    Two ski tricks are so much harder! Congratulations Brandon, that's awesome.

    I was making it hit and miss when that pic was taken. I wrecked a few skis and almost broke my ankle so I stopped working on it. I was actually on a crappy pair of ski school low end trick skis when I took that picture. That trick ruins skis faster than any other trick ever.

    When we were running tournaments in the mid to late 1970s, Pete Knapp from CT had a
    2-ski flip at the end of his run. Think it was a front flip, but not sure. Would sometimes
    have to save a fall by doing a drag and roll-up.

    Very cool. I wouldn't have the guts to try it. I love the laughter of the woman videoing.

    I haven't seen it in close to 40 years. Like I said in another thread the crowd went wild and we heard it easily on the slalom lake. Pretty cool!

    ... and yes @Horton I've noticed your profile picture.

    Brandon is a beast, skis into 38, boots 190+ off the jump and tricks into the 1600 with 2 passes. Good ole Minnesotans, ski 6 months a year and still get the job done.
