    2020 Sick Bird - How about Hank Bilous and the Japan transfer air? So cool. Then if you combine the air he sent next to the canyon gap in Fieberbrunn with the Japan transfer air he might take it over Yu. That was fun going back and watching the highlights, I'd forgotten about his run at Fieberbrunn. That....was......awesome!!!

    Yeah, Hank’s ability to look totally flung cat messed-up and fighting for balance in the air and just casually suck it all back together for a tidy stomped landing is just mind blowing to me. That’s somebody with a different kind of wiring and a crazy skill set for sure.

    I don't think it is as serious as what he was doing before. I would not call it trivial in general, but it is trivial in comparison to that crazy straightline. I would call it far less serious than what he was doing before. So trivial in comparison to that straightline. What he did up above made that gap seem trivial in comparison. The commentators were blown away by what he did up top and seemed bummed when he crashed. I echo their sentiments. Get over yourself.

    I respect Navarro for not resting on his laurels so to speak, he probably could have taken it easy the rest of the run. In some sense I wish he had. That upper section was just so sick, it impressed me more than anything else anyone did. It's a shame he didn't at least get closer to the podium after that. I like Ross Tester's run, I like what Reine did particularly, but I have re-watched what Navarro did more than any of the other runs. It was the moment of the comp, at least for me. It's a shame he couldn't finish the rest of his line clean. In fact, that was the coolest thing I have seen on the FWT this year. Not a scientific opinion, just calling it as I see it.

    I'm both excited and scared to see what Navarro is going to do on the bec.

    That run actually vaguely reminded me of the feeling I got watching the 2000 Gravity Games with Guerlain Chicherit. That line, I think it's now called Frenchie's at Mammoth, was simply far and away crazier than anything anyone else did at that comp. I was actually looking up at that area on Sunday and thinking 'how the fuck did Guerlain see a line there?' He saw a line the others simply did not see. And that comp had some great names skiing very well. When I watched Guerlain I couldn't believe just how different his view of the mountain was. I think McConkey won that contest, but I will always remember what Chicherit did that day.

    I can't seem to quickly find a video of Chcherit's line. I'm sure it is somewhere on this site. Watching Navarro made me feel like that.

    Anyone else going to watch? We're on our way down there now. Any idea on which day for the comp? Wife is gonna take a day off from skiing one of the days and she doesn't one to skip the wrong day (can't watch it).

    Itís not difficult. Everyone watches it from Col des Gentianes where they also put up a big screen so you can watch the replays up close. Question is whether they are allowed to do it this year with COVID regs. There is already a load of filming gear up there but no info on watching regs.

    How's the snowpack after this most recent storm? Will it still look that way after control work? Looks absolutely stacked.
    I ski 135 degree chutes switch to the road.

    seemed a bit staged and markety to have them all there in their bibs for the photo face check. And they seemed freezing for the surfing venue

    Rooting for anyone except Mr. Pollard would be unconscionable for me. Love his style.
