Yes. not really.

Totally depends on who you have. My best friend is a skier (who also snowboards) and there's never a problem at all. He's cool about it and I'd love to go to the slopes with him anytime.

Some of my friends at my college are skiers, and they're a bunch of stuck up pricks about it. After about the fifteenth "Let's go to Alta" comment it starts to get old... they're also the people who seem to have to have a certain standard about places. (i.e. I'll board anywhere I can. To them, has to be Colorado, Canada, something like that).

Some of the old skiers are really cool though. I've gotten several of them who freely say they would have loved to snowboard if it was around when they were a kid.

All based off personal experience.

It really just depends more on the person. Both skiers and riders can be douche bags and I have definitely met both kinds on the slopes and chairlifts. Snowboarders are still stereotyped though, which is unfortunate.

The other day I was at our local hill, and this skieródressed in jeansósaid "These worthless snowboarders have to sit down and strap their feet in each time they start a run." I was just like, wow, what a douche. There will always be assholes on the slopes and I guess the best way to deal with them it to just not let their crap bother you. I could have easily responded back to him with a compliment on his "jeans" HaHa, soaked all the way through I might add. But I just kept my mouth shut.

On the other side of the spectrum, I have talk to skiers, good ones at that, who express a big interest in snowboarding, and were just cool as shit.

It depends on what the skier does.

really depends on the person, all my familymembers are skiers where i go with. but thats not a problem for me or for them, but sometimes some skiers are just braking right behind you when you wait for the others(and yes i ALWAYS lay on the side of the slope in good sight) so some skiers are assholes, but some snowboarders suck too. its just the person.
but yes snowboarders are often stereotyped which really sucks in my opinion.

I get hate from skiers who can't ski, who still think it's cool to hate on snowboarders. Most people that rip are pretty cool!
