There's bad apples in every group, same would apply to boarders, split or otherwise. Why would you single out one group when the issue you describe is spread evenly? You were generalizing a whole group of mountain users as "kooks".

That sticker has been out for a while. I can't attest to what happens in CO, I've only been in the PNW. If that's the prevailing attitude it's just one more reason why I don't want to visit.

Flyfishing is the same deal. A few bad apples but mostly good people. But I will say having a popular movie come out upped the douche factor a butt load. BTW: no bait on the lower Deschutes.

Now you're being obtuse. You were doing exactly the same thing you called others out for. Who needs permission to've got almost 15k showing you definatly don't.

Funny thing is I've seen it the other way too. I've heard 'hardcore' resort riders talk about how back country skiers can't be good since they only do two runs a day. That was heated gondola ride fo sho, I think it was 6 skiers (mixed tele and alpine) and me. I just sat there with my ear buds in pretending to rock out and try to not laugh....

The dude I mentioned in the post before even said that about mountain bikers (when I told him I mtb but I am too cheap to pay for lift ticket for my bike) he said "well, you're never gonna get good that way. You can't get enough runs in. Just like back country skiers"

OMG I'll never be a PRO mtn biker. I will go sob in my coffee now I guess.

I don't know what it is but I seem to attract freaks like moths to a flame. I need to stop riding the singles line, I swear. I should start a "over heard in the gondola" twitter account!

yeah! like fly fishermen.. completely different in a bad way.. splitboarding is awesome but its not just for the elite..

great report! thanks for the pics! skinning up a groomed road is probably a good way to get used to the setup..

What are tele skiers to skiing?

It's ironic that you hate seeing a superior attitude towards others in splitboarding and then talk about keeping it real compared to those tele kooks.

All the telemarkers I know are pretty low key about it. Small sample size I guess?

the best reason to read TGR is so that when you see one of those douchbags with stickers on their skis (and they all have them) you can totally fuck with them. The best is to let them prattle on about how fucking RADICAL they are, then right before unloading slip in something about one of their little inside jokes right as they ride off the chairlift. total win.

I actually took a gondola ride with one of them yesterday, he spent the entire 10 minute ride telling me just how awesome he was. Not only at skiiing but downhill mountainbiking...uh huh.....I was saying the most obnoxious shit back to him. He was probably thinking "dayum this chicks a fucking ****!

uh, but back to your thread. fucking awesome pix and it's making me realize I need to move. Thanks
