Ha ha!! I usually embarrass myself daily so I am used to it
I find that almost as a rule - only the way overdone skiers/boarders get butt hurt when jokin around about the what is best. Most of us can see it for what it is - just some overdone dialog between the camps that makes for good jokes and fun...
After skiing and racing as a child for 5-6 years I jumped on a snowboard about 25 years ago and have never looked back. Added in the sled for total BC freedom 12 years ago and am fortunate enough to live in a spot where I can get to new untouched zones whenever I choose.
Also I find that the best way to truly test any person's BC skill set is by the time tested "powder 8"
... Keep checkin back here as there will be the biggest powder 8 comp ever held in Central Colorado later this year. So Harv, Ken, and the rest of you salider boys had better be workin on your skills caus soon it will be on like Donkey Kong!!
The right skier will have a spot in my BC crew any day of the week for me it is about the person as I dont really give a shit if they are on a board or ski's.. With that said it is still fun to poke a bit of fun at my skier friends
