Opinion: Does Downhill Have Nowhere Else to Go?
@Brightside: No, you can compare. Like Richard pointed out, one sport feeds the other. I am a better skier in part because I now see the mountain differently which is a direct result of biking & vice versa. Certainly the medium & mode are different, but there is definitely uphill. I backcountry ski, the climbs are far more difficult than anything I've ever done on a bike. Ski's are far more versatile than a bike, I can go up & down slopes that I or most people would never attempt on a bike, I don't need a trail or even clear terrain, I can pick or choose at will mostly where I want to go. If you have ever lost an edge on a steep, icey slope I can attest that it is not softer than stones & a hell of a lot scarier. On top of all that you have to be hyper aware while skiing as the white monster is lurking somewhere & will take the unwary, unlearned without discrimination. Highly developed equipment? Skiing has it in spades, like biking if you compared equipment from 25 years ago you would wonder how we ever made it down the mountain. The one thing I would disagree with Richard on is fluidity, I watched a video of Sam Hill going down a slope, it was poetry in motion. Both sports are awesome, both have differences of course but overall they are closer than they are different.

The Frozen Road - Video
So, it's Super Bowl Sunday, -18C & dumping snow & contemplating bike/no bike...Then I watch this. Huge respect, travelling alone in a mega harsh environment where simple mistakes get bad really fast. Kind of makes my mini dilemma seem trivial. Great film, honest thoughts & emotions, good job Ben.

Flat Out Freeride in Les Arcs, France – Video
Great video!! Not to detract too much from a great shoot but... Sad news but I guess as far as life goes, inevitable, sport video pioneer & legend Warren Miller passed away yesterday. He led the way & blazed a path in a genre that became acceptable & more mainstream as years went by. Todays video makers & producers continue to make incredible strides & push the boundaries in filming technique & content ( as seen in this video), Warren Miller led the way. RIP Warren, carve some sweet lines wherever you ended up.
