1) He is always super stoked on skiing.
2) He is one of the greatest at skiing pipe.
3) He helped found Armada, a badass freeskiing brand when there wasn't alot of popularity.
4) He makes some sick video segments, whether it be park jumps, rails, or big mountain.
5) He has practically broken most of his lower body and still has the willpower to come back and ski. Alot of these "new" guys would have quit a long time ago.
6) He is crazy as fuck, and gives bored people like yourself something to talk about.
7) He is one of the VERY FEW to excel in all areas of skiing, he isn't just some one-trick-pony like almost every other skier out there today. Oh and did I mention he has style? Yes, he has that too.
8) And yes, he did help make freeskiing popular. So shut up you fucking sarcastic cocksucker, and give Tanner the respect you give all the other pros who have helped the sport.
