In my opinion they should also let the ladies hit it. I just read an article on freeskiier on the sustainability in womens slopestyle (http://freeskier.com/stories/mans-course-womens-slopestyle-skiing-sustainable), where the size matter on the features is being discussed, and it got me thinking.
We all know that there is a pretty big difference between men and womans when it comes to skiing (both mental and physical reasons ofc.), but how can we facilitate for the ladies to progress faster?
It may not be the whole solution, but i think letting in Womens Big Air at the X-games could do a whole lot!
Build a smaller kicker besides the large one, so they actually would dare to attempt the bigger tricks!
Grete says she would send it if the jumps were smaller, so if the jump is build right and is not too large we will most likley see bigger tricks. For all we know they would send progressive tricks of the big kicker too! Just look at the Nine Queens event!
We all know what happens when the pressure is on at the Men's big air both good and bad, but that's all part of the sport.
I think they deserve a shot at it and will also be a factor that will progress Womens slopestyle as well.
