I guess I have been delusional for 15 years of snowboarding by continuing to push myself to be better and do things today that I was unable to do yesterday. It has been fun, but man, I guess I have really been rolling the dice according to PowderMonkey.

Seriously, you donít think there is a difference between alpine racing and normal people snowboarding for fun and pushing their abilities? If you are smart, you can easily learn to ride black diamond runs with powder without getting hurt.

In all honesty, I am just messing with you a little, but I am also trying to help you understand that you really are provoking most of what is coming your way. Clearly some of the people on this forum are ďmeanerĒ than others and type stuff they would never say to anyone in person (some people type stuff they would actually say in person because they just donít care). But letís be honest for a second, you are delusional if you donít think you havenít provoked anything by acting like you know more than anyone on here when youíve said yourself that youíve only snowboarded 4 times.

I agree. If you have the ability. But you're going to have to control your speed. If you go down the mountain extremely fast/"bombing it" regardless whether it's blue/green/black especially on hardpack(or worse ice) conditions you will eventually get injured. This is common sense. That's what I meant to say it. Anyway, this is totally off topic! People hijacked this thread with irrelevant conjecture and then blame me! I asked a simple question. You guys are clearly just trying to keep me going.

How do you think people acquire that ability?

If you're this freaked out about "bombing" resort runs in Connecticut, I think you'd shit yourself if you saw the kind of stuff people are doing around here.

Like shooting fish in a barrel, apparently.

Grow up son and yes if you can't ride less than a foot of powder on a green slope, you need to improve your skills. Unless you have a lot of flat spots on the green slope, That's pathetic.

A lot of people "ride" blacks are just leafing it most of the way. The others are absolutely flying at over 40mph and are guaranteed to get seriously injured eventually doing that. Everyone catches an edge at speed eventually It's their body...so it's their business. I don't want to do that. Hardly means I need to grow a set. I don't like hospitals or feel the need to permanately injure my body for a hobby. I think you take yourself too seriously
I think you are dealing with revisionist history here. You brought up the idea that EVERYONE is going to get hurt on a black run just because someone mentioned that you should think about moving to the black runs if you really like powder. You are the one that made the leap from "trying out a black run in powder" to "bombing 40 mph" and getting hurt. You basically told everyone on this forum they are stupid for riding black runs because they are going to get hurt. How do you not see that?

I ride black runs all the time and I don't leaf down, and I don't go 40 mph....especially in powder. That is what we were talking about here. Once you have the skills to ride a black run on a powder day you will realize that it isn't that hard, you don't go that fast, and it is SUPER fun.

Nobody ever suggesting doing this. People suggested finding powder in other places (i.e. off the trail or on a non-groomed black) and somehow you got to the point where you are talking about bombing on hardpack and ice? Talk about off-topic.

omg....I called everyone stupid for riding blacks? No I didn't. I meant to say people who go super fast are eventually going to get hurt. Maybe I type wrong on one of these threads. Wasn't really paying attention. That was never what this thread was about anyway. I never asked about black runs in my op. They groomed the black ones as well. Was the title of my post people who ride black runs are idiots? You guys start up some silly irrelevant debate because you don't want to see powder on few trails of blue and greens for a reason I don't really understand.

Who the hell cares what I or someone else rides!? Whatever you like to do lol I have fun riding greens and blues. You like riding the blacks. Good for you. Maybe I'll enjoy blacks too one day, but I'd still enjoy cruising powder on blues and greens. No reason you can't ride powder on the blues or greens assuming there aren't big flat spots and it's also dependent on how much powder. This is the east coast. How much snow is going to dump in 12 hours anyway? Some freshies are fun. OK, this is getting on my nerves now. No reason to continue arguing with strangers on an internet forum about a really silly argument.

It could have ended it a long time ago if you stopped when you said you were going to.

Hmmmm, doing something that makes us "guaranteed to get seriously injured" is pretty stupid. You insisted that it was bound to happen and that we're delusional if we think otherwise. Translation....riding black runs and pushing yourself is a stupid thing to do. that is a very logical conclusion based on the things you were typing.

Sure, maybe you didn't mean that, but I guarantee that it sounded that way to most of the experienced snowboarders on this forum.
