Spin, I wish I could live in your world, where no one of any value skis on lift served, it's always puking snow, and anyone who isn't on seriously fat rockers is antiquated, stupid, or biased. Probably all three. The weird thing is that I've skied every major resort in the United States, many in Canada, and a few other odd places like AK, France, Italy, and Switzerland, and I've never seen that world of yours. Even when I go off over the other side, or hike to chutes, or go off into OB trees. Even when I'm with some locals. I keep seeing these amazing skiers, for sure, and a few are on big rockers but more (gasp) aren't. Fact is, they're often on all kinds of Spin-Incorrect skis. And what's worse, they don't seem to even worry that much about how outdated their gear is. I mean, who cares about that Jackson Hole Air Force guy; he's on old XXL's. Get a rocker, loser! Or that idiot at Chamonix on Mantras. Just because he has a chopper filming him, what does he know about real skiing? Mantras are for gapers. And when I see shots of Davenport wasting his talents on FX94's, or Olsson doing GS, it's just well, you know, sad. Knowing they could be sooo much happier on Praxis Pows or Toons.
Meanwhile I feel like the guy who got to Oz just after Dorothy had left, and everyone was drifting away home. But that's OK, I'll keep looking.
