I'm sure this will turn into an angry flame war but I'm honestly curious what people think. Here are the rules:

1. You can't nominate yourself
2. Video evidence of said skier is preferred.
3. Disagreements will be settled with a best of 7 ski off

I've skied with a LOT of great people so this isn't a slight on anyone. In no particular order,

Savemeasammy
Puck It
Deadheadskier
Huck_it_baby

I've only met one snowboarder so Cannonball wins that by default

I'm going to have to go with Tuna. However, the only way to settle this question for sure is an official AZ ski-off!!

You guys are clueless...180 will kick all of your asses.

Yep, I've seen the guy ski in person along with his videos. Plain and simple... the guy can rip. Another guy who use to post and former competitor, B-Sted one of the best mogul skier I've seen in person. Blanton posted some of his vids as well... another guy who can bring it.

Powbmps skied a line in Sunnapee's sunbowl section that was unbelievable and the guy has awesome air.

Never seen him. Video evidence?

Haha.... go look up the old post in trip reports.

I don't doubt this for a second. Even so, this thrown-under-the-bus skier would still like to make some turns with him!

This is just hearsay, but I believe 180 reached the pinnacle of competitive mogul skiing when he took first place at the Ski Sundown Gunbarrel Mogul Challenge a couple years ago.

gpetrics, by a long shot. I've skied with him in person a few times. Only person who is basically a pro level freeskier.

Btw, my younger brother was a semi-pro snowboarder, like top 20 in the country in halfpipe at his peak a while back. There are experts, and then there are pros - whole different ballgame.

I would agree with this but powbmps would be right there too. Doesn't post much but moguler6 is incredible. FrankM would be another

I've skied and partied with Frank a good bit over the years, been to his ski house, and actually showed him one of my very technical stashes during a pow day last year. Solid all around skier but mogul focused. His bro won the BMMC previous year. They ski with the Hammer (meatheads) all the time. Really a good guy and a minor Killington celebrity. His crew is different than mine and is very mogul oriented, so they tend to do their own thing, but we all get along pretty well at K-town.
