It could just be me but I feel like lately, I've been hearing a lot more about the "golden age of skiing" or the "good ole days" and I'm growing tired of it. People act, and a lot of the people who are now well out of college that also say, that things were "just bigger" or "it was more about style" and lastly "We were all rebels. None of you kids now can understand." And look I get it, times have changed as the recent "matrix" newschoolers video showcased there are some current dumb trends in skiing, but let's face it there is still so much awesome stylish skiing out there. However, I feel like people don't give those edits the same viewing as they would a "golden age" edit and that really gets on my nerves.
Take for example
^ Here we have an edit with a lot of style, creativity, and the guy goes big as fuck.
So why will that edit never compare to an edit like this?
Or why doesn't an edit like this.....
Compare to and edit like this?
I am in no way bashing these older edits I'm merely saying we still get stuff from up and comers who are absolutely killing it but aren't getting the respect they deserve because peoples nostalgia blinds them from seeing past the "Good ole days". (Or should I say the Ghood ole days) I'm sorry if someone has already posted this but I couldn't help but notice an uptick in the amount of "good ole day" talk and just had to say something. Now that that's over guess I'll just prepare for the incoming waves of hate and backlash.....
