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.
