Default The Rivalry: Snowboarders vs Skiers

I'm new to the game but already I've heard of the rivalry between snowboarders and skiers on the mountain.

What can you tell me about it?

Who is the biggest culprit and what are the annoyances affecting the two?

they make moguls. we have "attitudes". i personally dont have beef with skiiers and i dont have an attitude. so i haven't really experienced this rivalry.

Comes down to the personalities, maturity, and egos involved. Pretty silly if you ask me. Just respect everyone.

like he said above ...

them: moguls
us: attitudes

plus

them: edge to edge all over the hill
us: either too fast or were scraping all the snow off 'their' hill

other stuff

its all fun to me, not to be taken seriously

I've never had any issues with a skier. Actually the only people i have issues with are the young 11-15 punks who think they don't have to obey simple park etiquette, or just simple manners.

There is no rivalry. It's all in peoples' heads. There are obnoxious snowboarders who get on everyone's nerves, not just skiers. And there are old fashioned skiers who think snowboarders are nothing but trouble. The only instances of a "rivalry" are at resorts which still will not allow snowboards on their hills. But there are only 3 or 4 left and they are under pressure to change.

Besides, there are a dozen threads on this already. Everybody has had bad experience with an idiot on skis, but you can't blame that on all skiers. My wife skis and I board and nobody has ever shouted hate speech at us.

Truth. Old douchies need to get their heads out of their asses and the "newschool" snowboard douches need to stop talking out of their asses.
