Why skiers (sliders) are better than everyone else...

Recommended Posts

Without boarders the ski industry would have died or would not be as affordable as it is now.

I was banned from PugSki for making a joke about snowboarders not being good at chairlift chat.

I was pretty impressed last night when I got on the 6 with two high school females (keep your minds out of the gutter please!)

They actually initiated a conversation with an aging old man, uh, wait.  Hmm...  
I'm not a grandfather yet..  Where was I going with this?   Oh, and they kept the conversation going the entire lift ride!

Yes, I've had younger people, probably college age and a little older chat with me on the the lift. They're not all in their own little world, I guess. Not many teens. I guess that's cause I mainly rude during the day.

I just figure they rather not talk to an old man, so I keep my mouth shut.  But if they initiate conversation, I'll freely run my mouth.

Yup. I never initiate conversation. Some of them start and talk the entire way up. Too much Monster or Red Bull? I dunno.

I will initiate a conversation if it's just me and another person and gauge the interest in continuing the conversation from there.
If they're not into it, so be it.  Otherwise it makes the ride up go a bit faster.

Same; I say hello, and if they feel like talking then I'll happily chat,  and if not I keep to myself. I've had some really nice talks with younger people, including one lovely young boy who was deaf, but typed messages to me on his phone, so we went back and forth that way.

Wow just wow.  Snowboarders are usually shorter as their growth is stunted from starting to smoke cigarettes in 7th grade.

Wow I'm too nervous about dropping my phone off the lift.

Just get a $50 phone instead and ration your data so if you lose It no big deal. Then you can track your vertical, run count and speed just like me and post more details on the ski leaderboard.

It's still a big deal if you lose it..you have to go to the store and get a new phone..I'm on my phone more than most when I'm skiing I'd prefer to be off it unless I take pictures. In this day and age unlimited data is pretty standard.  I've always had unlimited data since 2009..also speed from ski apps is not accurate..

Trish over at Pug is NOT charmed by my sense of humor and has attacked me on the women-only forum as well.  All fair enough, I reckon. If you're going to joke around a lot, there will occasionally be stuff that doesn't land well and you have to accept Responsibility for that. I do think she assumed malice where it  wasn't at all evident, though, and resorted to a public shaming rather than beginning with a private conversation. It's for that that I won't forgive her.

I've actually only met and skied with Philpug once back when he lived in the Philly suburbs. Philpug was a skisnob and only skied in Vermont or out west and he occasionally would post on PASR. In conversation we discussed Pre skis and I said they were made in Park City Utah and Phil said I was wrong and I said if im right he had to ski a day at Blue mountain and he lost.   Phil had a blast at Blue skiing the bumps and spring conditions.  I was in Tahoe several years back and tried to meet up with Philpug but he blew me off.  

 

Tricia is midwestern she probably doesn't get sarcasm.

Rofl. That's funny but I'm typing this on an Android and those phones look nothing like the Android I have. My Android has lolligag or kitkat or whatever and the jitterbugs don't.
