What type of skier do you want to be?
Interpret this how you want but as a skier who or what do you want to be. I want to be a big mountain skier. I want to ski the steep and deep and jump everything in between.
I've been lucky to grow up skiing at a hill in the Midwest with a large variety of terrain. I've had a taste of park skiing, trees, moguls, cliffs, ect.
When I'm not in the park, I feel happier. No waiting to drop, less people, and more variety. I could stay in the Midwest and ski man-made stuff, or I could move to Wyoming and ski the gnarliest terrain in the country... that's the easiest decision I'll ever make.
The one that is having the most fun.... CACAW
I'd like to ski like Leo taillefer, but my body can't handle that. So Im just tryna ski like a pollard-sage mix. They make skiing look fun but not scary... even though I'd piss my pants on every AK line sage has ever stood above.
i just want to enjoy my time on the snow and have fun. I will def end my park career around my mid 20's and i just want to have fun skiing
I'd love to be a big mountain skier but I live in Pennsylvania, so park and groomers will have to suffice until I become old enough to travel alone.
I want to eventually be so comfortable riding switch when I'm older that I could ride an entire day switch. Then I can find a milf in the lodge and she'll say "Why have you been riding the hill backwards all day?" and then I'll say "because I want to see you do the same thing to me all night."
I want to be a pro skier. Just like tom wallishc is!!!!
I want to be a former skier.
Someone who can shred the whole mountain competantly and do the occasional 3, 5, or backflip off of natural features, maybe hit the park every once in a while but just do simple stuff on rails and the like. But at least be good at the simple stuff that I would do. Right now I can ski most of the mountain well but not expertly and I can't do more than a 180 off of small features and in the limited time I've tried rails I've made it to the end of the rail maybe 10 times. Hopefully I can change most of this next winter, but I'll only have around 20 days of skiing to do so.
Be that Parker White/Tanner Rainville type of skier.
I want to improve my jump game but just a park skier a mix of jumps and rails
The guy who's 45 who's pulling backs of cliffs.
I just want to be that dude going huge on all natural airs. The occasional steezy, slow 360 or backflip. Fast and hard, just how I like it
Ski acting is where it's at
If I could, I would be Delorme, no doubt. My knees could not handle that much send though nor am I anywhere close to that skiing ability level. A man can dream though right?
trying to adjust to not skiing gangsta...but should I?
I don't want to think about skiing or my skis ...in the same way I don't think about walking or my legs or my shoes. Everything becomes one. Also, I'm not someone who needs other people to look at me.. that's painfully obvious to me, but many need to be adored.... and this includes having some brand attached to my body.
Gotta be feeling good always.
When I grow up I want to be a 72 year old or older skier so I can get a free pass.
The kind that walks up hill a lot and smells really bad.
gee whiz, i sure would like to be a racer, those guys in their skin tight suits really get my blood flowin
more jossi wells style but ripping everywhere on the mountain not just the park!
The one who's getting paid for travel around the world for powy places....
I WANNA BE THE TYPE OF SKIER THAT SKIS FAST DOES BIG LIP DISASTERS AND CORK 7 BLUNTS THAT SMOKES A LOT OF WEED AND DRINKS EVEN MORE BEER
but i'll only be that skier who skis fast and smokes a lot of weed and drinks even more beer.
The type that pretends to be a gaper but still pulls off backies on snow blades
Over the past couple of years touring bindings have set up shop on multiple pairs of my skis, and I've been pretty damn stoked on it. I've been pretty happy earning my turns and enjoying liftless mountains.
