    Don't miss Chapter 2 Skip to 7' 20" if you get tired of the pillows, but really it is a good build up to what is to come.

    Impressive lines, but the style of a gaper to me.

    Ky can rip in all phases of the sports, but he's got a mean pooping gorilla stance. I'd happily adopt this stance if it would let me ski as well as him, but it is not the most aesthetically pleasing style. That said, the film is a good one.

    I must be blind, but I can't see this stance, where in the movie did you notice it.

    I think his steep jump turns were a thing of ski mountaineering beauty. ,,

    Put up a vid of yourself ripping big lines so we can see how it is supposed to be done.

    I have zero issues with his style. That's the thing I love about skiing, we all have our own style.

    Great short story and footage
    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    His jumps turns look great. I'm not going to dwell on his style. I'm not qualified. Great vid.

    No criticism of his steep jump turns. They looked pretty solid and functional on very steep terrain. In the powder pillows segment however Kye was regularly over-rotating, windmilling his his arms to regain balance, and getting caught in the back seat. It's a wild bull riding style, which many people may appreciate, but I much prefer to ski (certainly not claiming to charge like Kye) and watch others ski with a more conventional composed style. Compare to skiers with a solid technical skiing background, such as Hoji or Max Hammer.

    Yeah, I get it. It did look weird in the pillows, kind of not turning his skis. I didn't pay much attention to that segment, kind of boring.

    Otoh, glad to see that he wss using jump turns in the couloir, because a lot of people say that jump turns are obsolete.

    I use them.

    16 minutes long and worth every minute IMO. That pitch in the middle segment was crazy steep.

    Calling bullshit on the "gaper style" comment. Watch Hoji ski pillow lines like that. He often over-rotates a bit too - on purpose - to control speed. I'd like to see anyone get through some of those without a little window rolling.

    Yeah, def wild bull, loosey goosey park skier style. Initiating turns way late and with his upper body. No doubt he's never been a racer, but still fun to watch and can charge. Just never really looks in control and on top of it (way different from Hoji, TahoeJ). But he's young and has plenty of time to grow.

    ^^ I didn't say his style was anything like Hoji's, just that some over-rotation in steep pillow lines is pretty common regardless of style.

    fuckin eh that was rad! absolutely phenomenal and for the haters compare kye's descents to Matty Richard and Johnny Foon and I think kye looks more composed and skis with more control and style. not saying that richard or Chilton are hacks, but it was apparent to me that kye is just slightly on a higher plane.

    The pillow segment was great and I thought it very fun to watch, he throws way more spins off pillows than say hoji or max hammer, maybe more like abma with his style. but whatever, they are all aesthetically pleasing to watch and anyone who says otherwise is a complete hater/douche. Plus that pov footage in the couloir is amazing, so fluid and smooth, kye skis that shit with precision.

    definitely one of the best free ski porns i've seen this year!

    This was a really good video. Being a bit of a ski snob for form and technique and reading the comments first, I thought I might not like it. Wrong, this is really good.

    I think plenty of the younger guys make kind of ugly turns having never used skinny skis growing up, but this is hardly the video to use to point that out. Kye is the full package from jumps to steeps. And this is very worth watching.

    Been a while since I have seen a pro callout on the board and thought it was funny. kootenayskier gets after it and proops to him for calling how he saw it.

    Another thing snowboarders taught us is that there are so many ways to style through snow and gravity.

    Kye definitely deserves first billing. Thought it was amazing.

    I dunno where you ski, or what sort of skiing you follow, but I have never heard that. And would never agree with it, jump turns shall live forever.

    Kye and Candide should do an edit together so TGR can really get down to business on critiquing their styles.
