    Im rooting for Skiboss. Ill always root for Skiboss. Im also now a Yuuge Sasaki fan. Wish his youtube channel had english subtitles. I hope the ski women meet or exceed that super high standard they have now set, its better to watch than mens snowboarding. they need to remove womens snowboard ASAP and give those slots to the ski womens field.

    I think we can all agree that Yuuge needs to be his new nickname, right? It certainly can't hurt with the ladies...

    I ate at his food truck and had no idea he was such a badass. Good food.

    One thing to mention is that the area between White Wall and Ozone which was permanent closure , the area T hall went, now does not have closed signs just caution _" big assed cornice" so you can ski it if you want. I wouldn't think that would be an oversight.

    Also, the idea behind tricking on really big cliffs is that if you start a rotation your body will retain the rotational momentum throughout the freefall. On really big drops without rotating your body wants to revert backwards more the bigger the drop.
    that line was totally SICK! whatever with tricks> the trick there was getting down alive

I like that there's a mix of skiers and styles, and I like that sometimes a run with tricks wins and sometimes a particularly nutty but more traditional line wins it. If it turns into a comp of just flips and spins then it gets boring and loses the essence of what is.
    IMO, there is less danger for an expert flipping tricks ,than a big line through gnarly terrain.

    You cant catch a snag while airborne...; and, the flippers are not noobs... they can perform flips in their sleep.

    You know it's a crazy air when you're looking for the landing spot and then realize he's going over the whole damn thing. Wow!

    Truth
    Same zone. Bollywood, or Freestyle Alaska as they called it (cringe). He crossed his track at one point and that was it.

    His line this year was in a really cool zone but his lack of basic skiing ability meant he did not do a whole lot with it. Would have liked to see Turdell or one of the legit players on tour attack that zone.
