For me it seems to be dependent upon the place I'm at. There's a place I go in Northern Michigan where most of the people are pretty nice regardless of their age and what's strapped on their feet. There's also another place I have gone quite a few times, not far from this other one, where I swear I have been deliberately sprayed by members of ski patrol, on skis of course, on SEVERAL occasions. It's probably not a coincidence that there seems to be a larger proportion of assholes in general at this other place, and the majority of them happen to be on skis.

Here's a good one. So I'm in the terrain park, and I see this moron doing the splits over a box, jabbering like hell. Then another kid comes and plows into him, and guess what? BOTH ON SKIS. I chewed these two out for about a minute, one for standing on the end of a rail, the other for not looking.

This. It's about the person on the equipment, not what they are riding. There are arrogant pricks on both. I've gotten into it with just as many punk boarders as skiers.

We are all punks to someone. It's all perspective.

completely oblivious. I could have smacked her.

Since I'm not very experienced, I try to pay attention and at least make a sensible run that people can get around me on. A couple times I've ridden lifts with a skier that would tell me how to ride, the one I remember was a guy telling me how to ride moguls because snowboarders "don't know how to and scrape off the snow". I just listened to him and nodded. Meanwhile, a skier below us was scraping tons of snow off of Alberta Face right below the chair.

I just try to have a good time, and not get in the way of anyone else doing the same. And those condemning skiers would change their tune if they saw how often (especially for a new rider) I help out skiers by bringing their "yard sales" back to them.

Stiff armed this 6 year old kid skier the other day cause he was coming into home plate at my legs. Was kinda funny cause he bounced back about two feet.

In addition to this I watched a women try to pizza down a black run. While yes I'm on the east coast this was a nice pitch run and it ended with her rolling down the hill.

Also I would like to say the worst gaper we have around here is the " I once went to CO gaper". They stop every 3 feet and tell there friends how CO was great but this mountain is not half bad either and they expected complete sheets of ice to ski on...

this is pretty much my only complaint about skiiers, they are not cool skiing plus they act like they own the slope lol
