just FYI in the desert the ratio is about 90:10 in favour of bourders but i have been working on that and have got it down to about 60:40. We need some of you skiiers to come over and hit up the indoor slope with me. Eddie wall was here the other day (snowboarder) and they made an ice structure for him and built him new features and gave him free shit. So basically as long as you are decent you could try and claim to be pro as nobody here really has a clue about the skiing scence and you will get free shit
bindings are for pussies
The length of your ski poles is inversely proportional to the length of your t-shirt.
My friends can't figure out why i'm not on level 2 and still on level 1 when I have a level 1 shirt on
It's both, but there's only a lot of snowboarders just cuz that's the cool thing to do over there apparently.. But the skiers are definately more experienced and advanced compared to the boarders.. I havnt seen it first hand but I talked to my cousin who races all over Europe about this
in germany and austria there are mainly boarders due to boarders being the first park-makers. but momentarily there are like 40% boarders and 60% skiers because all the youngsters ride skis and no boards.
Like you guys we're back to skiing since the day we tried fat twins skis (and at this time fat was like 80 underfoot). Unfortunately (for them) some people still did not try yet.
More seriously the ratio should be 60 skiers / 40 snbs because of the old gapers. Depends of the resort and the conditions. But if you take only people between 10 and 25 there is def more snowboarders but but also def more people switching from snowboarding TO skiing than the opposite.
