Replying to Is skiing's gnarliness in decline?
Hear me out. For those of you old enough, do you remember the days of Seth Morrison's rodeos/gigantic backflips off of massive cliffs? How about Scott Hibbert's double backflip attempts in the quarter pipe contest? Candide's big bertha jump/invitational? Huge gaps to rails by McFeezy and Wallisch? Dumont boosting huge in the halfpipe? I could go on, but I digress.
What I'm trying to say is that I feel as if skiing isn't going as big anymore. Or is it just me? I feel like the spins/tricks have gotten more complex, but the level of magnitude hasn't really increased. Has everything hit a plateau these last few years?
Just a thought. Not trying to stir up beef.
