Here's another TGR doozy:

I bet that's you in the lower left, right? They alway get in over their heads. And why do they feel the need to put a copyright on their photos? What a bunch of posers... like any of them are going to get published. HA!
Oh you're good at tuning? Sick! That's awesome! You must be the man! And yup, that's defiantly me in the lower left, you got me good! And you're calling kids posers, they do get published. I don't see you dropping any pillows, so as far as everyone's concerned they have bigger balls than you. Sucks.

It's really quite simple...

This site is aimed towards an older, more racing-oriented person who also happens to ski occasionally. The members tend to be more uptight when talking about skiing than the two other main forums. Creativity and individuality are frowned upon. Bode Miller is God... but God forbid he has a good time partying rather than 'training.' The average member of this site would flame me for calling Bode by the name God and then referring to God while not meaning Bode later in the sentence. The average member would then go eat a granola bar, complain about the snow on their Beaver Creek driveway, and laugh at those who ski because it's enjoyable.

TGR is aimed towards skiers who live skiing, and let it become their lifestyle. They are more laid-back, but can be serious when it comes to issues such as avalanche education.

Newschoolers is for the skier that skis for fun and accepts individuality and freedom of expression's place in skiing. The average member is younger and less mature, but has a large passion for skiing. Most NS members ski anything that's available to them and aren't afraid of skiing's consequences. They embrace the new direction skiing has taken, which has also brought skiing's popularity back after the late 90's/early 2000's slump.

Hi Times!

Your first post here.

Signed up just to tell us who we are, I guess.

Thanks for explaining it to us.

Speaking for myself, you are right, I'm race oriented. Actually racing really wasn't that simple. You might call it a lifestyle. Then, I took a few years out to work, but soon I gave up a career where I made more in a day than many maggots make in a month, just to keep skiing.

And my father skied Alta in the moonlight in the 1940's. I still have his wood skis, take them out now and then, and can ski anything on them.

Oh, and I'm missing an ACL, and have been in avalanches.

WOOO WOOO how hard core!

You really don't lurk here much, do you?

A lot of the posts here "thinking" what the other site is all about, are making their own site look pretty stupid, that is a shame. It is all about skiing, does it really matter how, why or where you do it and find your stoke?

This thread is so important that Marmot has already named a softshell jacket after it. I just bought one on SAC. Marmot calls it the Moran.

Fun sucks.

You started the spelling lessons, with pole/poll by the way.

I would say racing and instrutional is more accurate. Keep in mind the number of PSIA instructors we have on Epic. Good technical skiing seems to be important here and that is a matter of personal preference. We maybe spend more time on the trail on average as opposed to the kids at TGR.

Those who live skiing tend to be younger. How old are you, Times. I lived skiing when I was younger. I have a family and a job and even some responsibility. I ski 3 days a week (during the winter) and skiing is a big priority for me.

As far as NS skiing anything that's available to them, first I doubt it and second, good for them. I have seen some of the TRs on TGR and they have my respect. I like the ones where no bragging is included.

Rather than judge the site, both TGR and Epic, I find it more usefull to judge the "post". I say, take what you like and leave the rest.
