Things the Ski Media is too Jaded to care about
By The Jaded Local1
Things have reached the point where someone could stick a 375-foot jump on a pair of 20-plus year old skis and not one professional Ski Journalist notices. How do I know this? Because that’s exactly what a guy from Bozeman named Rolf Wilson did in February 2011. Apparently, all the Ski Journalists were too busy re-tweeting press releases from energy drink companies on their iBerries to care. Or maybe the snow was really good that week.
Either way, if an extra rotation or the “drop” of yet another movie is worth burning a trillion electrons in re-tweets and Facebook posts, I would be severely remiss in my duties if I didn’t try to shove this story into the conversation: Wilson broke his own world alpine-binding’d distance record off the 90-meter nordic jump at Howelsen Hill, flying 375 feet during Steamboat’s Pro Alpine Flying Championships (formerly known as Gelande Jumpin’2) on Feb. 11.
