what is skiing? how should a skier act and look? (before you go any further - just beware that this is yet another rant by me about skiing and not hating eachother)
skiing is just about as diverse as canada... it's almost (if not) impossible to define what skiing means and who a skier is.
people are saying that we should be like skiers, not snowboarders... ...people are saying that skiers should act like skiers, not try and act all 'ghetto'. well - how should a skier act?
other than saying that skiing is about the freedom of being outside you and your skis, blah blah blah is a given... but if you look deeper into skiing - what is it? it's everything from inner city kids taking a trip up to the mountain and falling all day in their jeans with the help of some charity group, it's a bunch of old guys who stick to groomers and think that everything bad is those damn teenage punk snowboarders fault, than you got the people who frequent this site - which are so diverse on their own that i'm not going to get into it.
i've said this so many times that i'm sure all of you are sick of reading it in my threads/posts, but i'm gonna say it again - don't be a hater towards this sport or the people in it (weather they are some ignorant old dude or a guy in baggy clothes and a du-rag)... if you really like skiing - just go skiing and don't worry about what the dude hitting the jump ahead of you is wearing... as mt_hed said (although i am using his words against him) - the ski hill is the furthest thing away from the ghetto... so there's no reason to hate on eachother for no reason... we're all on the hill for the same reason (pick up chicks... obviously).
sorry for boring you...
come back pikachu
