Why are skiers always so seething about snowboarders? None of the people I ever went snowboarding with ever had any animosity towards skiers and on the occasion I hear a boarder say anything about skiing it would be just mild banter about skiing being too easy or for casuals etc. On the other hand it seems a shitload of skiers from highly skilled to middle aged woman on the bunny slope has some irrational hate and thinks having snowboarders around somehow takes away from their experience as a skier, I've heard them complain that borders don't respect rules, are impolite, cut them off but almost never see whatever it is they're complaining about.
What gives?
>>
>>18067
boomer thing. My dad started skiing before it was a thing and hates them. They're basically treated like skateboarders, since a lot of rich people ski cause they hate being around poor people. There's also the idea that they kill the pow more.

Some mountains, they ride like shit but that's very specific.

Cuz you guys fuck up the pists by plowing face first down every fucking slope you can't deal with (which is basically every single one above red). And even if you know how to get down, you still have to displace so much snow to get anywhere it gets fucked up anyway

35 year old boomer here. I grew up in Aspen and snowboarding was banned when I learned to ski. When I eventually went to other mountains I quickly saw why they were banned: they were savages.... the unwashed masses, if you will. They messed up the snow, were generally out of control, and had bad hygiene.

I don't mind them really because i only ski at the crack of dawn and then come back by the time those bums wake up, but you could for sure see the contrast. It is nicer to be on a mountain without them plowing their way down the hill.
>>
>>18067
Because skiers are pretentious faggots who think the mountain is “theirs” and that snowboarders are “bums” despite paying the same ticket price/pass price as they do to ride said mountain.

Ironically, the same retard skiers are the ones I find most often plowing into people, taking up the entire slope with big, slow turns, and falling all over the place like morons because they only go twice a year with their dipshit family of four but somehow believe they’re all “intermediate to advanced” skiers.

The only non-faggot skiers are the actually-good ones. They at least recognize how many dumb-fuck weekend warrior Jerrys are in their sport.

Because I had to go back to Switzerland and I couldnt take my equipment with me, moreover the border to Austria was closed because of the Covid hoax lol. Skiing in Switzerland is too expensive and I am not gonna spend two hours in an overpopulated bus driving back and forth to the resort so I missed most of the season unfortunately.
Sucks because this is the first time I payed for it, when I was employed at the lifts I could go for free.

Happily nothing serious and we could go home after a few shoutings.

I don't hate snowboarders but I dislike their shitty rider culture. In my cuntree, they all look like "weed lmao" guys with no control over their abilities who risk the lives of others. The kind of people who would go off slope of steep gradients without avalanche victim detector (nor further knowledge of avalanche risk), go through natural reserves, smoke and get drunk while skiing, endanger families on the slopes, etc. I hate these people and it just happens that most of them are snowboarders.

Same. bought an Epic pass didn't go once. Not worth dealing with corona bullshit.

Was skiing at jackson hole down through trees. get hit on head by branch. Wipe out ski get stuck on a trunk. end up hanging upside down on a very steep hill. when I unhook my binding I slide way down the hill and spend 20mins getting my shit back. My frens make fun of me every time we go.

Skiing is a white mans sport, I always laugh out loud when I see some nigglet or muttshit trying to keep balance on the baby slope and fail before I never see them again.
Skateboarding is a Jewish invention to enable niggers to bring their hiphop, streetwear and drugs on the slope and subsequently take yet another tradition of the whites, especially Germans. Same thing that happened to boxing, basketball and soccer.
If you are a skateboarder you are either a communist or a nigger, there is no in between.

I only hate it when beginner boarders plow down runs that are way too difficult for them. A beginner skier does much less damage.

I don't really get the hate on boarders who actually know what they're doing though. I think it's just this thing where people feel like they need to pick sides.

It's always the same old bullshit arguments too.
>Snowboarding is harder to pick up but skiing is harder to master.
>>
>>25092
I always hear the beginner argument, but my theory is it's actually the average rider vs skiier - learning to carve a snowboard is way harder than carving on skis, so your average boarder makes bullshit skid-turns down anything steeper than a cat track. Just watch any boarder from the chair next time you're up and compare them to someone like Knapton https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EuHon78jjKw

>get to know her as she looks me over with a nice smile
>she's coy yet seems interested
>eventually we wait for younger guy, he acts pissed over getting separated
>the best part was on the way back home, when it was his turn to drive, I got to sit next to her
>he glared as I sat down
>let's just say she accidentally allowed herself to slide into me and gave the occasional glance from time to time
Women are natural drama machines, aren't they? I just wanted to shred with some boardbros... I never asked for this, but I must say it had a lot of fun.
>>
>>25099
Carving with any gear is near impossible in beginner snowboarder created conditions.
It makes perfect sense to discourage them from the harder runs.
They'd learn more doing one green run practicing good, Knapton-like form than from a million double black diamond runs with scrapey form,

>>
>>25296
Weirdly counter-intuitive but try practicing your entry and exit into carves on mellower slopes. Without the momentum and speed helping you de-camber the board your pressure and edge control matters so much more. I found a lot of improvement when I started doing two things, on long flats instead of resigning to just un-strapping and skating, trying to see JUST how far I could get flat base, the balance to flat base for a long time will help with your pressure and posture. Second, are what are maybe "butters" or flat land spins? Basically initiate a turn sharply to spin and control your edges so you can smoothly 360 on flat ground, your goal is to complete the spin faster and with less deviation from your original line of movement, again oddly harder on mellow slopes vs steeper slopes.
>>
>>26134
I'm a snowboarder, it's generally new snowboarders who have shitty instructors that don't teach them how to skate/ride one footed or ride flat base at all.

So they start riding off of the lift and panic from not being comfortable riding flat base, try to get an edge in and can't because they don't know how to with only one foot in the bindings, and fall.

dude have you FUCKING SEEN the retards on Snow Bikes? Sure at first it was cool to see someone with experience on Skis/Boards and Downhill BMX rip it up on one.

You are a boomer though, I guess you ignore the skiers who just pizza down the whole fucking mountain, snow plowing down to the base, then turning to stop in the middle of the run to look for what ever progeny they littered the hill with?

How can you slowly support his elbow if the dude was already leaning on you? Furthermore, why did you allow a stranger to lean on you for so long without saying something?

All kinds of fucked up.

all of the snowboard hate is a cope for ur shitty ass ski boots
>>
>>27362
Man I don't know if I'm just used to it or what, but I don't even notice my boots now. Whenever I get a new pair though, that shit sucks. I was nearly brought to tears the first time I wore my current boots.
Do snowboard boots transfer energy through the bindings/board really well? The reason ski boots are so tight and rigid is so there's minimal loss between input (your legs initiating turns) and output (the skis actually moving). I have to imagine for snowboards you'd want front/rear rigidity but side to side doesn't matter.
>>
>>27437
There are varying degrees of stiffness in Snowboard boots. Generally Snowboard boots are either very soft, for riding in the park where you want to be able to flex on the board, or pretty stiff for carving and all mountain riding. I ride the stiff boots in my size and with the Boas done up they are maybe 80% as stiff as my ski boots.

What do you say about those of us who splitboard? Are we 1 or 2 plankers? Are we cheating by using snowmobiles to follow the snow dumps?

Don't worry we talk shit about all you lift line cucks.

>How can you slowly support his elbow if the dude was already leaning on you?
Years of riding on packed London trains where you can't always reach a handle I guess. You quickly learn that if someone is trying to push you with their elbow/bag, it is easier to push them back if you have a lower centre of mass. I used to do this all the time on the tube. Someone starts pushing you elbow to elbow, then you kinda lower your stance a few cm, now your elbow is below theirs and as a result is resting ontop of yours. People don't notice this change because as far as they are concerned they are still leaning with the same amount of effort, just part of that is now downward as well as horizontal. Then you wait for the train to go round a corner or something and suddenly remove the vertical support you were giving them and they fall over, you can also add to the vertical support you're giving them which can make them become unbalanced in the opposite direction. Hopefully the diagram helps.

>Furthermore, why did you allow a stranger to lean on you for so long without saying something?
It was my first time in Verbier and I wanted to confirm whether or not the guy was intentionally being a prick as opposed to just being some strange cultural shit they do. Plus his kids seemed cool so I didn't want to get into some sort of altercation with their dad in front of them. It is a strange thing to let the guy lean on my elbow for a good minute or 2 but I wanted to see if he'd realise and apologise, he didn't, so I played a little trick on him.

I agree. It just doesn't feel the same as it did 5-10 years ago. It feels all corporatized now and the small resorts are quickly disappearing, which is forcing more people into the remaining resorts. 10 years ago I could almost ride straight onto the most populated lift during spring break at my home resort, but now I have to wait at least 5 minutes at the most secluded lift on a weekday. It also feels like most people only ski/board so they can get pictures and video for their social media. That might just be cause I'm a Zoomer but I really just hate it all idk why

I live in a ski town and this is very true. I'm seeing less people actually into the sports and culture and more tourist retards who come here not knowing anything so they can get photos and drink and maybe go down a few greens.
That being said I and a lot of the folks I know around here are trying to keep the culture alive with oldskool edits and hard shredding
I really hope that my children can enjoy snowsports in a meaningful way in the future and that it doesn't just die off

Don't know about the rest of the world but I know that Squaw and Mammoth are usually open til July 4th, Mt. Bachelor usually stays open until memorial day weekend and A-Basin is similar. Some resorts like Timberline will keep small parts of the mountain like a terrain park or something open for as long as they can retain snow as well.

Dunno about long seasons. If you wanna skii alot, I think you have to travel

Come to California, Squaw and Mammoth should be open for another month and a half at least. Although, it’s been a dry year in general on this side of the Rockies. Resorts have half the snow they usually do at this time of the year.

Maybe Alta in Utah?
