ATTACK OF THE BROSKIMIANS
The greatest gift Powder has provided over the years is a sense of community. Beyond all the phenomenal photos and immersive stories, it’s the sense of a connected community that sets skiing apart from a mere group of individual consumers on some stupid social platform. This sense of community has always been at the core of skiing culture.
Now, contrast this with virtually every skier’s experience on the few overcrowded runs in Summit County due to 30-year drought conditions, or those at Whistler, getting continuously blasted by the local broskimians flying within inches of you and your 5-year-old daughter to nail a small kicker on the cat track.
Apparently, we all need a reminder to put down the social app and not act like a jackass on the slopes. Instead, act grown up, set an example by following the Responsibility Code, and show some respect to the rest of the community. The same applies to driving on I-70.
We agree that no one should ski recklessly around children, but acting too grown up on skis is a good way of asking to get sprayed in the face. –Ed.
