Replying to Sabotage Stupidity-MRG Poached
First off let me start with a claim: My dad and I got second and third chair on the single today at Mad River Glen. Fucking unreal! conditions. A ski patroller in the lodge was saying he has skied MRG for 30 years and has had few days like this one.
Second, on Saturday was the opening of the new single with a dedication ceremony. Miss Vermont 2007 and Miss Vermont like 1964 or something were both there to open the lift. Everyone knew that a bunch of snowboarders were going to poach, there was a Burton truck and a bus in the parking lot. (BTW, the Burton truck ended up getting plastered with MRG stickers).
After the ceremony before people began to ride about 30 snowboarder came bombing down in white one piecies which all said on the back "Mad River Glen, Poach it if You Can". Everyone was cheering and yelling and just really pumped about the poaching and yelling and cheering them on, it was nice, no negative attitude you would excpect. Mad River saw it coming and set up a table saw outside with a sign, Snowboard Tuning Station, and all the snowboarders walked around handing out doughnuts to the ski patrol. I was pumped the snowboarders and skiers were real respectful and hope these boarders win the 5,000.
