Do you Listen to Music while you Ride? Opinions?

I got a lecture from some guy while on the lift, he started after I got my phone out to change songs. I typically just keep one earbud in but I have it pretty loud. I can tell when people are behind me, and I can hear people talking easily.. what's the big deal?

When I ride alone if it's not busy I'll blast the music with both earbuds in.

Seems like there are quite a few people who are opposed to riding with music, some have even compared it texting while driving (yeah, I'm guilty of that too at times) does the general public have that much trouble concentrating? I'm surprised he didn't fault me for chewing gum.

The dude sounds like an asshat.

Sometimes I ride with music, sometimes not. It really just depends on my mood and who I am riding with. As long as you can hear people around you I see no problem. If people had such a hard time concentrating while listening to music all major snowboarding/skating events would be completely quiet with no music blasting. Even worse, if people try comparing listening to music while you ride to texting while driving then they are simple minded and not using their brain fully (maybe they are, who knows) to think about the differences.

When I watch someone double cork it during the x games this year while texting then I will change my mind.

Never heard of that. I don't ride with music but my buddy does.

Should have told him, downhill has the right of way so I don't need to hear shit.

That's just ridiculous. What was he claiming? That you were crashing into people? Upsetting him with the sound leakage? Offending him by not talking to him? Breaking a law?

Only time I don't have tunes going is when I am in the backcountry but that is different. If I am riding with a group 1 earbud in but if I am solo then rocking both pretty loud.

I got that lecture in Steamboat from some asshole that hit me from behind. It didn't end well after I punched his Nazi loving ass in the nose. Fuck it do what you want.

i used to prefer riding without music but now i ride with one earbud in

i don't usually listen to music when i'm in the park because the park run is just too short.

Music is built into my helmet and I blast it but it's an open ear headphone design so I can still kinda hear, normally only crank it when I'm alone though. Fuck with some dbag on the lift thinks as long as your not crashing into people and being a dick or whatever.
