Eat a Dick Hippy...

I know that some of you reading this are probably loyal Alta lovers, but I've got a bone to pick with some of your fellow skiers "over there".  What the fuck is their problem with snowboarders?  I mean seriously, in my opinion, it doesn't matter what you ride, you can still be a douchebag.  
You may or may not be familiar with the rope line separating Alta and Snowbird on the Baldy shoulder.  If you hike baldy from the Bird and traverse all the way out to the line there is a super fun series of windlips that gets formed right along the rope line.  When you ride these windlips sometimes you're on Bird ground, sometimes you're on Alta ground.  Now, just because I might happen to be over that line for minute doesn't mean I'm there to plunder all your precious powder, I'm gonna drop back into the Bird.  So that being said, why do my friends have to hear it from crusty, elitist skiers every time a snowboard happens to poke over the line?  Relax.  Smoke a doobie brother.  Get some patchouli aroma therapy going.  I don't care what it is, just do something and shut the fuck up.
I think it may be time for our Little Cottonwood neighbors to wake up and smell the 21st century.  I mean are you really that insecure with your ability to have fun that you need to clamp down on mine?
Eat a dick hippy.

Wish I had some wisdom for you on this one, Pouch. As one of your two-planker, stuck in the 80's telemarking friends, I've got nothing but contempt for anti-snowbarding Altoids. What a bunch of dicks!

I am with you Pouch, Fuck Alta. My family is going to poach that place this winter, maybe you should join us. Lets see ski patrol act like assholes to my little kids for snowboarding. They allow a mono ski (worst snow sliding invention ever) but not snowboards?

Ah Tony, you know I didn't have you or any of the other Alta shreds I know in mind when I penned this one. You guys are down, I know that you feel the same way I do; a tool is a tool no matter what's on their feet. But there is for sure a contingent of intolerant, close-minded throwbacks. Time to send their egos back to humility school....

they need to remember one important thing.... this is all forestry land.. we can be on the "other side of the rope" anytime and for as long as we like.......
im over it... next time im enjoying my time over on the ridge and someone yells at me like a throwback racist... im socking them.
the few skiers the 3 of us passed the other day while traversing out for some turns, are lucky to have not received a 20mph fist to nose.. honestly.
i was with 2 friends from france this day.. they were already kind of tripping on my description and hatred of the current state of things... then, 5 minutes later, they experienced it for themselves..
