Pud... your analysis may or may not be true.
I was skiing with a guy from Stowe... I told him that I "knew" a guy from Stowe who I had an impression of, that impression being.... that if he was half as good as he thought he was, he would be twice a good as anyone else. When I gave out the name he about rolled off his chair laughing and told me that was a pretty spot on analysis and that Josh was the first guy he though of when I gave that description.
I think that Josh is generally correct in what he says. His message gets lost in his attitude, which may be a byproduct of his age and/or insecurity. I don't know for sure as I have never met Josh IRL. I personally would love to ski with him and have reached out on several occasions and never heard back. Joshs' abuse of the English language doesn't help his case much in my eyes. This being said... Epic would be a much more boring place without BWPA and I do generally enjoy the videos. Without content, there is no forum. BWPA certainly provides content. Much more so than myself or any of the haters out there who only comment on his content without adding anything new to the discussion.
FWITW.... That video of Dan Eagan was not very impressive. If they didn't say it was him, I would have thought it was some hack. I have seen Eagan in other videos and have always thought he was pretty good. Who knows why he looks so bad in this one? I generally don't like to get involved in comparing myself to other skiers and know that Eagan is way better than me, but I feel like I ski better on most days than Dan showed in "that" video. As was stated above ... Who Cares? It's hardly worth the thread highjack and all the posturing.

It's bad enough when he over states his skiing or MB riding, but I am sick of his attacks on other skiers who are clearly superior to him. This forum would be a better place without him.
