Question For those that ride with "significant others"...

Have you had an experience while riding that made you consider never snowboarding with them again, OR breaking up/divorcing?

Not at all. We're at about the same level (except, he's on skiis), so we can easily keep up with eachother. And I'm pretty much the only girl that he can ride park with, so it all works out perfectly.

i went boarding with the lady this season. a few friends also came along.

my evaluation of the situation: i may possibly go with her again if it's just the two of us. if there are other people involved, she's not coming along unless she gets better.

I'd like to hear the story that sparked this thread...

For me, I'd really only get upset if my significant other was unmotivated or being a sissy-la-la about everything (I've ridden with those kind of girls and its put a damper on the day) My girl is neither of those so I always have a good time with her. I ride more often than her so I still get my runs in and its just a bonus when she comes along.

I tried that once.

Took a girl I just started dating out to the hill for an afternoon. She had claimed to have skied ages ago. We got off the lift and she got a bit impatient waiting for me to strap in. So, she took off full of piss and vinegar and as I was nearing the end of the run, I saw a ski laying on the ground with no one attached to it.. Then another one.. She ended up bailing and messing up her face. After that she demanded we go home so I walked her to the car, grabbed my phone and wallet and said I'd call a cab when I was ready to go.

Needless to say, we didn't date too long.

i tried to explain the basics of turning on heels and toes. i figured she'd want to learn the proper way to turn. but she says that she's boarded before and she'll be fine on her own. so i proceeded to watch her do a bunch of falling leafs on her heels all the way down the mountain, falling every half minute or so. every time i tried to say something she'd get mad. that was extremely frustrating.

I hate boarding with chicks! ...and noobs for that matter. Only one time have I been boarding with a group of girls that could shred.


I dont care how hot a girl is, I'd rather board with a mobbin crew

definitely don't teach significant others yourself, get them a lesson. I go with my wife all the time (she skis). Up until this year I usually did a lot of waiting around for her but this year she improved a ton and can fly down the mountain with me. We also have walkie talkies so if i venture off to the park and we get separated we can meet back up easily enough.

I board with my wife on every trip. We learned at the same time. We have a blast and while she is not as fast as me she is getting better with every run. She loves to snowboard as much as me so it is a win win! I agree with the post above dont even try to teach them pony up the cash for the lessons.

Best thing I ever did was get the wife private lessons with a chick instructor.

After that, we've been killing it. It's great to have something to do together and both really enjoy. She'll cruise the park and take pics and other than that, we jsut cruise the mountain together.

I push her a bit making sure she is trying new things, but it's delicate.

Example:
Spousal Unit: Black Diamond's are expert runs! I can't do them!

zakk: you shred the gnar better than any chick on this mountain. Take it easy, make big turns, scrub speed, just like how you learned to ride blues

Spousal Unit: No

zakk: Yes

Spousal Unit: *drops and does what was discussed*

Spousal Unit: I did it!!


I love that story. Also, cabin sex after a great day of riding is hard to beat
