Actually, I have had MORE bad experiences personally with skiers than snowboarders when it comes to being jerks about speed and people "getting in their way" so to speak... Yeah, I just don't know what the big hurry is for people like that...

But I agree with the rest, it's the person.
I've been on the hill only twice, and have encountered some bad(a$$hole) snowboarders.

Once again its not the equipment but the user, But I also agree that there seems to be more assholes on skis than on boards. But most of the jerk skiers I have met tend to be a little me older in thier middle age years and are kind of hoity toity to start they have all the latest gear drive thier Porche to the mountain in 6 inches of snow. Maybe it's some kind of some kind of thought process that they have cause sking has been around longer, you that whole hierarchy birthright kind of bullshit. I don't know; like I said it just seems like more pricks are on skis

Around here, skiers and boarders get along fairly well. It's a smaller hill, and not too much of the "I'm better than you are" bullshit goes on. I've only had a problem with anyone once, and that was bullshit with some kid who didn't like me.

You know I think that most skiers are older than boarders,And I know back in the days you couldnt even ride in a ski resort,boarders were seen as punks starting trouble.And believe me I've seen the young boarder who thinks hes hot shit.but the thing is if you wanna go 100 mph,ride the double diamonds.And dont disrespect my follow boarders or super Laz is gonna coma at ya!Like the water boy...lol

I agree that there are a handfull of a$$holes on the mountain both skier and snowboarder. On one side the much older elitist skier and on the other the steezy laugh at you when you fall down adolesent snowboarder. I don't normally generalize but in my experiences that is what I have come up with.

I don't normally condone violence either but lets face it some of those a$$holes need to get socked and if you do end up in the Thunderdome make sure your not the one at fault. As soon we all realize that it doesn't matter how you get down the mountain as long you respect it and those around you the sooner this bullsh!t will stop.

EVen now that I ride more than I ski, I still feel the majority of the punkish, asshole behavior tends to be with the teenager boarders. And, there are a lot more boarders sitting around that you have to watch out for than there are skiers, but most who have done it enough know to keep to the side and out of the way. I dont care what you have strapped to your feet, as long as you get the hell out of the way after a crash, or dont pitch your lunch in the middle of a run.
