Today I hate snowboarders!

There's been some concern that we've been unfairly picking on skiers, that snowboarders are no angels either. OK, so let's play fair and have at the snowboarders.

I'll start with the low-hanging fruit:

I hate snowboarders who line up right across the top of the run and sit down to strap in. Especially at the top of Lodge chair where the two chutes into Chuck's are fairly narrow.

(Hint: complaints like "I hate how snowboarders are so good looking" are not acceptable )


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

I hate snowboarders that barely survive flat basing it down a blue run and think they are epic.

I hate getting snaked on a jump at the last minute despite calling my drop.

I also hate those who chuck iceballs at strangers and mock people from the lifts.

The idiots in the pakr who sit at a feature and block everyone else from hitting it. Then get pissed when you go in front of them.

i dunno how other people feel about this, but...

snowboarders should definitely stick to the side of the trail if they're sitting down, but sometimes it irks me how they park themselves just past a lip or in front of an exit out of the glades. i mean, if you see tracks in the snow then it's probably not a good place to stop, right?

i was going through some glades and decided to leaveit after some time. so i spotted a good opening and proceeded to head out. just as i'm about to leave the trees and get into the opening a snowboarder just stops right in front of it. i sighed to myself, thought, "oh well" and slammed into her. it was a good thing i slowed down significantly at that point. i felt kind of bad because she was on a rental so she probably didn't know better but it was still annoying.

I hate snowboarders because they ride a piece of wood down a hill covered in frozen water and think it's cool. How fucking weak is that?

This is actually a good thing to bring up. When I first started out, I was guilty of this. Had no clue. Now I am more mindful of where I stop on the side (and starting to see the appeal of those parts…someday, that will be me playing around there )
