Literally, there are now 2x the amount there were last year. Used to be just me, my bro + my 2 friends, local pro kirbstopper and another dude whose name I don't remember(I wanna say Matt..). Now there's at least 12 on the hill at any point. Sure that's not a lot but it's the freaking prairies, and more freeskiers is always nice to see as opposed to a hill swarming with snowboarders.
Has anyone else witnessed this growth at their hill?

what ive noticed is an increased # of kids dropping bank on the gear, but cant 270 off a rail. its the same kids who you wouldnt have noticed before, but now everyone seems to think that buying in to the materialistic aspect of skiing will help you fit in.

The freeskiing scene at PC is pretty big now. Theres an equal if not larger amount of skiers at PC then there are snowboarders. Its all love though. We both skiers and snowboarders enjoy watching eachother throw down.

I dont think that kids buying the newest stash when they dont have the skills is a bad idea - any sale for saga/FD/LDC is still giving them more money and will allow more advertising etc to be done for the next year, helping the sport. Honestly, the only way freeskiing will advance is to teach the new kids how to slide rails and hit jumps, not to shun them and tell them they shouldnt have the clothes they are wearing.
tell them to come to my mountain, we are lucky to have 3 on the hill at once. but we always have about 2 good boarders and 50 gaper boarders wearing their fressh jersey shore shirts with under armor sleeves and straight airin sides of jumps..o wait nvm we just have gapers and 5 people who can ride
All these kids in these here bright colors look like a bunch of skittles on the mountain today. P. Rod.

ugh fuck wachusett. i skied there 4 days a week last year, so many snowboarders its ridiculous. park is insane crowded

then again, they are kinda slutty, but i dont look at it that way, more like an opportunity that you need to put forth minimal effort to gain the full advantage of
