SkiZer had women on his mind on day 34 of the season.
But that didn’t stop some interesting thoughts. Such as, why on a powder day, are dudes such assholes?
First of all, the day was incredible. It was probably the best powder day of the year, with a cold storm dropping eight inches, and it dumped another five during the day. That’s over a foot, my friends, on top of two feet that have fallen in recent days.
Soft? Yes, incredibly so, with every turn feeling effortless. SkiZer never took a break, skied uncut lines for most of the day and scored his biggest vertical of the season (40,000 feet).
Back to Women’s Day.
Powder days are dude-fests, there’s no getting around it. The lineup in the morning for first chairlift ride was a testosterone-filled sh*t show. Maybe one or two women were in line with the 80 or so dudes waiting, but SkiZer never saw them.
So when you find yourself in the company of men, you’re bound to see bad behavior. Line-cutters. Stupid braggarts. More stupid braggarts. Aggressive shoving.
Now, if this was a lineup of women who were waiting on a powder day, you’d see none of these bad social characteristics. There would be no line-cutters. Instead of braggarts, you’d see conversationalists. Instead of aggressive shoving, you’d see polite, “After yous.”
Wouldn’t it be nice.
