He is really sick, but I don't think he is THAT underrated. Not as much BC content on here as there is over at TGR and other forums and I think that plays into it. Everyone really appreciates what he does and we all know he's a badass mountain man. So as far as the big mountain/pow sector of freeskiing goes, I think he's top taco, and gets quite a bit of recognition.
Now someone that is really underrated, Chad Sayers.
There are a lot of people who have never even heard of Chad. And while many of you may have never heard of Chad, I can almost guarantee you that you have seen him if you have picked up a ski magazine in the last five years. Him and Jordan Manly get some seriously $$$ shots, and he is just such a solid skier, and Jordan is such a solid photog. So when they work together they absolutely nail it, and that's why he is super underrated IMO.

I wouldn't say he is underrated. It's just here on NS. It's the same reason why Hornbeck won over Candide

wait... newschoolers demonstrating a lack of respect and acknowledgment for seriously sick skiers that excel in areas other than than the park. Hoji is one of the best skiers in the world and anyone that knows anything about skiing should be able to see that. He may seem underrated but thats because your probably getting your skiing news from newschoolers when 95% of the members of this website think a fucking k-fed is sicker than charging a massive line in AK or earning your turns slaying pillows in BC.
While Hoji is an amazing skier, he definitely isn't underrated or under appreciated as much as you guys are saying. Every couple threads I see his name pop up nowadays, which, of course he completely deserved. Hes sorta like Delorme in the way that everyone says hes under appreciated, but everyone still talks about them all the time.

This thread made me think back to the days before park when all skiers were forced to look up to big mountain slayers like Scot Schmidt, Trevor Peterson, Eric Pehota, Plake etc. you know, REAL SKIING on REAL MOUNTAINS.
But rail dancing is good for the industry, and it warms my heart when I read posts about kids planning trips out to Whistler and asking about the park and urban spots. More $ for the industry, less people skiing good terrain.
idk bout underrated. ask anyone, they'll tell you hoji fucking slays
