    No they did--they're there and we're here.
    (FWIW Heitz threw in a couple of little speed checks near the top; I don't think Rahlves did.)

    I'd have to give the nod to Rahlves, due to balls, clean line, and mass alone.

    Heitz v. Rahlves

    Too many turns. I like how rahlves is described as “former alpine skier.”

    Interesting to see Heitz using Cast with STH2s and Rahlves Shifts.

    I didn't know heitz is related to the great and mighty GSA. No wonder he skis that well.
    It's a war of the mind and we're armed to the teeth.

    I wish I was so good that people called me and said: hey, we need you in Zermatt!

    RedBull is trash, but damn their channel is great (on Firestick). I regularly waste hours switching btwn bike videos and ski videos. This past weekend alone, I watched this, Drop Everything, and some Brandon Semenuk video. I've watched "Days of My Youth" and "The Way I see it" about 50x. That doesn't even count the skate videos, motocross videos, and MotoGP movies I've watched. Oddly, I don't think I've ever seen a snowboard video <shrug>.
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    No thanks. I'll stick with porn. - Benny

    RedBull TV is definitely a contender for the best thing on the Internet. Literally thousands of hours of free Grade-A action sports content. They recently added "ads," but they're short non-obnoxious ads for other cool shit on RedBull TV.

    That was insane. The most impressive gate running I have ever seen.

    When Rahlves was on the WC circuit he spent his breaks free skiing around Tahoe (mostly Sugar Bowl I think). A free skier at heart.

    But he’s still an “alpine skier”.

    Maybe he is switching to tele :P

    Ojectively, Rahlves is trying to pinch line like I would, and Heitz's line probably is the one the that carries the speed.

    Thoroughly enjoyed that.
    Move upside and let the man go through...

    Just watched this. Been a while since screaming "FUCK YEAH" first thing in the morning.

    Yes!

    Love this. Those guys are so solid. I love their communication about myriad mountain things.

    Rhalves is the man. His line was superior IMO, what a great skier. Wonder if Heitz had to stay out of his track else be bucked... looked like both dudes had a couple wobbles... Rhalves mentioned the speed getting real in the last three turns and you can see him wobble and react, but fucking saves it in the clutch. Haha! So strong.

    Entertaining video, but Rahlves was doing some selling. On a couple of inches of perfect pow, that was basically funsies for him.

    For adrenalin and carnage he created the short lived "Rahlves Banzai Tour." Not to mention that he's won the Hahnenkamm.
