I am disappointed and disheartened by this discussion.
I had a dream that we would one day live in a world where a skier is judged, not by the color of their boots or jacket, but by their rotary movements, edge control, balance, and pressure. Clearly, that is a dream yet unfulfilled.
'Course, in that same dream every valley was to be exalted, and every hill and mountain would be made low--something which, fortunately, hasn't happened yet, either.
Ant, are you serious about the A-Frames? Thiose aren't even Oakley goggles she's wearing.
Please, this is an intelligent discussion about skiing, and you're off talking about the sort of eyewear the skier has. :
I mean, if you want to get down to the levels of co-ordination, it's great to see someone who has baskets that match their boots. That takes a certain level of style.
WTF WTFH, at least she is wearing eye protection of some sort whereas you're talking about baskets? She isn't carrying a basket surely you can see that in her hands she has poles and nothing over her shoulders or arms? She hasn't even got a rucksack on so who knows what you are going on about.
I move to strike WTFH's comments from the record and WTFH from the forum.
I don't live anywhere near Cambridge. If you ever listened to a word anyone said you would probably know that! As for a real man.... it's not a real man she wants, it's only me.
Having wathced Good Will Hunting last night the whole thing seems a little silly now so I may have to go see a girl!
Anyway enough about that. Oh sorry I didn't take the mickey about you implying you're a real man but I think I'll let the laughter eminating from computer screens all around the world answer that one for you!!
