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.

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!

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

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?

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
