    Hey everyone,

    my name is Jon and I’ve been in Bozeman for about a year now. I worked at the Yellowstone Club last winter and got my east coast skills more accustomed to the depth of snow out here in MT.

    I’ve done a bunch of backcountry on the east coast, including a February summit and snowboard decent of Mt Washington and tucks. The most I’ve done out here has been out of bounds and the ridge of Bridger. Slushmans was my favorite, but now it’s going to be way over harvested.

    Anyway, I was hoping to find some other people to venture into Hyalite and the Spanish peaks with. I’m still getting my splitboard off the ground so I’ll be booting until then.

    Hey Jon,

    I’ve been looking for partners to split with in the area. So far no takers though. Dec. 3rd, 4th and 6th is the ASMSU Avalanche Level I safety course. It would be a good place to meet partners.

    – Sam

    awe man bra! you’re totally harshin my vibe! i’m sure you’re totally from Bozeman dude! you and all the other people from CA with $2000 setups rolling into the backcountry.

    it must be hard to find all that free time with your trust fund.

    Yes – Bozemanative owns the whole backcountry in Montana. It’s his personal property, so STAY OUT. Even though it’s the only place the provencial little butthole has ever been, Bozemanative knows it must be the best backcountry in the whole wide world. Hey Bozemanative – ever dream of visiting anywhere besides your local mountain? WELL STAY THE FUCK IN BOZEMAN.

    PS Do you walk the walk our just talk like a little bitch? Was your car made in BOZEMAN? Was your snowboard made in BOZEMAN? Was your toothbrush made in BOZEMAN? Is all the food you eat locally grown in BOZEMAN? Was your computer box made in BOZEMAN? If you are willing to accept goods and services designed, created, and grown by the good people who live outside of BOZEMAN why the fuck do you think you have any business telling people they can’t visit? One of BOZEMAN’s natural resources is beautiful mountains. The $$ that visits to those mountains brings helps pay for the goods and services that you import from other places. So fucking deal with it.

    Your anger is funny, Bozemannative. Thanks for providing me a laugh.

    Man, I can’t tell what’s more weird, Bozonative with his 4 posts and at least half of them saying the exact same thing, the ulcer that SanFrantasico is growing over the whole deal, or the near epileptic fit that I need to fight off whenever I log on and see all those smilies.

    I surfed for 18 years before I started getting into backcountry snowboarding. Little gangs of local dickheads are a total plague on the sport, so much so that I barely go surfing unless I’m traveling somewhere remote. People spend so much energy hassling each other and throwing out vibes that it sucks the fun right out of the sport. Believe me, you don’t want those vibes to pervade this sport. There’s kind of an excuse in surfing because there can be 50 people stacked up at a point break trying to get their turn at the next wave, so at least the crowding is real. If there are a few other people on a whole fricken mountain it seems kinda silly for that dude to twist his knickers.

    Oh yeah…

    I see where you’re coming from but this guy is just an internet troll.

    He’s just playing the “I’ve lived in Bozeman longer than you game”. It’s de rigour around here and EVERY single local web forum, or public social gathering, has someone that’s doing it. It takes newcomers and little kids a few years to figure out that no one gives a f—.

    Yeah – I know that game well. It’s played by losers the world over who don’t have anything else going on for them. If I sound apoplectic on the issue, that’s more my mad flame war skills showing through than any real anger so you’ll be happy to know that my digestive system is in good working order. But I am perfectly happy let dickweeds such as Bozemanative know that they are full of sh*t. When bullsh*t is repeated too many times without a challenge people start to believe it.

    Also I think it’s flat-out rude that the dude comes on the site to learn about the sport and get bc snowboarding stoke from all the people that contribute here, but his only contribution is to bray like an ass.

    Hey your cool for shredding where ever you are. All im saying is in the last 15 years especially bozeman area backcountry riding has seen to many people in my humbled opinion. so i said don’t move here. speaking of getting your nickers in a twist settle down. ya know, you dont have to respond to what i say. but am better at riding than you. and to be honest i dont realy dream of riding anywhere else but my own back yard. been dreaming of bumming here since i was 5 only then i was a mogul mouse at bridger.

    We get our knickers in a twist when tools show up and act like splitboard.com is TGR. Why don’t you try over there, instead of lousing up our backyard?

    While I don’t have to respond to what you say, I can certainly choose to whenever I like.

    I’m sure you are a better rider than me! Probably 90% of the people on this board are better riders than me. I don’t take that as an insult because being realistic about my ability keeps me open to learning more, which I do everytime I go out. I really consider myself fortunate that so many very talented and cool people have helped me learn about the sport of backcountry snowboarding. One of the great things that I really value about splitboard.com and the people I have met through it is the sharing and caring attitude. It’s about having fun!

    I saw a thing on ttips where a guy said there were 70 cars parked at Bridger Bowl (or somewhere – I don’t know the area) when he finished his morning run at 10AM. That’s crowded and I’m sorry you have to put up with it. But a bad attitude won’t keep the crowds down – it’ll just make them surely. If that’s the only place to ride BC around around Bozeman than I’d say the BC there isn’t so hot. But I’m sure like anywhere if you get up earlier or push deeper you’ll have no trouble finding a good time. If riding BC in Bozeman is really that bad I invite to come out and check out the Sierra sometime. We have about 400 miles worth of peaks, including some big, steep lines. I guarantee you’ll have a great time.

    Speaking of TGR, there is a 38 page thread about Bridger backcountry.

    Lots of great beta pics and such. Hmmm, should I post the link.

    ahh, I guess not.

    I can’t even find a guide book for the bozeman area. Dude you have it good.

    Doesn’t everyone just hike up from the lifts anyway. At least they require avi gear to go up to keep the rif raf Justin Timberlake types away. Just Go Farther.

    Oh, just how good are you at snowboarding? Like really good. Spankered?

    Junkie… He’s sooooooo good that he can drop a 2′ cliff, and do 2 turns b4 the ensuing “yard sale” occurs… that’s when I’ll ride by switch, and swipe his goggles.

    The Bozemannative must be at least 15.. seeing he’s sooo rad at boarding that he doesn’t even capitalize his i’s. At least his comment about being a better snowboarder is something a 5 year old would say.

    I never really understood the whole “don’t move here or else attitude” Its not exactly like bozeman is a secret. there are a lot of mountains around that area, i really doubt that one dude moving from the east coast is going to upset the entire balance of the backcountry scene. plus really what are you going to do about it?

    the earth is overpopulated. deal with it.
    bozemanative, go fuck yourself. thats far better idea for someone like you.

    I just sit and laugh. it seems like i got a lot of people worked up! the riding around here is good and i cant even explain how much fun i have riding here, but thanks for the invite. as far as the Bridger scene it is pretty sad but i get up early so it dosent bother me to much. And just how good am I well i can do a ss bs ts in the bridger terain park sooo yeah. And i could easily drop a 4 cliff and then do at least 6 slash turns before catching an edge. Some day maybe i will return to my home state of Vermont and cut in a sweet BC line brah! :headbang:
