burton and a shaun white.
