There has been a lot of talk lately about the direction skiing is going particularly in the relation to Freestyle. This talk has been about the new AFP, FIS, Olympics and style in particularly with doubles and triples.
I have been in the mind set just like many others on NS that doubles and triples are going away from the style aspects of our great sport. Recently though I have came to some realization that this is not a matter of a trick being more technical it is a matter of the progression of skiing. In order for our sport to continue and to stay fresh there needs to be some awkward times where things are not so stylish. There was a time not too long ago when rodeo’s and 900s were not very stylish and seen as a more of a tech trick. There is a time when these doubles and triples will soon be much more stylish, and your favorite style skiers will be performing these tricks with the steeze you love to see. If you would like to see some evidence of this progression see Bobby’s triple where he has a real grab all the way through (even though this is not NS’s favorite style skier). So, rests assure NS it will all be good.
