The Evolution of Skiing ( Plake - Tahoe )

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

This second of a four-part episode showcases Lake Tahoe's past and present with Glen Plake taking us back in time with old-school gear while modern-day rippers descend on Heavenly.

wtf, JSQ isn't even a decent skier. you can not find 5 consecutive seconds anywhere of her skiing well. I'm so tired of all the hype over nothing, bunch of spoiled wealthy world hoppers lording it over regular skiers. screw them. and Glen, that's your statement? really?

Hey Dave--it was good to meet you at Squaw Valley a few days ago, but quit yer' bellyachin', would you? You have to look pretty hard to find anything not gorgeous, cool, and inspiring in that video clip above. Why so negative? As Plake said, it's just about, "did ya' have a good day out sliding around?" --isn't it?

"Snow's still white, Lake's still blue, and tips are still goin' up." Pretty good message, I say!

Best regards,
Bob

 I loved it.  I have a passion for skiing and for skiers with that same passion for skiing and life.  

In my 59th year of skiing andI still think every day about the sport.

This is from a Warren Miller movie a few years back.

 

@davluri - you conveniently left Lynsey Dyer out of your little rant, I noticed.  But seriously, who pissed in your cheerios?  For the record, Glen Plake would probably bring his own beer.

Cool vid! D, have to agree with what others are saying about your general negativity. You're on quite a roll lately. What's going on? You ok?

I was thinking the same thing. Glen and some others skiing pretty amazingly, and there was definitely some clearly worse technique with JSQ.

 

Cool video though! Glen's the man.
