    Not to turn this into a total lovefest - but you got good bump skillz...

Anyway, I figured using a song titled "Bittersweet" for a soundtrack was appropriate, as skiing spring bumps in the middle of December was indeed bittersweet. Anyway, enjoy:

    It's a big file (18 MB) so it may take a while to download. Just a great day!
    I have a long way to go before I can think of starting to ski bumps. But, you guys make bump skiing seem like a blast!

    The JimG blooper reel is priceless. But to JimG's credit, he bounced right back up and finish the run.

    I have always wondered why an old man like JimG used twin-tips. Now I know.

    Indeed. Jim truly is a total in control skier, but the dance with that mogul just had to be shared... It's ironic cuz a run or two before that Pat and I were begging Jim to just bobble a little bit so we wouldn't look so sloppy. He truly commands his run and is a pleasure to watch ski. Colin and Skip definitely rock the bumps too. They both make it look so effortless. Pat is always fun to watch attck the bumps in that balls to the wall old school fashion. I'm definitely the least skilled of the bumpers yesterday, but it was fun trying to keep up!
    I ski double black diamonds.

    2Knees you got the bump form down primo. owning it up...

    2knees,

    You nailed a couple of nice absorption with the knees; around 3:14 to 3:19. Did it feel like you where centered?

    But overall, you’re still in the back seat. You could have driven the tips down but it looks like you’re relying on jetting your skis as you crest the bump to hit the up coming landing target, kind of a catch-22. The more jetting, the harder it is to stay centered. From the side, it looks like the hips is still back, got to bring it forward, got to practice that on the flats.

    You think maybe its cause that's all you want to ski?

    Guys in the Vid.

    Greg - I didn't know you where so good. You rip the bumps.
    DMC - I know nothing about snowboarding technique, but my eyes and common sense tell me you're great at it.
    JimmyG. - Even though we had never met it felt like I was meeting up with an old friend. You have very strong technique, it's easy to see why you have a level 3 certification.
    2knees - you are nice. I love your old school bang em out, balls to the wall bump style. I enjoyed our conversation on the chair. You have alot of dedication, hope you make it to Whiteface.
    SOD - the boy can turn them for sure. Those where the first bumps we skied this season, he's even better with a little pratice. Yeah, I know I'm his father, but he really is good.
    HPD - was very sore, but happy the next day.

    (Jack the Ripper aka Son of Drifter) Switched username to match mine @ SKIADK. Nice vid. 2knees was putting on a clinic in the bumps. Greg I do believe you looked much better here than in the first vid I saw of you this year. Jimmy G was graceful even in defeat. Really enjoyed meeting and ripping with you guys. We'll have to do it again real soon.

    I don't know what you were looking at Jack. I haven't seen such tight form since the WC Bump comp at WF. 2knees ROCKS those piles old school style. What's not on the vid is a straightline run down ike were 2knees didn't waiver an inch off his line in the bumps.

    2knees did Mrs 2 knees catch you? I hope not.
