Come to think of it, I think you're right. They were either A)jealous over the fact that I have the courage to do it or B)someone in the past was a jerk to them.
Earlier in the day, I was on the chair with an older guy on skis, and he told me that he's wanted to try snowboarding, but never had the courage to try it. Told him that I really just started and the only way to do it is to try it out, and take some lessons. Guess some people are, exactly like you said, looking for a reason to be elitists dicks, and others want to try, but are nervous about it.
After some more thinking about it, I'm wondering how they would have reacted had I been on skis instead of a board. I did learn an extremely good lesson from it though. Stay well away from where trails come in at the sides. I know when I'm coming in from a side trail, I'll come to almost a complete stop to check uphill before going out(was taught from the beginning that when coming from a side trail that the ones on the main trail have the right of way).
It'd be nice to think that one day all of the stereotypes and bad attitudes would be gone, but unfortunately there are people that want to feel "above" others no matter what.

Well, speaking of skiers saying snowboarders always ruin trails and cut people off, I'd like to mention something. I just got back from our annual ski trip to VT. Went to Stratton and Mt. Snow. Stratton was fun, beautiful weather, and we had some fun running around in the woods, but at Mt. Snow, i was cut off by at least 12 skiers, and fell about 5 out of those 12 times trying to avoid them. 11 of them were jerks and just skied away or didn't notice (How can you not noticed a loud scrape and a big cloud of snow?) but one was different.

I was behind my friends and trying to catch up, so i just bombed some of the flats near one of the chair lifts. A skier came out of nowhere, maybe from the woods, and went directly in front of me causing me to run over his skis. However, this guy actually came up to me, said he was sorry and checked if i was O.K. Turns out not all skiers hate snowboarders. Just a lot of them.

Btw: If you go up to the peak and go down Mike's way and see a jump up to a buried chairlift, we did that fun to tap.

If you want to see a fast skier, go race some NASTAR racers. Make sure you wear those tight onesies too
Why people all stop and realize how pathetic they sound when they use made up "words" that 8 year olds make playing video games. "noob" isn't a word people...*sigh*

I think it's more the fact that it has been increasingly common for folks to bring alive a dead thread for their first post. It's actually kind of baffling.

Well, at least they READ some threads or used the search function

If you're new to the forum, you're probably going through the forum categories top to bottom instead of the "New Posts" button. You might not notice the "last post" date before responding to somethign that sounds interesting.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

Then you'd think they'd start with the "welcome new members" post. I don't know, it's just weird to me I guess.
