The content on Epic is on par with the content here; perhaps even more mundane on Epic most of the time.... What ski should I get, who makes the best base layers, why do snowboarders hit me all the time, etc etc.

When more general snow-sports related topics do come up (resort expansion, resort reviews, back/side country, ski movies, etc) the tone of the discussion is typically a couple of notches above what you find here in terms of tone, civility and perspective. As you said yourself, the fact that lots of middle aged folks frequent the forums.

The main reason I go there when is because I know that I won't be subjected to reading yo-mama jokes/flames that go on for 2-3 pages.

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?
TGR has more information and experience on it in just one of its forum than this entire site has. Uh, why wouldn't any rider benefit from reading posts by a large variety of very seasoned, experienced folks? Your question doesn't make any sense to me. I might read this forum to find out what NS's latest decks are for the current season.... but I read TGR to find out (or keep up with) what has been going on with ski/snow sports and resorts in general.

[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.
To each their own. I won't deny that there is useful information here, especially for the new rider who hasn't had any 1st hand exposure to the sport (and I said as much in my last post). However I find this place less useful and much more tedious to deal with than back in ~2008 when I started riding.

So either I'm still some clueless noob that still can't exit a lift properly, meaning that board has dumbed itself down over the past few years.....

...or maybe reading a thread about backhanding gapers on the mountain (http://www.snowboardingforum.com/sno...-mountain.html) et.al. just isn't interesting to me anymore because I've been there/done that enough to be bored with it.

A lot of people here are perfectly happy with the current state of this site. Good for them. I'm not. I think it is in a rut and I think one easy way to get it out of its rut is to keep it from becoming 4chan.

Read on another forum: "If someone held a gun to my head and said, "You have to move to Salida tomorrow", I'd probably do it. If they told me I had to go to Breckenridge instead, I think I'd just let them pull the trigger."

Tarzan, the easy solution is to stop coming here.

You constantly bitch so why continue to expose others to your misery?

life IS good.

NOW! You want to threaten me with a ban or suspension. GO AHEAD DO IT! GO AHEAD SCOTT. Show how brave you are! And then I will have an email to Gary and Jim in a heartbeat and they will certainly realize that your not hurting me...but members on this site.....and I will clearly show how you attack me just on a simple post!

You will not threaten me! Like I said you wanna be a big shit go ahead! Pull your trigger if it makes you happy.

Obviously I struck a valid nerve with your politics forum and you cant take it so you reduce yourself threatening me...And I have no vendetta as much as I finally realized its a waste of time...Its boring...And if you actually look at my post count not much at all has been in your forum. You have always been over dramatic about your politics section...You get mad because me being a 12 year veteran of those forums with you..you know I am right! and I really wont bring it up because it will only make you look worse!

Go for it.

Message has already been sent to Gary and Jim!~

Ohh

Its not a really good idea to dish other snowboarders on here. See people love this trip for what it is..I am not buying any friends....these people do make friends for life..its one of the real things people can actually take from this forum....But the trip is a real deal, with real people and yea...your just insulting them not me when you type this stuff..
Just wanted to go back and quote this to use this new smiley!

The only problem I have is when people try to tell someone to do something. It's a forum, give them advice and hope they take it. If someone else gives them bad advice, point it out and let it be. If they don't take it, it's their own fault.

Half of the stupid ass arguing comes from this. If you know what's right say it and be done with it. The person asking the advice should take that and do some research for themselves too. If they don't and take the wrong advice it's their own dumbass fault. No need to have pages of arguments about someone giving some one else bad info, (unless it's down right retarded), if they just blindly make their decision based on someone's post on the internet they deserve to get fucked.

We're not here to make decisions for someone, just give them info so they can make a better decision.

With that being said..........you guys need to condense these arguments. I ain't got time fo this shit. It's finals week.

So we agree on Epic Ski... but like I said, its not the place to go for anything specific on snowboarding.

TGR has great info but much of it would mean nothing to the average rider. Does it really benefit the 10 day a year guy to know the ins and outs of Le Grave? The "beta" on the backcountry for someone that will never earn a turn. The macro industry/resort stuff? Why does someone making one trip a year care?

Even at a resort info level, any discussion is centered around skiers (mostly) at a much different experience level than the masses. That what I meant with my question.

Does it hurt to read that sort of stuff? Of course not. Is it practical info that the flatlander going to a resort out west for his first time can do anything with? Not really. Its certainly not a place to ask questions (on anything) if you aren't already riding/skiing at a high level.

It has ceased to be productive in any way and just brings everybody down like that guy in the workplace who just bitches non stop anout everything and is a constant reminder of everything that sucks about the job.

Some people would rather focus on the things they like about a place, make some positive suggestions about how they think the sucky things could be improved and try to have an overall positive experience. Nothing in life is going to be perfect whether its a workplace or an online forum and nobody likes that guy who is constantly whining, bitching, pissing and moaning about everything. After awhile everybody in the workplace is praying the guy will quit or get fired just so they quit fucking hearing the guy bitch.

If Tarzan is that enamored with TGR, he should just stay there and quit visiting this forum. Or at the very least not come here and bitch non stop.

Additionally, I will say that it is considered bad form to come onto one forum, bitch about how shitty it is then suggest that people go to another forum. Do that shit on TGR and see how long you last. This is just another form of spamming and if I really was the asshole Tarzanman thinks I am I would totally be in my rights to ban his ass for spamming. I have no intention of doing so (yet) but just sayin.
I love these new smilies
