I've skied 15 and 22 for 10 years now. First made the course back in 2004, first made 34mph in 2009, and since then I've been skiing 34 (or 36 if I'm going to a tournament or two, one more year of that). In the past couple seasons I ski 15 and 22 all year, then start taking cracks at 28 near the end of the season and never quite get it since it feels so fundamentally different (remember my "what's the deal with 28" thread? Great stuff in that one). This morning I did my whole set at -28, 32mph and it felt pretty good. Last fall I ran it a couple times. How stupid is it to just say this is a -28 season at any speed? After all, 10 years at 15 and 22 have only garnered incremental gains. 28 makes mistakes show up immediately. I may run less balls but I'll at least know I did something wrong whereas running the easier passes allows me to run tons of balls even with glaring mistakes. Thoughts?
Should I forget about 15 and 22 this year? How stupid is this idea? 57 votes
This is stupid, stick with the 10 year program
Yellow or nothing in 2014
