Why The Segregation? | UNITED STATES, CALIFORNIA | 11/13/2008, by powderjunky
Poking around for backcountry skiing info in a new area, I would commonly start my prodding with, "Excuse me, do you backcountry ski?" With more often than not the response being, "Uh, no, I snowboard." Each time I was flabbergasted quicker than Sara Palin when asked about an exit strategy.
Back home in Jackson, WY there is no distinction between snowboarder or skier. We are all crazy, powder-hungry mongoloids. If said mongoloid asks another mongoloid if they went snowboarding, even though the latter was "technically" on skis, the reply would more often than not be, "yeah, and it was freggin sick-gnar pow in the whiteroom!" and vice-versa.
The lame vibes emitted from these elitist were worse than cancer from an iphone......
So why are people still hanging on to the segregated ways of yore. We all love snow, and if I had enough money, I would telemark, alpine, snowboard, snowmobile, make snow angels, snow blow, and eat cherry coke flavored snow cones. In fact, if it has the word snow in it, it is probably something I'm into.
So lets drop the hate faster than the stock market and learn to get along. And remember we are ALL just a bunch of crazy, powder-hungry mongoloids who get their jollies from riding inanimate planks on frozen H2O.
ps- I wish i had outfits like the fellas in the picture.
