Default Stupidest snowboard stereotype?

Ok, i was bored today, couldnt get to the slopes, and found a thread that commented on snowboard stereotypes. So... i was wondering, whats the dumbest thing a skiier has ever said to you or one of your friends? Primarily stereotypical things.

ow the one i hear all the times too is that snowboarding is easier too learn then skiing... i used to ski like 6 years, and i ride now for 4 years, but snowboarding was waaaaaay harder too learn then skiing in my opinion.

Yeah I have heard that too.
The only time I will learn "skiing" is if I end up getting a splitboard for backcountry. Other than that, screw it. I'm all about two feet on one board. No ACL worries

snowboarders ruin the snow. i can kinda understand that with beginners plowing down steeper slopes but most of teh time a little bit of ice is better than moguls with ice in teh wells.

Mmm, that *can* happen, but i think its more rare than a lot of people make it out to be? A beginner on a steep slope will probably be keep their speed down, which somewhat limits how much snow they will displace on their way down if they plow it

I hear this a lot, but what my friend said is that skiing is easy to get started with (Start carving) but hard to get really good at, while snowboarding is the exact opposite. Snobwoarding is hard to learn, but once you get the carving down, it all goes by like that *Snaps*.
