^your right. Skiing has changed so much in the last few years. Even in the last six years, people went from doing mostly inverts and 360s and 720s without grabs, and hardly any rails to doing cork 810 tails to rail, 360 switch ups, smooth switch cork 10's. Everything. It will be exciting to see where the sport progresses in the next 5 years.

It means you gotta pop the cork on some MD 20/20 and get sloppy before you frail around.

Since I got married ten years ago, I've laid off the alcohol. It seems I had a hard time keeping my panties on too. :wink:
