Just because you can't do something, doesn't mean it's not safe. This is not true
And FWIW, you are WAY more likely to be injured or killed skiing on a blue run, losing control and sliding off trail into a tree than skiing in glades themselves. This is not true. I only agree with this for long flat cattracks in precarious locations.
I don't have beef with his videos, his skiing, or anything else like that; just the fact he doesn't ever have safety disclaimers (now slowly let that sink in), and his general attitude toward people well below his ability level.
But of course, God forbid any of you would know that becuase you didn't actually read the entirety of any of my posts (but let's be real, who does read more than a few sentences of anyone's posts?). Further, some of the concepts probably couldn't be understood by some of you (if you did read them), thus the insults.
If you all want to be hard-asses, I'm sure you're aware TGR forums exists.
Some of the comments above about: "oh you're a tool, you suck, you can't ski glades" are actually the problem with this site (and just make it a more refined version of TGR). It is this attitude that is the reason many people don't like bushwacker, and why many intermediate skiers feel poorly about their skiing after showing up here.
And yes, only 5% of skiers can ski glades like BWPA. Many more can ski glades, but not that fast.
to finndog who said "some of us like pushing ourselves," yeah don't we all. I don't have beef with where he skis, or where anyone else skis. But let's not kid ourselves 99% of us aren't pros, and our performance on "epic terrain" is going to be pretty gapic (relatively speaking), no matter how much fun we have.
