For those of you have your own skis/snowboards, you are undoubtedly aware of the rapid progression and change in the design of skis. Our parent's skis were nothing more than pieces of wood strapped to their feet with some wax and a bit of camber for those hop turns. Now, however, we have elliptical side cuts, multi-turn-radii side-cuts, rocker, rocker/camber/rocker, camber, rocker/camber, early taper, early-rise rocker, twin tips, etc... the list goes on indefinitely! The point is this, if this guy can ski some of the hardest terrain at Bridger Bowl on those ancient chop-sticks nobody can make the excuse that they don't have the proper equipment! The skis don't make the skier. On the other hand, with that awesome of an outfit you're automatically obligated to kick ass on the mountain.
