Writing on skiing

I have many ideas about skiing that I would like to put out for others to read and respond to. Action sports generally are held on a pedestal by their very own cultures. This is especially true within Internet communities. Countless times I have seen videos with aspects potentially worthy of criticism only to read below a surplus of generic comments that really don't get to the point of what people like or dislike about the piece. This is not a matter of negative or positive feedback, but what I think is the result of a sport adopting a umbrella-like mindset. Conveying that anyone skiing shouldn't be is bad, however action sports are inherently art. Nobody skis the same and I like it when people have input on other peoples game that goes beyond good or bad. No one has to listen either. It's win-win.
