Location: Last year Windells park lane, furthest down rope tow
Persons involved: My self, Dick Head Digger Derick
Situation: Windells has a rule that no skiing on the features from 12-12:30 and park crew fixes stuff. I am a firm believer in this rule for many logical reasons (let salt do its work, limit someone getting hurt who was working on landing, ect...) however this is something that not everyone is told. So people who aren't told, or just dont know will make runs threw and hit features. Understandably the park crew gets mad and sometimes will over react (toss rakes, call you a fucking ass hole, flip you off). I get all of that because it can be dangerous, but this was one times that a skier hating snowboarder went over board.
I made a small jump for my group (Windells didn't have a small jump that my group could hit....) and was teaching my kids how to pop. Dick Head Derick was raking a rail down hill of my group and a skier came by and hit the rail. Derick gets mad and turns up hill to me and starts going off. "What the fuck is your problem you fag skier. Control your dumb fucking skier kids. Skiers are fucking ass hole fags ect..." right in front of my campers. I explained to him that it wasn't my kid and all of them are right behind me hitting a jump that I made because your too fucking lazy.
We started both yelling at each other for a bit (in front of campers) and ended up with our head coach intervening. When asked what the problem was I explained it what happened in and more or less it was resolved. However the thing that fucking made me hate this kinda snowboarder was when he was asked what the problem was all he said was, "I fucking hate skiers". Not, "shit i didn't know it wasn't one of his campers", or "shit I lost it for a min my bad". It was "I fucking hate skiers".
Anther great example of ass hole snowboarders was my friend skateboarding at the Windells employee housing and getting heckled for having a tall tee. Basically calling him a, "tall tee skier fag".
Some snowboarders are so ignorant and insecure that they really think they are cool. Spite the fact that they are not cool. Nothing is cool about a homogeneous. elitist sport, that can only be done in limited areas around the world, and has stolen almost all its tricks, terms, style, along with culture by a "cool" sport called skateboarding.
