You are such a jerk. Whoops, no, I don't know you personally, so maybe in person you are not a jerk, but your posts are from a person acting like a jerk. Grow up. I read lots of posts here on EpicSki, can't ski like you, will never ski like you, I like EpicSki, read it almost daily, love skiing, pay attention to what you post knowing it applies ONLY to expert-experts. You will not like me, and you will put me down, because I'm not a skier of your capabilities. What you say on this forum is technically is good, and worthy of consideration. But your attitude towards others who do not agree with you, who do not ski like you, who do not know what you know and have the experience you have, is abominable. You put people down. Why? What do you get from doing that? Isn't knowing you rock as a skier enough for you, without attempting to humble strangers over the internet? Do you have any idea what it feels like to be bashed by you? I'm bracing myself right now. I'm preparing to laugh, by the way.
I'm getting tired of your continuous attacks on people who don't agree with your view here on Epic. There are lots of skiers reading on EpicSki. They number in the thousands. They certainly aren't all clones of you. They aren't all expert-experts. Not being a clone of you is not embarrassing, shameful, regrettable, wrong-minded, disrespectful, nor anything else negative. Even you, in your exquisite skiing gloriousness, were once a novice skier.
If we were all clones of you, there would be no reason to have EpciSki. Everyone would know everything, and we would all agree. With YOU. You would have no forum where you could publicly put others down. Think about it for a minute. That wouldn't be good, would it?
It needs repeating -- grow up. Regular readers on Epic know you're a great skier. It's time for you to stop putting people down who don't see the world through BushwackerinPA-colored-lenses. Some people happily and eagerly face different challenges than you do. Not thinking like you is not a defect. Get right with the world of "others," BWPA. It's you who are socially "lame" here on the internet. I hope for your sake it's different in real life, and that you don't put others down continually when you are talking with them face-to-face.
How old are you, anyway? 15 years old?
I only put down closed minded people who think that there way is the only way. I will continue to do it. sorry.
my first post, did not state how awesome I was or anything, I just stated that discounting WC bumpers is so trendy. Nailbender and his legions have great things to add but to sit there and say its the only way to ski bumps is what is wrong.
Me trying to be 'nice" makes my head spin. I would rather say what I think is right, say it with convection and authority and see if it stands up. There are enough people in my life that I am not really here to make friends, and changing what I post to make friends would be about the lamest thing ever. "say what you want, and be who you are, those who mind do not matter, and those that matter do not mind". I will continue to live by that.
what I say never applies to expert-expert what I say works for everyone, and what I have been saying in this entire thread is that skills can trump line any day in bump skiing, and that there is no such thing as a bad line be it the zipper-line or the ridiculous named 'technical line".
I got a job, probably the sweetest ski bum job in stowe, just for being me.
