I know that there are plenty of skiers who are way better than I am. I didn't start skiing young enough (I started at 17) or ski enough each season (only 20-30 days a season) to be a real ski God, but in the last few years, I have had a couple of what I consider to be good skiers, tell me that I am the best skier they have ever skied with. My answer is always the same, you need to get out and ski with more people because I am not the best skier I have ever skied with.
It is all relative. It reminds me of a defining moment for me about 20 some years ago at Breckenridge. My only 2nd trip out west and the first after I actually acquired a few skills. I believe I was on Mine Shaft or Devil's Crotch skiing alone as I had ditched my wife to have some fun. Anyway I had stopped for a breather and a really good skier came down and stopped right by me for a breather as well. I looked at him and said, "Dude you make it look so easy!" And then he took off.
I finished picking my way down and ended up on the chair with a fellow who I had spotted on the way down who in my eye was around my ability. He had also ditched his wife and I asked him to join me on another run down the same slope. I was leading, picking my way through the moguls, crud and whatever, stopping for a breather near where I had stopped before. He stops right next to me,as I am huffing and puffing for air, looks me in the eyes and says, "Dude, you make it look so easy!" At that moment I realized that maybe I was a wee bit better than I had thought I was.
In my ski club, I will ski with anyone and folks appreciate that I am not a ski snob, only skiing with the elite. I enjoy encouraging others to be better skiers and sharing tips that I have learned over the years. Afterall, that is how I got better, by skiing with those better than me and discussing techniques with them amd learning from them. Of course there are always those skiers, destined to be mediocre for their entire lives because when you try to help them, they have ready made excuses as to A: they are already doing that (they aren't) or B: they can't because......some lame excuse.
In the end, you are only as good as you strive to become.
