Bump MA - Page 6  

post #151 of 159

LOL

 

Josh, I was being serious.  I was trying to give you a compliment.  I have done a lot of trying to make friends with you on this thread.  Have you not noticed?  If you were doing the same we wouldn't be having this problem.  The fact that you thought I wasn't serious shows a big difference between my approach in this thread and yours. 

 

I didn't know that video was from 2006.  The new one is a little better, you're right.

You really just can't stand me, can you?  It's ridiculous.

I did not notice any year on that video, nor did I really look.  I just looked at some videos on the front of your channel.  That's all.

is this really happening. now you either playing dumb or are really one of the worst MA eyes on this site. if you going to give me a compliment do not pick what may be the worst video of me skiing on the web and post it up.

I didn't look at your videos all that thoroughly.  I'm sorry.  I cannot believe you're now mad at me for trying to give you a compliment... because it wasn't a good enough compliment???

I think its a good question...and in reality , I would argue there are times when there is no difference.

 

Having said that, the technical line to me, is when you set a rythm (turn shape, speed, tempo), and maintain that down the run...regardless of the bumps. 

 

Zipper line is when the turn shape, tempo, speed, is set for you by the bumps/pitch.  Its why "mogul courses" used in competition are created as they are....a good rythm, tempo is skied to develop the bumps (using good skiers or a machine in some cases)...this is then reflected in the bumps, creating a good zipperline.  This of course doesnt happen on an open regular bump hill, so its very rare to find a good long zipper line on regular runs open to the public....3-4 turns is typically all you get.

I looked at the "Point and Chute" video briefly, by the way, I just thought the other one was a steadier shot where it was easier to see your skiing clearly.  I cannot believe I am now apologizing for giving a compliment.  What are you doing Josh???

Ok I left this open to allow a reply that was in progress when I locked it and had to step away from my computer before it was submitted. That was a mistake apparently. This is now locked and closed with a firm "just let it go this is just talking about skiing on the internet" reminder for future conversations.

holy shit, boys ... 

 

I don't know Blake, but he seems nice enough. And I'm pretty sure no one who has ever skied with Josh had a bad day. The internet is usually a fun thing to get all of us weirdo ski obsessed people together, but sometimes it does other weird things. You both should come to Abasin this week, and I'm pretty sure we would all have fun.
