Ok, to clarify. There is one person who it would appear seems to think that there's some real world correlation between video game skiing and 1:1. Hope that helps you my man, VS. smile.gif   Enough hijack. I'm out.

In truth, I was adding a mindless comment to a thread.  Not everything I post is intended to be completely serious.

Markojp - Sort of.

 

I was at the Calgary Ski Show years (and years!) ago.  Right near the entrance they had a ski game set up.  It was one of those full size 'simulators' that you stood on to control the skis.  There were 20 teenage boys (surprise) lined up for their turns, on a simulated Hahnenkamm downhill.

 

Dave Irwin was standing right beside me (none of the kids appeared to recognize him - too bad) watching.  The terrain on the screen flew by, The kids were not doing all that well.

 

I asked him if the apparent speed was realistic.   He said it was spot on.  It was SCARY fast.  I would NEVER make it as a World Cup level racer.

 

As to the original question, I enjoy all of them.   I also really like ski-cross actually.  I will NOT watch anything that has 'judging' as part of the scoring.

GS, the purest form of racing.  GS requires everything to win...turning skills, athleticism, and no mistakes.  However, when I did race I loved downhills for the adrenaline, danger and speed.  Can't imagine racing on some of the DH courses in Europe with the high speeds, crazy terrain, and gnarly course setting.  Raced in the era before SG but I probably would have loved that discipline and enjoy watching it.  It has elements of both GS and DH and would be a close second to GS in my opinion.

So far I've only competed in SL and GS. Of the two I prefer GS. DH is definitely my favorite to watch and it looks like it would be the most fun to compete in. I may branch out to speed events in the next couple of years.

     Duel GS, the pro style format with the pro bumps
