For the sake of all that is holy, please teach them to stay in control, how to bail in a controlled manner if they lose control and that the SKIER/BOARDER DOWNHILL OF THEM HAS THE RIGHT OF WAY!

Been skiing for 25yrs and it seems mountain etiquette is not taught these days. My mother has been run over from behind by multiple boarders who then yell at her like it's her fault.

Its not boarders that are the problem. Its idiots and humans in general. Skiers do it too. Boarders just piss me off because the push all the snow off the mountain (east coaster here). People are act exactly the same on the road. It doesnt matter if you are driving a Jeep or a Ferrari.

Former skier and current snowboard instructor here and believe me skiers push more snow. Ever see snowboarders create moguls? dosent happen. The snow gets pushed around on the east coast due to it getting warm during the day then freezing at night creating layers of ice. The groomers only till down about 6 inches and that 6 inches gets pushed off ice pretty easily.

But you are right about jackasses they are everywhere in every sport in every walk of life... What can you do?

Where the hell did this come to think I am not teaching my kids the etiquette????? I have had my kids in ski/boarding lessons since the age of 3! My now 7 year old is skiing at a level 6 all-mountain group already with kids 14 to 16 year olds due to his ability! He enjoys POW and climbing to the peaks & shredding up the glades! He his in full control and knows the rules of skiing and boarding! My 9 year old daughter is the same, in control and enjoys shredding up the back-country on her board.

I get sick of some people on the ski slopes telling me I shouldn't be taking my small kids up to the peaks or much steeper terrain or hitting double black diamond, and they believe I am doing my kids a disfavor thinking they don't have the ability to ski/board the slopes...guess what??? I love it when my kids out perform their asses on the hill!

Totally agree, boarders/skiers, adult & kids you are going to meet idiots on the hill.

To say snowboarders push the snow off the hill is ridiculous. Think of it this way. Skiers have 2 skis, and 2 sets of edges scraping the snow. A snowboarder has only one set of edges scraping the snow.
As far as the downhill skier/boarder having the right of way, this is great, until the downhill skier suddenly and unexpectedly changes direction. An easy way to avoid this is for people to not make huge gs style turns on narrow runs.
Generally, its older skiers that make statements claiming snowboarders cause all the problems on the mountain. The problem is more that too many kids these days are raised with no respect for anyone, and less of a skier vs. snowboarder thing.

By the way, I used to ski, but I've been snowboarding for over 20 years now. I remember when snowboarders either were'nt allowed on most ski hills or were only allowed on a run or two. Boy how things have changed.

Didn't a few real famous people die on the mountain quiet a few years ago? They were both doing stupid shit, and both lost their lives. And guess what, they were on Ski's... There are idiots on both sides of the fence.

She was 4, had a lesson the year before but we had to lie about her age to get her in. This year should tell whether she really likes it or not. Then we'll switch her over to a board.

Snowboarder here (12 years) and glad to be back on the slopes after living in Florida for 9 years.

Here are some shots of the weekend after Halloween at Sunday River, Maine this year. 2 trails open to advance early season peeps. The trail that came to the bottom of the mountain was optional and a huge ice waterfall. I opted for the scenic foliage chair ride route. The conditions were great and ever changing throughout the day!

Hey Revy.... A few buddies and I are considering Whistler for this year's trip. Are you familiar? Where's the best place to stay? I'm thinking that we should fly into Seattle and rent a car to cross the border (if that's possible) or should we try to fly directly into Vancouver?

MSU....Yes I am familiar with the skihill! However, places to stay I don't really know. Talk with (Rubichronic) - a few post up in this thread! Ron is from Whistler and I am sure he will be more helpful for places to stay!

You should give Revelstoke Mountain Resort a shot sometime in the future...Fly into Kelowna and drive about 2 hrs, and it will give you the highest Vertical in North America and has Cat-skiiing and Heliskiing at the resort! Just as challenging if not more so then Whistler with some epic POW!

Sorry if I gave the impression that I was accusing you of not teaching them right. It was more a general request. When I was young I was much like your kids, out-skiing most everyone around and in control. My statement was more a general observation of skiing/boarding these days. It would be the same as asking a parent with a kid who just turned 16 to please teach them not to use a cell phone while driving. Did not mean for it to turn into an attack on your parenting skills. Again, if it came across that way, I sincerely apologize.

I also didn't mean to come across as anti-boarder sorry for that. I have a board sitting next to my skis. I'm only anti-out of control people. At 33 I wouldn't consider myself old.

Whistler is awesome. Hands down. I've gone out there three times & stayed in different places each time. Where to stay depends on the atmosphere you're looking for, I stayed on Blackcomb ('upper village' i think) which was pretty quiet & seem to remember whistler village had more of the party atmosphere. Blackcomb had more ski in/ski out places I think. It's been a few years tho since I've gone.
Where are u flying from? We drove from Detroit to Windsor & flew from there to Vancouver (via Toronto) It was quite a bit cheaper to do it that way instead of directly from the US. From Vancouver we took a bus up to whistler. Didn't really need a car once we were there. Bus tickets are pretty cheap too. have fun if u guys end up going there! it's awesome. hit me up if u want & I'll help if I can

Keep in mind once you get here you don't need a car. If it's cheaper to fly to Seattle and rent a car do it, but keep in mind some hotels charge extra for parking as well. I think bus tickets from Vancouver are about 20 bucks one way. You'd have to take a shuttle ($12 i think) from the airport to the bus station.
For places to stay, consider what kind of atmosphere you want. If you don't want to hear the night time rowdiness, ask for a room that doesn't face into the main village. It's a pedestrian village, and when all the bars let out it can get pretty loud. Room prices vary, but if you can try to avoid holidays or special events. You can also probly get lift tickets worked in to some kind of deal with your rooms.

Also, like RevyJK08 said, I've heard great things about Revelstoke. Steeper, deeper, and gnarlier from what I've been told. It might be worth considering as well.
If you make it out here, we should go for some wings and beers, and maybe some pow runs (i love to try and scare the shit out of flatlanders) to depending on my work schedule.

oh ya, 73cm in the last 24hrs, calling for another 30 to 50cm tonight, and more on the way. Mountains been open for 5 days and the base is around 150cms I think. We are skiing to the valley already, but it's still pretty boney up there!

Been skiing since I was 6... was president of the ski team for the USCSA for 4 years at school, and this sport/winter season is the main reason why i bought my jeep...

pics are from killington this past january (just kidding, they're too big to post, will resize).

being a die-hard skier on the east coast sucks, my dreams are of growing up (yeah, so what, I'm 30 now) and moving out west...

Thanks for the tips chronic! The party atmosphere definitely won't bother us. That is why we are considering Whistler in the first place .

Ski in/out is a must. Checking flights to Seattle and Vancouver, it seems that the Seattle route is cheaper even when renting a vehicle. When it gets closer to the time to start planning I'll hit you up for some more specific advice, if that's alright.

Edit: lol. It'll be hard to scare me. I've been skiing since I was just a wee little ladd.

if you don't mind the party, than aim to stay in Whistler Village. Tell whoever is helping you book your room that. Main Village. The Pan Pacific is the hotel at the bottom of two gondolas. One brings you up Whistler Mtn., and one brings you up Blackcomb Mtn. If you got the cash, that is the ultimate ski in ski out, even if you have to walk a hundred steps or so. Hit me up when you get closer to your holiday, i'll help you any way i can. Probly just means helping with your hotel location, and showing you some secret spots. Same goes for anyone reading this. I love showing people around the mountains, and i've been here long enough now that i can show you places that aren't on the trail maps! hit me up for sure!
