    Pretty awesome video of the guy heading down the slopes of Val Blanc, France. It’s been well over 10 years since I last skied. I have a feeling it be an arm flailing disaster if I went now.

    @woo545 sweet video! @bambam I plan on buying new boots and bindings this season. We just got 2 feet of fresh pow! I am a bit apprehensive because I have not been up since I cracked my heal and blew out all the tenants in both my feet. I used to be a back country guy, bombing chutes and pillow tops. Or a terrain park day with my favorite lofty, backside 180’s and just started getting good at sticking backside 360’s. I practically lived on the slopes and had an unlimited pass for the better part of a decade, plus went to a new resort out of town as often as possible. I am sad that part of my life has been on hold for so long but hope to get my daughters up so we can start a new venture. My wife used to teach skiing and I grew up on sticks but I switched to snowboarding in high school. MAN I MISS IT SOOOOO MUCH! Thanks again for sharing this awesome vid woo ;-)

    Amazing video, I really liked the bald eagle in the shot @ 2:33 into the video. More skills in his little finger then I have in my whole body. I grew up in warm weather and never had the desire to snow ski. Others make it look so easy but I know its not. Thanks @woo545 for the share.

    I used to do stuff like that, but I had a ton of surgeries and had to stop. It’s been really hard because that’s all I’ve done most my life. but after 23 surgeries, I had to retire… I’m not gonna lie, it’s been hard trying to be normal. been riding over a 100 days a year most my life, now nothing… :poundinghead:
    So, I understand being jealous of this kid.

    @theredrocket – I lived in Boulder Colorado when i was young and my Dad took me to all the killer resorts to ski , i have the most killer memories of Pops driving us to the places and getting there at dark:30 in the morning so we could be one of the first folks there when the lift opened , man did we see our share of fresh powder.A couple of my favorites where Breckenridge and Sugar mountain , those places were sick back then. We were pretty good skiers as i remember and we would kill the blue slopes even tried a few Black diamonds here and there. I still have my old set of Rossingnol Dave cook Skis! I miss snow skiing soo bad.
