Oh and Ober needs to start a ski and snowboard club. I think people would join it even if they just go up there only a few times. It would be another attraction they could have.

Ober's problem is they cater to the fucking snow tubing tourist shitheads. I get it, they make an assload of money from it, but it sucks as a boarder/skiier.

There are a few clubs around the knoxville/maryville area, but the members tend to be 50-60 year old skiers who thumb their noses at boarders.

I don't think Ober needs a club, the people who are passionate about riding/skiing are gonna ride regardless of if they're in a club or not. What ober needs is to expand their trails and somehow convince mother nature to get colder and dump more snow.

Yea..skiing is like golf to me..well in groups. You always have those old men that think their a God at golf. You make one mistake and they laugh at you and make fun of you. In skiing its just like that. They may have started 2 years ago and they act like they have one gold medals at the Olympics. I can't stand those kind people. But anyways I know Memphis has a team and so does Huntsville, but guess what! all are old people who ski. No boarders. No young people in it I don't think..
But I guess your right about Ober. I'm just glad people are so attracted to it this deep in the south.
