I prefer rideng skis to snowboarding and always will, but the snowboarding scene is so far beyond ours.
-The movies are better, check out Picture This, Apples & Oranges, Optimistic, Folllow Me Around if you haven't yet
-The riders are more well rounded. We have a handful of skiers who can shred the bc with style, there are more boarders who hit the competition, urban, park, and bc scene and kill them all with smooth style.
-When I ride with boarders, there are technine and holden kids riding together, they don't give a shit what the other one looks like, I've heard skiers rip on each other at Park City and Brighton all the time for what other kids are wearing
-There are several different outerwear/riding styles and they don't hate on each other near as much as skiers. In fact they can all be on display in one movie. If I see one more tight pants or G-steeze hate thread I'm gonna ban ns for awhile
-The magazines are sick, and they have at least 4 legit ones to chose from
-There is so much hate on this site it's rediculous, skiing is FUN, something this fun shouldn't make us act like a bunch of sniveling bitches as soon as you sit at a computer.
I know our scene is younger and we don't have the $$$ pumpming into the industry like snowboarding does, but I don't care, it's time to grow up a little faster.
