Dont hate Texas skiers, we're here to help.

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 

 

 I know that many in Colorado and most likely California and Utah dislike the Texas skier and their brash attitude, accent, use of language(or lack thereof), dress(or lack thereof) on and off the slopes and many other things, but there's no need to anymore as I now associate all Texas skiers with the:

 

Colorado, Utah, California Recovery Plan(or CUCRP). Yes, Texas skiers dump all sorts of junk on your hills and many have a devil may care addititude; but we also dump a lot of our oil money in your states. In this recovering economy, you should welcome every Texan as a fat wallet you're willing to empty. Sometimes, you gotta take some bad to get the goods. 

 

So, next time someone asks why you don't serve Lonestar here; don't yell back because its awful and Texans wouldn't know a good beer if you gave it to them; suggest a Breckenridge beer and say to your buddy; that's 6 more bucks from Texas to our state.

 

(Poster's note: This thread was meant to show sarcasm of the typical Texas skier and typical hate of them. Those of you that just cant stand certain stereotypes on your favorite hill, please take it in stride. Just trying to help keep the board entertaining.)

Texas is OK, but I thought this was funny.

Try spending time living among the people of SLC--then you will truly know hell.

 

Fortunately people from TX can't ski well enough to handle much outside of CO.

Meh, I'll be back.....

I thought the locals were pretty nice.

You forgot to add New Mexico to your list

 

You are absolutely right though, a lot of people here hate them but they are the ones that keep the lifts running. The local economy is not big enough for that. Besides, most of the ones I chatted with on the lifts were a lot of fun, I usually give them tips of where to go and whatnot.

 

And the greatest thing is that most of them just stay on the groomers or the low-angle slopes, so even on a really busy day the good stuff is empty.

 

So, here's to Texans!

There are only two types of skiers that piss me off. Those that judge you by the state that you are from... and Texans! 

post #8 of 34

We love tourists in Montana.  Come, spend lots of money.  Have a great time.  Then go home.  Don't buy a place here.  Don't retire here.  Just visit, spend money and leave.   We will be very nice to you if you promise not to stay.

Unless you like to hike up and then ski/ride down, which certainly might be the case, YER ATTITUDE JES PLAIN DON'T MAKE NO SENSE.

At least they give you guys bright plates to warn us to stay away.

How many folks saw the ABC special where they sent actors pretending to be Texas tourists to France?  They were louder than loud, pretty rude, but friendly at the same time.  The best part was they wore shirts that said "Paris Texas" on the front and "Bush 2008" on the back

 

I lived in Texas during most of the 90s.  Good fishing, good NFL team, good NHL team moving my North Stars down from MN was pretty cool, decent club scene.  I'd have traded all that for great skiing anyday. 

 

Here in NC we've got all that plus decent skiing  and awesome beaches within 3 hours.  The probelm here is all the damned people from TN,. SC, and especially GA

Did I read  "Yardsale !" and "Free stuff" in that ?   

 

I also heard Lonestar had to be imported(here).  We can't afford imports, so it's local brew, which means small batches often brewed in the hills near those "other" patches. We'll sell ya what we got, just come on down, over, around. However ya gotta get here, just bring yer money honey.

Of course not.  I'll ski with anyone and everyone from anywhere that loves skiing.  Even Maggots

Ask the next Texan you meet on the chairlift "say, pardner, when ya'll get divorced in Texas are you still cousins?"

ah man, and here I thought prevailing Utah resident philosophy was : know where you & who came from,  where predecessors came from for the past umteen centuries, then work towards utlimately leaving utah, but making sure you leave lots in utah when you leave.  Ah, got it. There will be no room in utah by the time you are done.

 

Pretty sure I never said any of this.  Musta read it or heard it somewhere.  Just can't be true ! 

post #18 of 34

I can flat out guarantee there is a state where the average citizen hates Texans more than all the Rocky Mountain states combined...

You gotta love Texans

 

Texas tourist at Steamboat to bartender at the thunderhead lodge....

 

"I saw a big ol' elk today,  What altitude do they change from deer to elk?" 

post #20 of 34

Someone posted in a previous Texans thread a quote that went something like this:

 

Instructor:   "What are your goals for skiing this season?"

 

Texan:  "I wanna get me some of them double enders and go play in that there trick ditch"

 

Let me know if you need that translated...

Amen. Always love it when local folks go on about hating tourists. Guess you must like to to hike for your turns, cuz that's about what you'd have left when all the destination resorts became local resorts, followed by resort bankruptcy, followed by 3/4 of what's left in town drying up, followed by no jobs for the most of the locals who hate the tourists...

Did you hang around in Deep Ellum?
 

My friends have told me that it's cycled through being an "exclusive", too expensive rich folks hangout to being pretty dead now...probably ripe for starting to develop into a place where you could see some really interesting bands again, like it was when I lived there ('87-'91). My favorite club was Trees, followed by Clearview.

It was quite a shift to leave my softball games in Garland on Friday nights and head down to Deep Ellum to meet friends, after a change of clothes. I enjoyed that kind of "delta culture" in Dallas. Our team was sponsored by a redneck bar that we really enjoyed, but it always felt like a really vicious fight might break out at any second.

Went there from time to time, especially during OU Texas weekends.  I've been to Trees a few times.  On a whim I had a Friend in from out of town and we parked and were walking around trying to decide which club to go in.  On a pure whim we went in Club Dada.  Edie Brickel showed up and played a set for a charity fundraiser they were having.  It wasn't advertised at all.  I'm not a big Edie Brickel fan, but it was kinda cool to see a big arena performer at a club that size.  I like all types of music and played a few clubs myself in those days.

 

 

Oh and the Texan meant twin tips (double enders) in the half pipe (trick ditch)

Do you want me to move the 2010 EpicSki Gathering from Utah next year? (I think I'm still technically allowed to do that)

Any event that would invite all of the wanabee skiers on this website can be moved from Utah, (and technically I don't care)  All i'm saying is that as a local all of these tourists get in the way, you wouldn't understand because you are in fact... a tourist, so come to Utah with your Volkl Ac4 's and spend money and try to ski our snow, but a true skier doesn't care that texans or californians spend money at our resorts... Many resorts and even skiers have seem to lost track of whats important...

post #27 of 34

Hay, not all of us are lucky enough to live near the sport we LOVE.  I'm now forced to live in Chicago where the locals tell me WI has good skiing...Really, I call them moguls not mountains.  Forget the state someone is from, some of us just have to travel to get there and no matter what we're there because we love the sport.  Just please keep the a_sholes off the mountain.

Did you ever stop to think; if not for the tourist, there would be no resort.

You have proven my point, so have the resorts in Park City, they are closing a week from Sunday with a 100 inch base.... Resorts aren't making money? Shut the lifts down... Whatever happened to pleasing the locals? I mean really, this is two straight years and I'm forced to tour exclusively when the lifts could easily be open... Skiing isn't about the tourism, or money, or these high priced resorts with ridiculous ticket prices and huge real estate projects... Thats what seperates a local from a tourist...
