I'm glad you're aware of this. Should have just left it there. Instead, you felt the need to critique the technique or the path that these people have taken into our sport.
Thankfully, your opinion has zero bearing on whether or not these kids have fun when they go skiing. Who cares what they look like or how they got there; I'd rather see more people sharing the stoke that comes from strapping skis to their feet.
Skiing doesn't need sport wide mandatory lessons. It shouldn't all look the same. People love to do different things on skis, and if the park is what gets your jollies, that's wonderful. We don't need your jerkoff attitude to tell us how to go about skiing.
Technique for getting down the hill is unnecessary, but those kids you're hating on have way better technique in the fun-having department. You should probably ask them for a lesson.
