There are some show skiers from the USA over in China right now and depending on who does the estimates, they are getting between 40,000 & 50,000+ spectators for practices. Here’s a picture of the crowd.
I the show skiing world, we’ve seen barefooters pull front flips, but in the video below we have a guy doing a helicopter pulling a front flip… very nice.
I just finished posting Mad-City’s National Recap over on the Mad-City website. Once again, it features a highlight clip. Here’s the link. If you don’t want to read the whole recap and just want to see the video, here it is…
One thing you just don’t see very much is water skiing at night. It’s just not allowed in most places. Tommy Bartlett’s in the Dells would do night ski shows, but in the heart of summer, it just doesn’t get very dark until very late, so it usally wasn’t done in the full dark very often.
I’ve just posted Mad-City State Highlight Clip online. You have a couple options to view it…
- First option is to go to the team’s website where there is a state recap online, with a brief recap of the whole weekend, including the video. Here’s the link for that.
- Next option to start searching YouTube, but that isn’t always easy to find what you want.
- Third option, is to just stay right here, because I’ve posted the video below.
Over at BarefootCentral.com, one of the many minions Chuck has out reporting on events for him sent in a pretty good article about the Wisconsin State Show Ski Tournament. The article, written by Michael Frank of the Badgerland Ski Team, has lots of pictures from a lot of the shows and a good explanation of what show skiing is and how it’s scored. Go check it out.
