I heard that he is not going to do anymore comps and he wasn't doing to many anyways but for real none? Not even the X-GAMES? If so i understand cuz his legs have to be fucked after chads gap and now this. Just wondering if anybody has any better info bout what he plans on doing in his future?
i got the impression that he was relieved to be done competing. it must be stressful to have to maintain podium finishes at the x-games each year when you're reaching his age. each year there's gonna be another xavier bertoni added to the ranks, he was gonna have to make the call to transition his career at some point--from reading an interview with him from earlier this year (i think with symms), i got the feeling that he was relieved to have the decision made for him.
tanner will be skiing next summer, pow in chile, and possibly a lil park/pipe at nz at the end of the year. how ever he will not be competing, he will just be filming banger pow segments, and working with a catskiing opperation that he and another pro skier owns, (other skiers name slips my mind.)
No one is saying hes retiring, he had an interview earlier this year where he said he wouldn't be competing in xgames this year and by the sounds of it hes just leaving the competition scene in general. That doesn't mean he retiring, sorry i don't have a link.
If you think about it, he probably wont even be able to walk by the time hes 35 if he keeps messing up his legs. havent heard anything about him not wanting to compete at all when he gets back tho.....
Think about it, yout Tanner Hall you've won X games like 9 times and competed in about every other comp around in your career. You;ve taken some big falls and had a few decent injuries. Your a skiing icon. You can either ski deep pow everyday and take trips to Japan and Chile ect OR train pipe so you can compete. I know what i'd be doing in his situation. Competing gets old.
i agree with this but tanner is a very competitive athlete. Maybe some people like to compete more than ski fresh pow all the time (not saying that i do) but you im sure anyone would be lying if they said they didnt like competing anymore after doing it their whole life..just my two cents tho..
dude tanner just wants to ski fresh powder everyday and take it easy and perhaps light up some nice blunts to his face while hes shreddin some bc and just take it easy and have fun with it like everybody else should be doing lol

Thats i real great point. Just have been a huge fan of his sense his first x-games and Johney Mosley Mad Trix. He got me into freestyle skiing and is my idol. Just love watching him take out the young rippers at x and show that hes still the shit. Well whatever he does hes the man ad i hope he gets better.
well if thats the case its really to bad. so far hes the best half pipe skier to ever live.
everyones gotta put it down someday though.
