i like the skicross, but i like boards better... i think the main reasons are that i now solely snowboard, and its more devastating to have a slip up on a board. on skiis, you get cut off or have an issue, you can get your balance back, lift a foot, whatever, and hardly lose speed. on a board, you have to get the edge down and then the speed is lost. the actual crashes are more serious usually on skiis, but thats to be expected.
while we're talking about it... anyone else think the skiers either shouldn't be allowed poles, or should at least have smaller ones? man.. they start rolling up those windows and they suddenly have a 12 foot wingspan with pointy things at the end.
sarcasm... yeah... like THAT will ever catch on...
