Snowboarders just don't understand !!!
Date Posted: 20.35hrs on Mon 13 Dec 10
I hate it when snowboarders barge past me on the way from the carpark to the ticket office and up the steps, they have no regard for how difficult it is to walk in my ski boots while carring my skis and poles and backpack

everyone should walk slowly behind the skier infront in an orderly manner, we all pay the same amount and have the same rights to the mountain

Now I understand - boarders boots are designed for walking, not boarding, that explains a lot.

Nah its not the boots, its from all the incest'ual rodgering between skiers and one-pieces that gives them that waddle...

Just remember... under every skiers two piece is a lycra one piece, waiting to be discovered.

I think they do understand.

They take one look at the orthopedic ankle braces that serve as boots, the heavy bindings and the walking sticks you lot need to stay upright and they thank the mountain they learned to snowboard instead :p

Nordic skiing is different though. thats how skis are supposed to be used smiling smiley

Actually i have never tried alpine skiing so this is just banter. it does look uncomfortable and a lott of faff though.

So does sitting on your arse, doing up bindings every run, Probably gives you piles.

Or having to get a pull from a friendly skier on the flat bits!!!

the main reason to board is so you don't have to tell your parents you are a skier

I have a Pocket Ski Sling. You'd be amazed the difference it makes carrying your skis about (I also ski with a backpack). I also have cat tracks for my boots, which are great when it's icy. If i'm feeling sufficiently enthusiastic I can even overtake the boarders when walking to the ticket office (with associated bemused looks from the boarders who wonder how it is possible for a skier to move faster than them).
