If you can’t ski everything well without poles you are not as good as you think.I don't get it either. I guess I can see skiing groomers without poles, but certainly not bumps / trees.

Spent a bit of time watching the Carinthia Classic at Mount Snow today (women's and men's ski and snowboard divisions) and what those athletes threw down during that rail jam was IMPRESSIVE!Park skiing doesn't bother me and every now and then I'll hit a few boxes or small jumps. Park skiers occasionally do. I don't think it's a coincidence that the most continually trash-littered liftlines are on major park lifts.
Yeah wtf happened to all of thoseI miss the half pipes. those were fun.
Ski areas decided that the $$ to build and maintain a pipe, wasn't worth the value a small percentage of their customers got from itYeah wtf happened to all of those
Ya ya, my man.Pole plants are a critical component of proper bump skiing technique. I'd argue more so than any other discipline in the sport. Even Johnny Mosely would not ski bumps even close to as well without poles
Yeah wtf happened to all of those
Yeah and they're terrible skiers too lol.I don’t care if parks exist or not.
What I find strange is people outside of parks skiing without poles. I have seen a lot lately and they don’t seem to be park skiers.
The "jumps" and landings are built to make the tricks easier than they appear. Hit the right speed, spin and there it is. I agree with the complaint guy. Skiing is about getting down a challenging mountain with style. If it looks like a wounded duck ....it's interesting because in my opinion the pinnacle of the sport is the freeride world tour and all those guys are backflipping and sending huge 360's etc. clearly they have spent some time sessioning the park.
I think if you can't flow a bit in the park you aren't an all round skier or rider.
it’s not a real letter, it’s a parodyI agree with the complaint guy.
I stand with him, and I'm sticking with him.it’s not a real letter, it’s a parody
