I was wondering when this topic was going to make it here. Figured I'd let someone else start it. Nice work shred. This should be fun.

Don't give them the attention they seek. Fuck 'em.

I don't get the whole skiers vs. boarders thing beyond good natured ribbing. Plenty of good people and plenty of fucking douchebags doing both.

The way I see it, the article is only about intermediate snowboarders still struggling around the mountain. And as for the backcountry stuff, it seems that to be a backcountry snowboarder, you have to really invest in the correct gear and have more drive to go and go it. This would naturally mean that these people would be more experienced at snowboarding. As for skiing, all you need is to slap some skins on your skis and you are off... any jokester with rentals could go skinning into the backcountry. Anyone with a splitboard could do the same, but the latter is less likely.
