you all have legitimate points and perfectly valid responses.
last season i rode mostly at heavenly (because i lived/worked there).
the people i ride with never judge me, it's more about the vibes i get from some of the people i interact with on main runs, lifts, and in lodges. i'm very much aware that when we're off in the trees, or it's a good powder day, people generally cease to give a shit about such trivial things (myself included).
... i don't know, i guess i'm just bitching and expressing self conscious-paranoia and buried feelings of inferiority. when i initially posted this thread i thought i was actually contributing some kind of insight.
carry on, folks.
Now now monkey brow......
a thread that has this many posts is definitely a contribution.....even if it is kinda silly....hold your head up high and kick those who pass judgment in the knee......
