Default Are these guys stuck in the 90's?

I was blown away by the sheer ignorance of these skiers comments in the Alta lawsuit thread on TGR. Does this exist everywhere? Or just Co? I don't ever experience bitter skiers like this around Mt. Bachelor. I get that old skiers dislike snowboarders but shit, this is just foolish.

Knuckledraggers sue Alta

Because TGR is full of cubicle jockeys that suck at life and are pissed off that while they spend countless hours portraying a die hard skier on the Internet, they are in fact the Jong, Gape, Gaper, Douchenozzle, etc. etc. that they mock so hard.

The harsh reality of looking in the mirror everyday and seeing the withered shell of a human looking back at them has become too much to take and with little Suzie and Johnny too engrossed in their iPad to give a flying fuck about them as well as having a wife that gave up on life. This is their only outlet.

Tgr forums is populated by malevolent douchenozzles. 90% of them are armchair enthusiasts living in the Midwest or their parent's basement, the other 10% rip. Ever wonder why they call themselves "maggots", rhymes with something don't it? I wouldn't pay much attention to it, and honestly that forum has tainted the entire Tgr brand for me, I know they don't epitomize what tgr is all about, but they try really hard to impress upon everyone that they do. They will be so pleased to see that we're wasting our time talking about them. Half of their threads are about how fucking cool they are because all of the gapers ask them stupid questions about their really fat skis in the lift line.

JONG - Jack-Off-Newbie-Gaper. Had to look that one up, seen it a couple times but couldn't figure it out.

What does living in the midwest have to do with it? If they are an "armchair enthusiast" it shouldn't matter where they are at.

I still can't wrap my head around any snowboarder wanting to ride that place of hatred. With all the other resorts, why go somewhere where people like this exist? The negativity is on a whole nother level at Alta. As a human, I would never want to introduce my family to a resort where people like this frequent. It's a fucking hobby where people slide down snow!!! People act like if snowboarders ride there that their life will be ruined. This whole thing is a joke. I feel sorry for both sides.

more like stuck in the '80s, i haven't heard ''knuckledragger said in seriousness since then

just an outlet for peoples latent racist tendencies imo...not pc to go on skin color so some other 'division' is needed to fill the gap

the more i see this, even though i think the sb ban is wrong and that we will 'win' the suit, i think, just leave alta to these dildos. snowbird is right next door and a better mountain for boarding anyhow

I think it's a benefit to keep Alta a skiers mountain. That way those people don't get introduced to the rest of the snow sport society and live in their little bubble.

you know I was all supporting opening Alta to snowboarders but now think about it I would never want to be dealing with people like these (which I already have cuz I live in an area most people are like this. selfish and self-centered thinking they deserve and own everything).

The bans are so dumb... I don't mind as much when people at least admit that they exist to appeal to the entitled, elitists dbag skiers, I hate it when they try and rationalize that they exist for other reasons.

As an east coaster I feel like Mad River is a place I would like to ride if I had the option. Alta I'm sure has some rad terrain but there are other places like that in the area, MRG is kind of unique out here, natural, ungroomed and good EC terrain. I also like the co-op vibe, sucks that they hold a 25 year old grudge and don't like me because I chose one plank over two. Their loss.. I'll continue to spend my money at Stowe and S'Bush
