Well depends on what kind of skiing you really like to watch I guess, aside from the scoring system. To each his own.
My interest switched to watching big mountain comps and freestyle events these days whereas racing is meanwhile boring me to pieces sometimes. No disrespect to the athletes involved meant here though.
As of now many younger kids/folks rather show interest in freeskiing than racing. This is definitely the current trend and supposed to last, meaning racing will likely continue losing share and importance.
