For whatever reason, there is a serious lack of activity from female members even on female specific snowboarding sites or sites with a chick section. Check out some of those forums. Ghost towns.

This one actually seems to have more activity comparatively.

I don't get it. Most women generally like to talk about things.

One thing I've often wondered and been tempted to post is why there are all these threads about girlfriends or wives - gear questions, riding with them, whatever - yet none or not many of those women are or seem to be members here?

Obviously this forum is comprised of mostly men. All of my riding friends are guys, so it's a normal environment to me. But perhaps it's not what some chicks are looking for? I don't know.


And as for not naming names, (certain member) is much like my guy friends. So I find those posts more endearing and humorous rather than scary and offensive.

Edit: I'm female if that isn't apparent.
