I've snowboarded for 10 years and no new really awesome girls have come in for about 5 of those 10. This was only my second year skiing, and I've only seen a handful of girls on the freestyle skiing board.
Those girls kill it, and even though they aren't out there throwing what you dudes do, they are out there still trying stuff. And I can totally opt for that at my mountain where there are quite a few girl shredders who kill it. You have to think about how us women think vs. you dudes, too. We're a little bit safer and think of consequences more than you guys. It's just our instincts.
All-in-all, I think dudes should just treat women equally on the mountain. It shouldn't really matter because like I said, we're all doing something we love. I've got ridiculed before in real life, who does that? If we make one mistake, we're thrown more into the light then you guys are. It really sucks.
