No doubt about it. The guy is a beast. But the terrain choices he's making are just insane. He was damn near taken out by a HUGE avy last season. I thought he might dial it back a notch after that.
He's an absolutely amazing rider and definitely knows what he's doing, but damn he's taking some huge risks. I hope they continue to pay off for him because it's fun as hell to watch and he's taking big mountain riding to levels that haven't even been contemplated before. Jones is still a monster, but even he's starting to dial it back a little these days. He's getting some age on him and has a family to think about now.
Xavier is just on another level right now. No shame in my game saying that my snowboarding days would be over if I ever attempted that shit - and very possible my walking and/or breathing days.
