This may be the most sensible comment of the entire thread. Snowboarding does take a bit more commitment, so if you're a couple-times-a-year person, you're more likely to be a skier just by default.

The bar down thing doesn't bother me. Most of the lifts in whistler have foot rest so it's actually nice to put the bar down.

There are idiots strapped to skis and snowboards, but atleast around here there are a lot more on skis. There are a lot of tree runs i like to hit that have some nice kickers at the end of them on my local hill. I find skiers and snowboarders alike sitting at the end of the tree run on top of the kickers ALL the time. I dont mind if you fall, accidents happen, but move out of the way, dont throw out a tent and camp there! Its hard enough to scrub speed when going through paths with 3 feet of clearance already, i dont need a human obstacle to deal with as well.

There are also quite a few runs that have wide areas, then funnel into a hard right with a ~8ft wide path that are fun to bomb through, when there arent literally 5-6 skiers standing blocking the whole path most of the day.

Heard alot of comments rom skiers during a day that had 15-20 min lines on every single lift that my snowboard took up to much place in the line...

Funny how people don't realize that you might be swedish to, seeing as its packed with swedish people this time of the year in Austris, always so embarrassed when you reply in swedish.

Oh and I wouldnt mind seeing the bitch that screamed "suckers" to me and my brother when we were taking the lift down (my brother was running a fever and my binding was broken) burn in hell.

Yet, you both still took the lift up?

My binding broke while I got on the lift, and my brother only took the lift up to eat with us (can't miss the traditional last meal at our regular slope-restaurant before leaving for home).

And still, why should she care that we took the lift down?

This is just me, I snowboard, but I hate it when a group of snowboarders lies down to put on their bindings across the run opening. Whenever I am getting off the ski lift there are always novice riders who block off the opening an take forever. Get over to the side of the run entrance near the benches! I just felt like saying that, but I do despise skier's mentality.

Really...its super hard to get your board on the rest??? Gimme a fucking break...how big is your board? I was just at Powder Mountain last week with some ski buddies I ride with. Sure they like to put down the bar to rest their feet...I have no problem with getting my board up there...in fact with the slow ass lifts at Powder Mountain, it keeps your feet from falling asleep. Seems pointless to complain about something like this unless you do get whacked in the back of the head or something.

^ agreed, putting the board up on the rest isn't hard at all.
