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



The Milkman has the most fun


But surely if the snowboarder is going at a more faster rate the snowboader should be aloud to overtake, but not barge simply walk around you.

And Skiier's dont understand how annoying it is when they go over your snowboard and just stare at you.

Sitting down is not actually uncomfortable. You should try it sometime. oh wait, you can't really sit down wearing skis can you? and getting up again - well thats always a laugh - really funny if you don't have your walking sticks.




i like to sneak up behind sitting skiers and push them over.. its the same if you turn a turtle on its back and watch it try to get up. Arms and legs everywhere...


Well thats interesting because the game of skittles can be adapted into a game of ski-turtles by crashing into a line of skiers at a drag lift queue. They do expect us to crash into them afterall...

Anyway the rules:

1. get your mates to sit around drinking relentless nearby (or red bull if you are over 25)

2. turn your ipod up loud enough that EVERYONE can hear it.

3. panel towards the lift queue...

4. Make to arrive in style by getting on your toeside edge and arriving arse first.

5. Slightly misjudge it (don't be too obvious) and collide with the end skier.

6. Apologise profusely so no one will know you are playing ski-turtles.

Points are awarded according to how many skiers fall over domino style. Style points are awarded if you get an entire family group, if someone yells at you or if anyone in the vicinity mentions the word "hooligan"

DISCLAIMER - In case any young impressionable people are reading this, its a joke. Ski-turtles is only considered a legitimate competitive sport in france where rude inconsiderate behaviour in lift queues is expected at all times smiling smiley

the heavy bindings and the walking sticks you lot need to stay upright
Nordic skiing is different though. thats how skis are supposed to be used





As a result of boarders not having this essential peice of kit they fall over at every turn smiling smiley

I could write a book about things i hate about boarders in general, like how they stop in the middle of the run in large groups as if im supposed to jump over them.
How they fall off lifts all the time
How they have little respect to skiers
How they barge in front
How they think they can race a skier, and fail grinning smiley
I could go on

All this is in general terms of course, you do occasionally bump into some good ones

Totally agree, dont even need to be at the beach. Heck cant even go back to where I grew up and learnt to surf nowadays without being considered as a non local. Kids of today. Now there a new thread for us. Kids just dont understand!!!

...How to stop on a relatively narrow run.

This is the one and only thing that really grinds my gears about boarders, (risking sounding like CML here a bit) not only is it dangerous to themselves and anyone coming down the limited piste but it is also extremely frustrating having to go completely off the line you were following.

A skier told them to shift it just before i took this photo so you dont get the full effect but what more there was a little unused snowy patch at the side of the run they could have sat in, but instead they chose a very busy piste.


To be fair a few of them you can see are right in at the edge, but the others are way out.

It was busy i can tell you that, at some points you had to really go slow, sometomes stopping coming down the gun barrel. It was constantly on/off though. Still, my point stands smiling smiley
