This is even more perplexing given his suggestions of checking out Epic Ski or TGR.

Epic Ski has virtually nothing in the way of snowboard specific discussion... not a bad place for perspective on locations from what I imagine are mostly middle aged professionals, but other than that, not anything like what you get here on snowboarding.

And TGR, while a place I enjoying checking out, is not a forum for the <20 a day a year resort rider. Just isn't. What benefit is that forum really for someone on the snow 5-10 days a year? Or the new to the sport rider?

For sure there is some nonsense here.. as someone who has ridden since '93 but was out of the game for a bit, this place was super valuable to me to get caught up on the what's what in snowboarding when I dove back in.

Try bringing up snowboarding on TGR. You'll be met with a lot of hostility.

EpicSki has a lot of older folks who are having a hard time coming to terms with fat rockered skis, but nothing at all about snowboarding.

Yes some members get treated better for trolling behavior but this forum still kicks ass though I like the general vibe around here

Let me help you with that. Imagine you're with a group of friends and you're talking smack at each other. Anyone listening in might think you were about to pull guns any moment, but you all know it's in fun, and it's really kind of a ritual. Now some bozo that no-one knows steps up and starts giving one or more of you the same kind of lip. Will you put up with it, or will you collectively give him a lesson in manners?

This forum is a "good-ol'-boys/girls" club to the extent that it's a community, and the regular people know each other. And by "know", I mean a lot of them are face-to-face friends, ride together, know each other by name, etc.

Where we run into problems is some noob comes on, thinks the trash-talk is the way to fit in, and starts insulting people right and left. And it's not "just in fun" when it's a stranger. You have to earn the right to talk to me that way.

The point is that when you join a community like this, you should spend some time on the sidelines figuring out the vibe, and who's who, and what's acceptable. Doing otherwise shows bad manners or poor judgement and gets treated as such.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

Doesn't everyone pack their assault rifle on the hills? Them resorts are dangerous territory with the gargoyles everywhere.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

I carry a shiv for lift line shankings and a TechNine for slackcountry ride by assaults. Assault rifle isn't practical unless deep in the backcountry hunting Gnargoyles in their nesting areas.

How about the older member trash talking a new member because specifically he is a 'noob' and NOT because that noob came in with offensive comments? I agree with you but i still can see the other side of it in my opinion. Anyways as i said I like the vibe here lets keep it that way
