So I am from Canada eh! Where I am from people are chill, nobody really gets on anyone’s case for living their lives. Creativity, difference, and originality is what we as Canadians respect and honour. I admit we all need to prostitute our bodies and brains out in some form or fashion to make a living. Nobody makes it for free, unless you are some sort of “trustafarian” or on EI or UI or you are a bum, either way you need to pay the piper. With that said, there are a lot of you AMER-A CANS that are awfully mad about the silliest of things. The jaded types you know, passive aggressive.
Like blaming a single person for the expansion and progression of a ski resort, blaming the Internet for your lack of POW turns, calling someone a “sell-out” or “corporate” because they have stickers on their helmet or decided to make a career out of something they love. Being too slow, not chargin enough, or just being from UTAH, that agro-shit has got to go eh! Take right off with that elbows on the traverse crap. My theory is that these angry people have a lot more than snow activities to be mad about. Here is a bullet list of the main reasons people deflect their anger on chill innocent bystanders when recreating on snow:
- their job sucks – most people who work inside are PISSED that they work inside a shitty cubicle and have hemroids from spending too much time on a shitty economical chair.
- their girlfriend/boyfriend is fat or not very hot or non-existant – look it’s mostly dudes being agro so generally it is the lack of girlfriend or hotness that is making them pop off.
- lack of self-esteem – In general the ski industry is filled with ego-maniacs/or fakers. Either way there is a huge amount of mirror time for all these folks gaining ego fuel every time they stomp a non-local or get “seen” doing something remotely gay/cool.
- lack of education – The English language is great. Lets use it, people don’t read books anymore, people don’t read period. I BET 90% of the people looking at this post won’t even read it. Dropping out of school to be a ski bum isn’t the best idea, can you say UNEMPLOYABLE!
- no blowjobs or any jobs for that matter – pent up. There is a saying in the woods up in the north,”Good enough for the girls I go with” describing the goods (being odd and the odds being good) that you will settle, especially in a ski town for ANY action, even if your buddy was just hitting those pillows the night before….ruthless.
- lack of skill – This gets me every time. Since new technology and better equipment more people with less skill are skiing in the backcountry. Going off piste now people have the tendency to wander to spaces unknown which create a tension between locals and visitors that is very difficult to manage sometimes. People have to get rescued $ spent, boundary rules changed, go to jail for skiing certain slopes, political closures. etc. We need some Mountain responsibility to not be a hazard waiting to happen.
Also, I am not sure but isn’t skiing and snowboarding a recreational activity meant to bring joy to our lives eh? In Canada nobody would ever fight you for pow turns, or the only girl in a ski town (well maybe), that shit is for non-locals and EURO’s that need to feel self-assured right eh? We would just say take off eh, and move on. We got health insurance so it’s all good.
