Another awesome thread to watch evolve, LOL!

You were told where the powder can usually be found, you don't want to drive there, oh well.

It doesn't take long. Like any other skillset. Doesn't matter what color the run is. Lose the ego buddy. Do you get paid to ride? Then you're doing it for fun so buzz off. The idea that pow is only for experts/risk taking adrenaline junkies is laughable. Around here blues and greens are nearly the same anyway. Not much difference between blue and green. A snowboard was BUILT for powder. Much better than ski's in powder. Obviously there's a cultural thing about powder here that like many cultural things doesn't make any sense. Sort of like snowboarders should be banned from ski area's..... Yeah. LOL

Oh and golf course hills aren't long enough for snowboarding and I like a chairlift. It's like a 2 second ride. Fun for a tube, but not snowboarding unfortunately. You're really going to compare nearly a mile long blue/green runs to a golf course hill? Are you kidding me?

I like playing in powder...simple. And I think a few green blue runs should be ungroomed after a fresh dump . Completely reasonable. All of you can go buzz off if you have a problem with that. You think you're all bad ass's riding your blacks. Big deal. You have a hobby. It's kind of juvenile how ridiculous some of you sound. You guys think you're elite. You're not. Just a bunch of arrogant jerks. I never made a personal attack against anyone, just gave an opinion. Yet I was being told to stfu and all this other nonsense. Grow up! Oh and I should add that the blacks are groomed around this area anyway as well so it's kind of a moot point.

You should listen to that saying.

Having fun?

I was told multiple things. Actually I was told by some members that it can only be found once a year if that on the EC. One person told me I'd have to drive to VT, which I'm going to do once in a while. It's just I'd rather avoid driving over 300 miles. It would be much easier if local hills didn't groom EVERYTHING like a lunatic after a fresh snowfall.

Again, my question of which local resort does the least grooming after a storm, my question was not answered. That was all I was really looking for. Not a lecture from a bunch of elitist egotistical jackass's who all carry the same opinion and try to insult people who differ from them.

Goodbye. I'm done with this forum. It's useless(yes...yes...don't let the door hit me on the way out. I'm used to internet forum people)

If it is up to me, I say let the door hit your ass on the way out. It's obvious you know more than everyone here after four times boarding, enjoy!
