I also really like the site design, especially the forum, its so clean. No like other forums where people have huge ridiculous images as signatures. The add placement is also nice, I hate forums that have adds in between posts.
Interacting with people who love the sport as much as I do. Plain and simple. There is no one in my life who loves it like I do, obsesses over new gear, snowfall, edits, etc. Other than my mother who has retired from the freeskiing game after a broken tibia two seasons ago, (she could backflip in the '80s, claim?), there is no one imrl who shares this passion.
Most of the moderators are actually pretty lenient except for a few... Which is pretty tight. Most members aren't complete dicks, the video section is awesome. And the fact I fucking love this website so damn much.

If frenchy doesn't like you. Nobody should... fuckin pussy. - montville57
Frenchy has been back. He never left. He is with us in our hearts everywhere we go all we have to do is recognize him.
Frenchy would kick your ass, I don't even know him and I can say that with confidence.
The sheer amount of people that are on here, the unified passion. And the relationships that stem from it. I have met some great long term friends through here! I love it. I wish I was more addicted to it than I am currently. ahahha
My favorite thing about newschoolers: it IS freeskiing.
Freeskiing is still in its infancy, and is by no means a large sport yet. However, I cannot think of another site that has a similar influence in the discipline it revolves around, where the participants can express their thoughts and the industry can (and does) grow upon that feedback.
Think about it, there are THOUSANDS of kids, adults, industry members, content creators, brands, and sponsors all connected through this one site. There are members from all over the world who are able to pitch in their thoughts, ideas, videos, photos, words, anything they want into the mix. That means that in theory, and often in practice, any member with an idea can have a ripple effect that is heard throughout the ENTIRE sport. Whatever is consumed by some of the youngest visitors can also be seen by the big wigs at any of the major ski industry companies, and whoever wants to build upon the idea is more than able to do so. EVERYONE PLAYS A ROLE.
It's fucking fantastic that as a site, Newschoolers realizes the power it holds within and plays to its strengths. The home page and rating system are a damn good example that the members (aka the ones passionate about the sport) are the ones that determine what direction we head in. It's not a select few given the power to decide what's cool and what isn't, its everyone has the ability to join together in pushing the latest trends. NS has taken this standard concept of media control, ripped it up, and tossed it out in the garbage.
