Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Getting outnumbered and abused in some thread? Post that thread URL here and your snowboard brethren can be all over it, restoring the balance in the greatest debate since chickens and eggs, board or ski?

Providing that thread isn't in apres zone, I'm scared of there.

Are you a closet skier and just scared to admit to aspiriring to a sport that requires a little effort to be good at?

Lizzard, who are you calling an "old Fart"? Why would I want to spend precious time learning to do something when I can get all over the mountain quite happily already? Even the flat & uphill bits where you snowboarders see to get rather, err, stuck.

You don't see many snowboarders touring do you? Ah, you can't get uphill. Oh. Never mind, you can admire my tracks.

My answer is "not yet is hasn't". I'm still waiting. But learning something new is definitely good for keeping your brain younger and flexible, even if it makes your bum sore. And it's good for expert skiers to be reminded just how different even the easiest slopes look when you're a beginner. Plus, it's fun.

Hurtle, no, amazingly enough! One of them did smack his hand on a rail and had to have it x-rayed, but the only resulting damage was that I had to do his lunchtime plonge shift while he went to the doctor.

I guess these two posts explain why there's a rivalry rolling eyes


David - the question isn't "why would you bother", it's "why is it bad just because you don't want to do it?". That kind of attitude is quite possibly why skiiers get called "old farts" Wink - fwiw, I don't snowboard at all, and don't intend to try because personally I'm happy with skiing.

powhound - pretty sure you'll find skiiers are fine in the deep stuff.

I guess I'm lucky enough to be able to not care less what the people I'm riding with strap to their feet (excluding blades Wink).

Seems like it's just a throwback from back in the day when skiing was reserved for rich people and skiiers had "their" slopes "invaded" by snowboards. I guess it'll die out in a generation or so... It does cut both ways though - I was watching a snowboard movie with my housemate a couple of nights ago and there was a section with a "gangsta" boarder going around spraying skiiers and shooting off and a section of skiiers crashing.

I guess whatever you choose to slide on though, there'll always be arseh*les in the world Smile

DaveC, Oi. I never said it was bad. What attitude?

It's that Lizzard causing trouble again.

Why would I want to do it though. Never seen (and I've done quite a lot of seeing) anyone do anything on a board that I can do on skis (except ride sideways and why would I want to be able to do that...)

Why are the skiers in the snowboarding section anyway ???? Is it the yearning to be with the 'in' crowd, mixing with the cool people?
