To the OP and other similar minded folk: there is good information and even some good people to be found on the forum.... but the chaff you have to wade through, and the garbage that many folks like to put on the board is considerable. The reasons that this is the case are less important than the fact that the site owners care way, way less about the 'user/visitor experience' here than page hits.

Motorcycle.com runs more than a few forums that I frequent (i ride a sportbike, so i get around to a couple of them), but this one does have more adolescents (of varying ages) ranting and insulting one another on it than I see on others.

My suggestions if you don't want to deal with the drama:
1. Limit your time/posts here and go elsewhere for snow sports related discussion (Epic ski, TGR, etc)
2. Don't give the site any money (memberships/ads, etc)
3. Use the search before bothering to post a question. A great many things get asked over and over again, receiving different answers from different people. Unless the information you are looking for is specific to current times/season... it has almost certainly already been discussed half a dozen times.

If you do stick around, it will help to recognize this place for what it is at its core..... IRC for the 21st century. If you aren't old enough to understand the reference then my apologies.
Jesus Christ this fucking guy again. You're still butt hurt over the numerous times you've been thrown under the bus for posting retarded shit and not knowing your ass form a hole in the ground. Seriously when you have more than 30 days on snow in your entire life you might have a rock to stand on.

Prime example of a douche bag here. Now go drive into head on traffic or sit in a blind spot would you.

wow

wow, ive been away from the forums for a while.
The gear purchasing was done and the resorts werent open so not much snowboard stuff to talk about other than to get jealous of people who started riding 2 months ago (snowolf).

Apparently i've been missing a lot of drama but seriously i dont remember ever seeing anything like this on these threads. This would be considered a big fight on the Bodybuilding.com Teen forums and believe they see their fair shair of shit disturbers.

Anywase its good to be back, my local hill (i cant say mountain unfortunately) opened on friday and im here.

About that...

If you want to avoid drama, definitely don't go to TGR. To really avoid drama you have to not go to internet forums at all.

Epic Ski doesn't have much in the way of snowboarding discussion.

I haven't found a better site than this for discussion specific to snowboarding, even though there are only around 25 regular posters from what I can tell.

My take as a noob to this forum.... Last spring there's a lot of threads where I can pick up info on better riding techniques, equipment etc from the more experienced people

While there's still great new info here this fall, it has been more of



Maybe it's just early in the season.

There have to be more than 25 regulars on here.

..I'm counting myself as a regular...maybe I think too highly of myself.

It's the pent up angst and bitterness from the have nots (regarding snow) and the haves.

I made up that number of course, but what I meant was that it seems that only a very small number of posters here provide most of the excellent content. On other non-snowboarding forums that I frequent I see hundreds of familiar names posting regularly but on this one I recognize only a handful.
