As you all may not know I ski. I mostly ski Mt Hood because I pretty much live here. If you've been to Timberline this summer you've seen me I rock a blue red and navy blue windbreaker with like a sunhat type of whatchamacallit. I'm definately not the best skier on the mountain because I don't try to be. Although if you saw me ski you're probably one of the dudes or babes that threw a few "Yeeww"s my way.
So let me cut to the real discussion. I just got done talking with a dude whos skiing is defintely respectable but not something to brag about. I talked about how much fun I had at the mountain, and invited him to come shred with me. His reply was basically "I dont know if I want to ski with you until I see you ski". I was shitting bricks. How do you see me ski if you don't want to ski. If you want a video or something you're asking the wrong guy. Why can't we just go skiing and have fun for once? Are there other douches out there like you that turn down invitations to FREE SKIING. Isn't Freeskiing just that? Isn't it about being Free at heart? Shouldn't skiing be about having fun not trying to be a showboat motherf***. I feel like this dude represents a larger demographic of skiers and snowboarders.
I understand if you are making a movie, or training for a comp., you want to make money out of skiing, and you don't want to just Ski thats cool dude. But Some of us just want to go skiing, make new friends and experiences is that Too much to ask for?
