I agree that there are a handfull of a$$holes on the mountain both skier and snowboarder. On one side the much older elitist skier and on the other the steezy laugh at you when you fall down adolesent snowboarder. I don't normally generalize but in my experiences that is what I have come up with.
I don't normally condone violence either but lets face it some of those a$$holes need to get socked and if you do end up in the Thunderdome make sure your not the one at fault. As soon we all realize that it doesn't matter how you get down the mountain as long you respect it and those around you the sooner this bullsh!t will stop.
