LOL You don't need a steep pitch in less than a foot of fresh powder.

You don't need to be a kamikaze on the mountain to ride powder
Green trails should be left with powder. It makes falling less painful. It's easy to find groomed stuff around here anyway. Powder is rare.n Why destroy it. And people who like to stay safe and not get hurt and go a moderate speed enjoy riding powder.
You are stuck on greens and telling others they need to improve their skills? Maybe you just need to grow a set and go to steeper terrain. Greens get groomed get over it.

I really think you should open your own mountain. Obviously these other owners don't understand a thing about operating a resort. Grooming a green run? Idiots!
Who said anything about epic smart ass? I said I had no problem getting stuck. They are idiots grooming a green/blue run after a fresh snowfall. It doesn't snow that often, let the people enjoy the powder and People who want groomed stuff can have it the next day and 90% of the time when it's groomed.

I'm fine with blues. It really depends on the mountain.

Maybe I don't want to get injured and just enjoy cruising in the powder. Maybe I'm an adult and I don't see the reason to get injured playing around on a hill. An injury is a guarantee if you go really fast. Not if, when.
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

Oh and I should add it's my first season snowboarding and I had no problem riding powder on a green trail. So it's fine for beginners. It's nonsense that you need groomed slopes instead of a few inches of fresh powder. Maybe your first couple of days riding, but after that a few inches of powder is fine.

BTW, there's a way to go down steeper slopes without going way too fast and killing yourself. It's called turning.

Apline racers turn and their going 70+mph and they get seriously injured and/or killed.

If you're turning down a slope without constantly hitting the brakes/leafing and the slope is steep you're going to be flying down the mountain. You will catch an edge eventually and get seriously injured. You're in denial if you don't believe that's true.

STFU noob. You have no idea what you are talking about, especially in powder.

LOL
I was linking turns no problem in powder as a beginner, but I have no idea what I'm talking about when I say I prefer powder? WTF? alrighty then.

I enjoy riding in powder on green/blues and believe that the trails shouldn't be groomed after a snowstorm until the end of the day. What exactly is so ridiculous about this opinion?

Just typical internet forum B.S. You get it in every forum, youtube video comment section ect.

Goodbye! I'm done with this thread. I't s a shit throwing contest now. Just was looking for answer about which resort in the area grooms fresh snow the least. But it degrades into people telling me to STFU and the likes. Another usueless forum ruined by immature juveniles.
