Translation help needed (Seth's interview)...
Here is the one of the lame questions, which Seth were asked:
What do you like most: mad jumps or speed?
And here is his answer:
I prefer powder, and mad speed and jumps. Flying through the air is the best feeling when you know you are going to land in some deep powder. Going fast for me feels best in powder since you can stop very quickly when you need to.
So, my question is: what does last sentence mean, about powder and speed?
At first I thought like he prefers machin the powder than gowing slow through it because the high speed surface floating gives you more chances for skidding, which is almost impossible when you're going slow and your skis are under the snow - I felt this high-speed powder skidding ability once started to use fat ride.
But then editor asked me if I'm sure that Seth meant it. - Maybe, he said, Seth meant, that he prefers going fast through powder than through crud or grooms cause it is easier to stop in deep soft snow, especially when you ate shit.
Now I'm confused, tell me, what do YOU think about it?oh shit here comes the ground!

I think your editor is right. Sounds to me like seth was trying to say that it's fun to be able to be cruisin through the deep stuff really fast because you know when you need to scrub speed it's really easy in the deep as opposed to crud etc.

Not sure what mister Black would say about this, but this is what it feels/looks like to me(granted the pitch show does not appear to be that steep)... and what a wonderful feeling it is to scrub a ton of speed in the pow, creating your own wave of snow to come crashing down on you
