haha you silly skier :3

so at my hill on one of the runs there is a big drop. it isn't straight down but it is really steep so if you Ollie off with speed you fly. anyway i was doing a bomb run to it and this retarded skier decided to pass me right b4 the drop. he rode 2 feet from my left and im regular so that's my blind side. he was so close to wrecking me. i was at 35-40 mph and him at around 45. woulda been bad. i got revenge though. he went to nollie and his ski tips dug in. he went flying forward and landed on his face! i asked if he was alright and he said yea so i rode away laughing. he had perfect form for his crash too. perfect straight as a board superman style, and angled face first to the ground.

I hate skiers for this reason, they are stuck up assholes who don't realize that snowboarders have way less maneuverability and have blind spots.

I ate shit last time I was up and some bitch skiers woman went by laughing

They piss me off more than I could possibly explain!

Don't know about the maneuverability comment, although I agree about the blind spot. I have way more control as a rider than I ever did as a skier. But, maybe I was just a crappy skier.

It's that their feet aren't attached to one board that in my opinion makes them more maneuverable.

Just my opinion...

that was always my problem -- kept crossing the tips. That's kind of the ski version of an edge catch.

Yeah, my bro rented some ski's and they where so awful, the tips back to the bindings of both skis the edges had been separated from people crossing the tips.


I think (and hope) he's gonna got back to a snowboard, he twisted his ankle first run :thumbdown: kinda made my day shitty

I've been skiing for years.. I never had issues with boarders when I skied.. nor do they with me. I made the change to snowboarding a few years back. I like it better, especially in the powder/park! (Not to mention it's a little easier on the f**ked up knees)

The major issue is tourists are skiers -- Snowboarding takes a few days to learn on the bunny hill, tourists want to see the majority of the mountain while ruining everyone else's runs.
Don't bash Skiers, Bash Texans.. (Or Whoever your big tourist group is!)

Snowolf, you're right
Some of the people that ski are pretty chill, super friendly, and some just the opposite!


I haven't been around enough skiers to form a solid opinion, but I can say from what I've experienced, most of the older skiers are stuck up assholes, that's just the ones I've encountered on the slopes, the ones that are inches away from running into you going 45mph
Like seriously?
You people have a whole slope to use!
Stay outta my bubble!
