He succedded at being a pro skier for 14 years, it's logical for him to move to another aspect of the sport.
He didnt try to compete at today's standard of competition, he just wanted to judge and give his opinion on what comp skiing should/could by being a judge. It didnt work out, he quits and tell us why.
Gives you another perspective on pro skier life after their pro years are over? Yes
Pro skiing has its way to suck you in its lifestyle and then spit you out with not much left except memories of good times and a bunch of injuries.
I'll be stoked to see whatever you throw down Lolo.
Some of the comments in here are so off base and out of whack. NS has been one of the best things to happen to skiing but also one of the worst. This is proof. All of you 16 years olds living in the cities who go on your annual ski trip with your family, stfu. Do your self a favor and if you don't know who created this thread don't post.
On another note, I am sad to hear this from you Lolo. You were always one of the most innovative skiers on snow. With the immergance of double corks and FIS based judging criteria innovators like you are harder and harder to come by. I hope that you will remember why you got into skiing in the first place, to have fun with your friends (at least that is why I did).
