I love both so much. Each type of skiing has their perks.

I used to be insane into racing and while I was doin it I had lots of fun, but you gotta get out of the gates sometimes and allow yourself to really enjoy skiing. I just got way to burnt out after awhile

Yeah, I used to be into racing a little bit. Then I tried freeskiing. I find that you have the ability to express yourself through your style more in the parks and you can just have generally more fun.

To each his own though

not thats its a big turnoff or that i worry about it much, it seems like ALL snowboarders at my local mountain just have MAJOR beef with the skiiers. idk what their problem is but alot of them act like dicks to skiiers. like when i first started, people told me to be careful going down stairs in my boots because snowboarders would laugh at and make fun of skiiers who fell down the stairs, EVEN ****ING 5 or 8 year olds. i almost got into a fight with an 40 YEAR OLD MAN who was snowboarding because i was learning how to ski and he stopped right in front of me on the hill and i narrowly clipped the edge of his board. i said sorry and he would just not drop it, he kept yelling at me while we were in line so everyone around us was just expecting something to happen.

What I have found is it's usually the fags who think they're good at snowboarding but really aren't that are dicks to skiers. Usually the better guys understand that we're there for the common love of the mountain. But then you'll get those people who are just dicks. I totally know what you're saying.

i dont hate snowboarders, i have a few friends who snowboard. but honestly there are a few people i have seen snowboarding that have less than desirable attitudes. and a ton of people try to snowboard just because it is the "cool" thing to do.

i've run across many people on the mountain, both skiers and snowboarders, that are dicks. Usually they are the gapers and squids, but thats a whole other story.

There's always going to be dicks on the mountain, both skiiers and snowboarders. From what I've seen though, the majority, if not 99% of them are snowboarders. I don't have any problems with them, but I always get comments from snowboarders about how gay skiing is. I just laugh at them, and ask them why they hate skiiers. The best answer I've gotten was that our jackets and pants "are too old and too tight." I swear to god I had a ~17 year old kid say that to me. What made it even funnier was that he couldn't even get off the lift without falling over. Total *******.

I just lol'd at him and said if he cared so much about fashion he should become a model. He then left, and said "******" under his breath. I guess he doesn't know skiiers can hear, too.

Hell, I can snowboard too. Granted, I'm much better at skiing, but I can still snowboard. The main reason I ski always now is the fact that my feet are too damn big to fit on a snowboard.

If you've ever tried racing I think you'd like it. I absolutely love it. I hate wearing the suit, but you get used to it. Running gates is so ****ing fun.

I can snowboard and ski. I'm a better skiier, but on an average day, I'm probably better than 80% of the people on the mountain at snowboarding.

Please please please please please don't call yourself a "production" or any sort of company It makes you look so noobish.

Skiing was pretty good though, just try and keep your hands down or throw a smooth grab in there when you spin. (Assuming that was you, lol)
