The 97%/99.997% humor was directed at the history of the mellow-groomer freecarve crew on here of claiming to be better than 97% of skiers, or in some cases 98%, or in some cases saying they don't see good skiers anywhere in the front range, etc. etc. In this case, hearing that Heckuva can make any shape turn at any time on any terrain was hilarious, and more of the same. Heckuva's statement in this thread that "those who hold other ideas on the topic have probably never truly had their hips forward when skiing so arguing something they don't understand and haven't experienced is not productive" is another rather funny but typical debating approach of the mellow groomer crew. What makes it all particularly amusing is that, based on the viddie that Heckuva chooses to put of up of himself making turn after turn on mellow groomers, he is in fact generally backseat and not getting forward. And that's just on a mellow groomer.
