I agree. The younger generation of skiers and snowboarders are stoked on others going out ripping and having fun.

I've seen enough douchy behavior from boarders that I will never ever get along with them. Then again, I've seen it from plenty of hot-dogging young skiers too, so maybe it's an age thing.

I've seen plenty of older skiers act like self entitled assholes. Maybe it's just a people thing.

 My latest trip to Appalachian Ski Mountain with some 6 to 10 year old beginners was cut short,

not by me but by my young guests, because of the very bad language the kids in the park were using. They didn't want to be around such behavior. It seemed like there was some contest going on to see who could use the f*** and m*f* the most times while making any comment.

Maybe it's an eastern states thing?

 

People behave weird when on the ski hill.

I've decided, after cursing them for a couple of decades,  that them gol durned whippersnappers on snowboards arent't the most annoying demographic on the mountains any more. They more or less confined themselves to the terrain parks and leave the rest of the place to us old farts. 

 

The demographic that has far outstripped them on the annoyance scale are the ski racing rugrats. When they're not on their courses, they're straightlining at Mach Zillion from whereever it is is that they are at the moment to whereever it is they want to be next  with a singular disregard for anything that may be in or around their trajectory,  oblivious to the fact that, unlike on course, other things are moving on the slopes, the bravado that whatever it is that is in their way can be dealt with like a slalom gate, a sense of entitlement fostered by indulgent parental units that would put pagent moms to shame, and stirred with the ignorance of consequences borne of never actually having hit something or somebody hard.....yet.  

 

Never thought I'd say it, but I'll take the snowboarders over all the  little ski race  f*****s any day.

You must have read my mind. On Hood they also cut lines to be with their friends, and click out of their ski's wherever they feel like and just leave their ski's laying in everyone's way.

Naww, that wasn't actually cussing.   They were just speaking in "FrenchSwiss".
