CyanicenineThe money isn't there, and the culture isn't there either. Most the women competing also have to work full time at a real job. It's far less likely that you'll have parents enrolling their little girl to freestyle camps and coaching from a young age (like kelly sildaru) which is what you need in order to compete at the level you are expecting. If you do the math most of the ex women pros are worse off in life after their ski career, their bodies are broken, they have medical bill debt, and they have to try to find a new career in a job market that they are now 10 years experience behind in. Competing at a pro level doesn't make sense unless you've been training since you could walk and have some sort of guarantee of monetary success, even then as a parent you're probably better off training your daughters to be the next chess genius or something else that is far less risky.
I love women’s skiing
It gets me stoked to see tricks no matter what
there is female ski racers out there too - somehow women having broken bodies from skiing and having to work a real job to pay the way requires more sympathy than men?
Should do the big tricks before you get the big cheque... not the other way
In fact I’d say the opposite... much rather ski with a girl than a guy && she getting pro tips from me...
