Ski Slang 2011/2012 edition - Page 3

post #61 of 68

My lack of color coordination when I was a teenager was the result of being lazy and just grabbing whatever.  The way kids will now obsess over their look in the mirror and post pictures looking for critiques is pretty funny.

Anti-color-co-ordination is important.  My thoughts on how it looks are not important. and that's how things should be.  biggrin.gif

Yo! dudes, recall your history: the long baggy thing was classic urban hip hop appropriated by white surburban kids. Then migrated to slopes. As was a lot of the mumbled slang (pause for finger placement loosely adapted from gang signs of the 80's). Extra points for dead flat brimmed baroquely decorated baseball cap worn correctly (no, not sideways or backwards, that's way over). Looseness definitely anti-function/Paris fashion at the time, but not random, and totally tasteful if you're in that subculture. Rarely bright (you're confusing Euro-trash with god-fearing American kids), although patterned checks etc. back when we were all in our backpacking parkas. And not anti-color, just not yawn-fire-engine-red, so points off. Look at last few seasons, lot of understated brown plaids, tasteful earth tones, pin stripes, avalanche white, but yep, very carefully put together, suitable fabrics for the boardroom, and guaranteed to make you impossible to locate in a tree well.

Fortunately there aren't many trees located in the terrain parks.  wink.gif

Odd, but not entirely the case. at Squaw, there is a tree right below a jump in the park, the small park. a guy wanted to hit it with his tails. he went too straight at it and just smashed straight into the tree. he kinda' collapsed at the base and moaned. ouch!
