    Skiing Like I Like It - a video thread

    Thought I'd start a thread with videos of skiing done to my taste: Aesthetic lines skied fast.

    The first one is pretty much exactly how I want to ski.

    It's not that I can't ski big, fast lines like that, it's that I have kids. And I'm a pussy. ;-)

    I told my wife that after the kids leave the nest we're moving to Europe so I can take up speed-flying. Actually, I said we're moving to Europe to go to culinary school, she just doesn't know about me and the speed-flying thing yet.

    Anyway, we need some POV from the Southern Alps there, homie. Got any Cragie? Temple? Olympus? Even TC would help wet the palette.

    The casualness of Baker Boyd gets my attention more than most. You have to follow him though to see his stories that disappear to really get his consistency day after day.

    Like Tof and Bernie posted above, I like seeing locals ski their home range over and over again, showing how unique and cool their place is on top of their unique style.

    Haha

    Iíve tried similar trick with Ms Island Bay, but she knows me too well after 22 years.

    Iíll see if I can get a few recent videos. Just on my way home from Craigieburn, and we got some good stuff done.

    I'll always appreciate ShitFuck...

    and I'll also always appreciate Fabian... with perhaps the greatest comp line of all time...



    It's 2023 and that's still the greatest comp line of all time. And that was a qualifier.

    Also, that's reason #1 why I would never try to work my way up the qualifiers onto the FWT via Europe. Nope. Europe is a different breed. That's just one dude. They're all that good.

    Love that line. Watch it all the time as itís just so mind boggling good. Also the venue is better than a lot of venues on the fwt.

    It's an unbelievable run. Forgot how good it was.

    Fast forward to 2023 and Fabian and struggling to walk/ski again after falling out of the sky paragliding:

    This is pretty much as good as it gets, I reckon.

    Beautiful line in a pristine environment, and completely relatable. Time to visit the Norwegian part of the family.
