    Why is it, every time you get to the top.
    You have to poop.

    Itís only a descent if it occurs in the descent region of France, otherwise itís just sparkling skiing.

    Alright, I was going to harass you for the nťvť since it came up in the last couple episodes but it looks like it's already taken care of. There are enough words I can't pronounce in Engrish that I think I can let that one slide

    I mean that entirely unironically. It's like if Joe Satriani did the soundtrack to a Rocky training montage. I legit had that type of stuff on my skiing mixtape in the early nineties.

    That line looked scary as hell from the bottom and ridiculously fun while you were on it.

    Great episode. Hanging out with the locals, waiting for conditions, no helicopters, and getting a classic line in perfect conditions.

    Awesome!

    I remember reading about Doug Ward and that line in the late 90ís or 2000.

    Did a group ski that same line the day before?

    I would like to see some late 70s heavy metal music covers worked into the mix. Possibly done on a hammer dulcimer or banjo.

    Oar you could pull out all the stops and use bag pipes.

    And pocket bacon!

    Yeah a day or two before...not quite sure though as we drove back to the coast between when we shot with Doug and skied the line.

    The FIFTY

    I like how the old dude with the experience uses normal collapsible poles, and uses the straps on the safe uphill.Click image for larger version.

    I could never give up the option of the cane position shown in the photo. resting the heel of my palm lightly on top of the downhill pole during mellow skin traverses or bearing down on top of both poles on steep sections of track. That extra grip option is essential, both for efficiency and variety/rest/relief. I couldnít grip the pole the same way all day. I imagine some kind of wrist RSI after a few years of thousands upon thousands of repetitions.
