      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Even from 1200 miles away, my "snow sense" has been going off the charts...I have not felt this way in 10 years.

Something big is afoot...

If my out of control premonitions are correct, it's going to be a good year to quit your job in November.

 

 

Well, I was half right....the bad half.

Most boarders suck, which is why everybody hates them. I have several very good boarder friends who I go up with often, and they are fun to watch. It's the shitheads that go sideways and remove all the snow from the hill that ruin it for everybody.

Hahaha...Lance, you're a moron. Nobody was complaing about decent boarders. It's the shitheads that insist that 2 days on the board are enough to scrape sideways down a steep run.

 

Josh, were you born with skis on? Does the word "snowplow" mean anything to you? Do you remember when you were learning? I understand your frustration. I have been skiing for like 16 years now and have been boarding for 3. It is frustrating (as a skier) to see boarders scrape down or just sit in the middle of a run. But you have to remember that some of these people are learning. Give them some slack. If you are on an intermediate or beginning run....gues what? There may be beginning or intermediate skier/boarders on that run. Just because your car can do 120mph does not mean you can drive 120mph through a school zone. At the same time I feel your pain. But I don't limit my frustration to boarders. If you are a beginner, stay off the blues and blacks. If you possess the skill sets to make your way down like a normal person on the blues and blacks, do it. Don't be some lazy ass sideways scraping, snow plowing butthole. If you are too tired to ski or board down, walk.

 

Besides if you think you have it rough, try doing both. I find myself getting in fights with myself all the time. Sometimes I will run over my own ski tips with my own board just to be a dick. Then I will hit myself with a ski pole. It is a sad sad thing.
