Funny, I just had this same feeling on Sunday. Yes I suck, but remember when you sucked you loved snowboarding, that's why you became better. The reason I wasn't feeling it was because we just had a great powder day the last time. This time, it was only one day after a decent snow, and it was super hard pack. And it sucked. After the first run, I felt like sitting it out until the snow softened up a bit. I was also thinking maybe my season was over (even though there is a lot of spring riding around here).

But I kept at it, and then the snow softened, and then we started to mess around more on the terrain features (again we suck, but that's when its the most fun isn't it, learning?).

That is on my local not so great mountain (bear mountain). But I'm going to Norcal so I may hit Tahoe, and may hit Mammoth, so I can get excited for those. Just not my local mountains, I might be done with them for the season.

To be clear, I was not referring to Donutz's riding ability when I said that. I meant in general... hypothetical scenario: you go with a friend to the mountain and you want to ride all day but he says for no good reason he wants to leave after an hour. You then say "what? You want to leave the mountain for no good reason at all? You suck."

Hope that's not what everyone thought I meant.

WTF? Is this an end-of-season thing? Or do I need an MRI?
I climb since '85 and sometimes feel the same way...at the climbing gym mostly, when I get outdoor generally I'm stocked.
That didn't happen with snowboarding yet..If I don't know what to do I change angles, ride switch, try to learn more stuff.
Keep it fresh! Any sport will get boring if you do it long enough. Take a break, Hike, write, or just take a nap and wait for the stoke to build.

I got this feeling back in January when we had shit conditions, I think I was depressed though because I was in total snowboard mode and the weather was not cooperating. Conditions have been amazing lately so I haven't had that feeling, just exhaustion from riding every damn day

You jumped to a lot of fucking conclusions with no facts. Donutz never indicated that he didnt appreciate being able to ride or appreciate being on the mountain or being alive. All he said is that on that day he was not interested in riding. For that you said he sucks( yes, reread your fucking post; you clearly did say "you suck").

I have lots of days when I get up and decide that I would rather go rafting than snowboarding. It does not mean that I suck or don't appreciate having a great mountain like Hood in my back yard; it means I have a dynamic life with many interests and On any given day I might like doing thing better than another.

Sorry, but you appearant inability to grasp that makes my have the opinion that you are indeed a " one trick pony" who does not get that there is life outside of snowboarding. Your rude post to donutz is a symptom of what I find wrong with any sports fan; they become obseesed narrow minded fucks who can't think outside their little box.


So here's something to blow your fucking mind.... I am up here in Alaska to ride. Today I drive out to Alyeska to ride. The weather sucked. Rain down low, wet, sticky snow up top in zero visibility. I took one run totally fucking blind getting stuck in glop and got pissed off so said fuck it and drove back to anchorage and am at the Bush company looking at naked women.

So I didn't fucking "man up" and ride to show some asshole on a forum how "core" I am..... Fucking sue me!
You are clearly not the man (and I use that term loosely) for this position on this board.

You'll note that I never once used the abrasive tone that you are using. You'll also note that I I have at least second and third tricks... I can spell and understand the use of punctuation quite well. You'll understand (now) that Donutz and I are fine with our interaction and that though you became an administrator, you are still here to moderate... not instigate (which is what you are doing whether or not you admit it).

In bold you'll see that you provided a reason why you left the mountain (I've left in bad conditions as well), unlike Donutz who said "for no reason at all." I did not bash him. I said that what he was saying made me think he sucks. I left an open-ended discussion by asking him questions with hopes of understanding why someone could think this way.

* ding ding ding*
And in the red corner from washington, Snow "the Admin" Wolf.
And in the blue corner from undecided, Music "the challenger" Moves.
We want a clean fight. No hitting below the belt, no rabbit punches.

Round 1 starts at the ring of the bell
"DING"

Alaska bush country is a pretty well known strip joint up there. Dunno what going to a tittie bar has to do with being married or not. Married guys like to look at neked chicks too. Just cat fuck them or get a suck from them unless you have a funky relationship, I have met some that do .....

I would say bringing his wife/marriage into this discussion is below the belt....
