Turns out the skiing out east can get pretty gnarly if you know where to look!

Some skiers are smoother than others. Freestyle phenom Cody Cirillo is on the higher end of that smooth spectrum. For. Sure. His spins look so insanely effortless and watching him ski just leaves me feeling excited about the sport. How 'bout you?
