Not wanting to discredit a very impressive achievement, but the video showed an almost complete absence of linked ski turns. Is there a distinction between 'descending on skis' and 'skiing'?

There is indeed. For a good example, like that of Kilian, of descending on skis here's Pierre Tardivel - one of the best steep skiers of the early 2000s

For skiing watch "La Liste".

I wonder if his comments about other people not being there were intended for a certain Mr Honnold...?

Or maybe a prescient reference to his own Bob Graham run ;-)

Great film. Coming down that ice looked scary to say the least. As he said, no place for a slip.
