Sorry, bro usually your posts are legit and well informed but this is utter rubbish. Harlaut was probably the best rail skier to enter the comp that i'm not disputing and taking tactics into account here that makes hime probably the best man for the job.
How ever, James Woods slays jumps better than most(if not all) of the people that entered the comp, he has dub corks on lock and maybe isn't a world class jibber but to say mentioning England was a disgrace is pretty stupid. Just so you know, Joe Tomlinson, from England, did a dub cork 14 first go last month. Unity prod have been on multiple rail trips this season i think you are going see the real extent of UK skiings ability when that footy drops. And thats just England.
Lets talk about what i saw when i was in France... I can't spell his first name and i can't even say his second but I saw a guy called Guilemme(or something, hes pro on head?) do a swdub10 one day, then i went up skiing the next day and saw him do the same trick the other way, how many people in the world can do that? I saw some incredible rail tricks from riders that weren't even sponsored and dubs from guys that only get minimal hook ups. I think the reason you think Scandinavia is way ahead is cos you live there, you see whats going on sooner or even first hand, now im not saying there aren't TONS of the most technical and stylish skiiers out up there but I just think the way you think of european skiing is completely wrong.
Oh and btw, Lolo and Mik D are from those countrys you listed and they will out-steeze anyone.
