What myth? And why would anyone want to kill him anyway?

Good job. Quite correct. It's also relative. The same MPH might be
bat**** crazy for one and boring, phone in one hand, drink in the
other speed.

Not a tree, but I've got a hockey stick that wants the job.

Bob, Bob. You have to stop drinking while driving. Most people don't
have a drink in their hand, but we all know about you.

Most of time, "Black Diamond Speed" is pretty slow or the last thing is
to be on the edge of out of control, it is always an exercise if one's
technique is down pat, or find out if the slope and snow conditions has
found faults in one's mechanics.


I agree with your statement about "BDS" being "slow". I think that
what I think of "BD" it's really what is labeled double BD or Red. So
even slower. But the rest of my comment was an expansion on the topic
not a rebuttal.

I know you were not trying to rebut. *I was just thinking out loud if
there is *a the finesse of speed while skiing, like downhill racing or

sloppy brute speed.


I'd say that there is. The weekend warrior, ala you know who, leans
back, arms out, a millimetre from explosion. The more brute force they
try to use, the less the control. And what's weird to me is that their
actual speed is probably only in the low 30's.

An accomplished skier. Say......on a 207 GS ski. One that can roll
edge to edge, ride flat skis confidently, but also a millimetre from
disaster, just not as likely to get there, probably reaches speeds
somewhere in the 50's. It's the finesse. Letting the skis do their
work and having control over it.

It’s cut down. We found it today and took a few photos. It’s off the Orion run to the right. There are a few rocks on a stump there now.
