It's more than I use here. I'm just heading it off at the pass so to speak. I usually ignore it too.

Dude, we can tell who rides here and who doesn't. Attitude and how people talk is how it can show how you ride. I've no doubt that raiyn rides quite a bit.

Nah, talk is cheap. On the internet we are all heroes. I have had the pleasure to ski with a large group of skiers that got together (in Snowbird, Utah) via the internet. What an eye opener. Not everyone was as fantastic a skier as they seemed to be on the internet.

There is definately a difference between knowledge and skill. I ride a lot and some technical stuff...but I am not a great rider. I don't usually trust how a person rides till I see them

It also depends on where you come from. Most riders come here, may be awesome at home but get creamed. Dhillers from cali come here and find whislter easy but still find the shore difficult. Shore riders tend to be the most technical riders around but sometimes not the fastest ( dh race speed) so depending on the course may not seem that good. Pretty funny actually

Nope not home turf at all actually. Different skill levels. You could bring a cali rider up here and he is fine. Get a rider from Texas (this happened to me) and 'usually' they will not be up to par. They thought they were but when decending a few thousand feet...it takes its toll and really seperate riders.

When they make those and don't think about thermal expansion, the side points higher up in the air, so if you're riding on the sidewalk, you can go flying pretty far
