“Skiing for me is a little bit like being an artist, ya know, you sorta paint the mountain…”
Ok, there is some sick footage in here; mostly Mike Wilson going berzerk and claiming he doesn’t care if he dies as long as he’s having fun dying. BUT, this whole “Gaze into the soul of a true die-hard skier thing” gives me dry heaves.
How many times are they gonna stuff it down our throats that these guys are hardcore, soulful, mystic, enchanted SKI SHAMANS?
Ski Channel, we are here to tell you that not only is it getting old, but it’s been old. We know how cool and soulful your skiers are; we got it. Now we just wanna see ‘em rip, have fun and enjoy the mountain and make us say ‘Goddammit! That was SICK!”
