Park skiing culture project
I'm doing a project on park skiing culture and looking for some help. What are some of the rules that have died off or changed as the sport grew and as timed passed. And what do you think the golden rule of park skiing is now. Thanks
The golden rule is on every terrain park sign- respect gets respect.
I would say that it is important to show how the clothing people wore when the sport first started was an instant identification of another freeskier. Now, ( I saw this in another thread) people can get saga and barely know what freesking really is other than another type of skiing with the addition of jumps and rails/boxes. Freeskiing is a culture that is so much more than that to me, and whenever people who do not understand the culture of it, or just shit on it and ignore explanations about it call me out, I tend to get aggressive because its something I enjoy more than anything to the point where my life is going to revolve around it after college.
-The visual signals of our culture
-Its not fun to hear people shit on what you love, especially when people dont understand
Golden Rule - Definitely respect others. i think that to be in ability level, don't make fun of kids that are worse than you, you were there too. so in a way it just is the regular golden rule, treat others the way you wish (or wished) to be treated.
Rules that have died off - not many true "rules" have died off but things like style and trick faux pas have, thing like intentional shuffle, Tokyo drifts, after bang (leaning back on landing) etc have become cool despite their history of being signs of sloppiness.
park skiing really hasnt been around for that long. I would talk rather about how younger skiers changed skiing from downhill to maybe moguls and then park/freestyle i think it would give you a longer time line rather than just a 20 -30 year period even though it has changed a lot
Someone can be considered a good skier now if they can only ride park well. I think thats a major thing. Back in the day park took a huge back seat to actual skiing..now its just as popular if not more than all mountain especially at smaller mountains
