Hahaha - anyone who was to tell me that they 'ski the blacks' would make me lead them on a little to see what else they would come up with. I don't think I've ever met anyone who really knew what they were doing that used a line like that. It's funny listening to them pat themselves on the back.
A quick story from last year at Killington - Bear Mt. - I was making my way down Bear Trap, it was pretty bumped up. I'm not much of a bumper, I prefer high speed carving but there was a guy that blew by me that made me stop and watch. He was flying. Simply amazing, the guy had one leg, and he was doing better than everyone that I could immediately see.
The truth be told - there's always someone out there that is better than you.
