Thanks, Phil....

Wow. I kind of assumed everyone was familiar with that. Then Trotski calls it an disgusting racist stereotype??? Whatever.

Oh, by the way, the picture in my post is a picture of the actual actor who said that line in the movie. I think everyone's homework assignment should be to go watch Hot Dog, the movie.

Going to have to get facts straight with Newfydog before posting esoteric facts from the Way Back machine...

Thanks, Dog!

The best skier is to vague to quantify. The bears that stand out in my mind are maybe not the best skiers. They are the best teachers and communicators that I have met in skiing. The others that stand out in my mind are the skiers who came here intermediates and as a result of inspiration from this forum are now outstanding skiiers. My hat is off to every last one of them.

alot of epicskiers I ski with arent really worse than me but they are diffenently not as confindent in thier ablities as myself while on steeper terrain. Al they need to do is relize they can do it.
My Name has been summonsed from the dead on this pre-Halloween day and I shall respond only to the ridiculous and this thread serves well.... After reading this thread so far :and taking into account what has been said (Not Much!) and in order to reply accurately to the original question at hand my response is as follows.

I have only skied with two people from this thread Bushwacker and Carbonismo. While I feel that these two are amazing skiers, they are for totally different reasons.....

Carbonismo is an Old School meets New School skier. Having been raised on North Eastern Blue Ice and touring most of the obscure mountains there (Madd River, Jay Peak, and many others I am not familiar with) in the day when bindings consisted of a single clip down behind the boot connected to two tension cords, he skies with precision and elegance. His style is impeccable and he can transition from this fall-line skiers edge (Where his Torso looks like it is sitting on the living room couch with constant & rapid side to side motion as he floats down the slope) to the newer style giant turns using both edges of the parabolic designed skies through groomers, and also leading or hanging right on top of the group while the glades / trees are attacked in the powder. He is the authority to sensible approach of any type of skiing and always finds adventure with a huge smile on his face.

Bushwacker is quite the opposite, young testosterone filled, no fear, let's almost get ourselves killed approach way of skiing. (Well not really get ourselves killed) just adventurous to the maximum. Bushwacker loves the unknown and is constantly seeking this on the hill, it's like seeing two difference people on and off the slopes, something just clicks in his mind when the slide begins under his skies and all else in his surroundings gets transformed to him and the mountain, the view ahead and the challenge beyond. Having skied with Bushwacker many times, we gel this way in our skiing approach and both of us enjoy the attack and the triumph, accomplishing hucking, Piste and off Piste, Powder Hounding, Trees and deep glades and did I forget climbing... Yes, alot of climbing (with two skies in hand cross-chested digging into the ascent on various unthinkable climbs) to some amazing sites and even better POW skiing that I never would imagine to have exist where no other tracks have been made. Although I had videos of and pictures of some of these adventures, my hard drive which contained them got ripped off while I was in Italy this summer. So here is an early ski adventure from this year, that I could have only wished to have been part of:, that Bushwaker accomplished.... the video speaks for itself, right click and copy then paste in your IE as to watch it if the link doesn't work: http://www.pitonproductions.com/SkiingVids/AltaAir.wmv

So the real question of this thread is not just who you think the best skier is here (that you've skied with), but it is also why do you think that and describe your reasons!

The Bottom Line.... Having fun and feeling accomplished at any level from the beginner level to expert or from getting back on the piste post a debilitating occurrence, what ever it is you do, it's you and that mountain and we all win the star prize with a smile on our face at the end of the day.

I shall now go back to the dead, my work is completed here... :

I saw HDTM so long ago that I actually saw it in a theater!

Maybe I need a refresher course.

Me too mdf, I think it was in Cinemscope and was definitely in color. Fun movie! I always wanted to ski off the top of Gold Coast Bldg after that movie.

Idiots....

I am the best skier east of the Tappan Zee Bridge. I proved it already five years ago RIGHT HERE. And I'm even better today because I lost 5 pounds since then. So you can probably even forget about the bridge altogether right now.

Thanks. Please close this thread.

If this were TGR I could wake up after passing out and EDIT/ Delete my stupid post.

On a serious note.

I have seen some real good skiers from this forum, BUT. Mr. shoelaces does have some skills.

He will point his skis down stuff that I and many others just will not do.

And then he looks good doing it!
