i dont know, like ive gotta a snowboarder friend who just switched to skiing, and he doesnt seem to appreciate the sport
he says poles are stupid and that powder is boring, not sure what im tryin to say here... just seems like he still has this whole snowboard mentalety
Agreed. More pow for us!
On that note, skiing passed snowboarding as the fastest growing winter sport.
not what i ment man, i usually ditch my poles in park too
he just doesnt appreciate skiing for all it is, all he wants to do is park, which is cool, as long as you can still enjoy backcrountry
i disagree, i actually would much rather see all skiers in the mountain, i much rather watch other skiers ride as well as much rather ski with other skiers. Im not sure why but skiing seems so much more styly as well as riding with other skiers helps progress my riding too.
On the other side, skiing kind of makes me feel unique, most of my friends snowboard and it kind makes me feel different, so i dont really mind things the way they are
i actually think there are way more snowboarders going in the backcountry nowdays. think about it, every snowboard part has a couple backcountry things, u almost never see a part thats exclusively park. sure there are still more oldschool skiiers heading into the backcountry, but most snowboarders ride park and bc, it seems like skiiers pick one or the other.
and as for more people, the more people spend money on this sport, the better everything can get. more parks, better movies, more comps, technology in gear will probably progress faster, i dont really see a downside
i like how it is now
i dont want it to turn into something like football where everyone at plays it on a team
