    I vaguely recall a snowboard with an… *cough*.. “alternative” alta sticker on it, does anybody know where you can get/make them? Maybe cafe press or something?

    Yeah, that’s me. I made a few of them and I can make more (within reason). I can’t really charge for them due to the circumstances of my work, but they are cool with me making a few every so often. Otherwise I’d go full production.
    PM your details if you want one.

    What is this alternative alta sticker you speak of?

    The reason I ask is I bought my split from a guy at the black diamond gear swap and it had a big Alta sticker on the tail…I just figured he liked to ski too..

    Snurfer: Awesome! PMing details

    Kyuule: well, they don’t say “Alta” 😉

    I’m sure Snurfer can post a picture.

    I have a hard core tele friend who keeps telling me i need to “get rid of f’ing board” (i hope he’s kidding, he still tours with me though…), and he likes alta, so I want to replace the sticker on his car to see if he notices…

    Hey Kyuule I wonder if you bought your split off my buddy. He had a couple Altal stickers on his boards. Just being funny, although he works for the evil heli doers and they make him ski when he guides. Thats what he gets. Karma

    This is what the sticker sheet looks like…. (6 decals) The actual images are a lot cleaner than this, the red outlines are the cutlines for the vinyl cutter.

    I am definitely digging those stickers. Would love to sport some on my boards. It is time to start spreading the hate on these guys…

    Just what the world needs – more hate.

    Whatever. They deserve it. Remember your roots.
    Anyone ever tried getting on a lift in split mode? Someone should do a helmet cam of that. Would be so sick.

    I will happily pay for some of those too.

    I want to make some stickers:
    “Fix the heel. Fix the problem”
    “Drop the knee. Squat to pee”

    I would put “Fix the heel, fix the problem” on my tele skis =)

    I made the stickers, and from my point of view this has nothing to do with hate.
    Many people display their Alta stickers either as a show of support, or because they want others to know they ski there.
    I’d like to share that I don’t care, and thus I want my sticker to imply fuck Alta. My intention is no different than the “Nobody cares that you ski at Alta” stickers.

    I like the stickers.

    I remember some pretty fun Alta/anti-Alta stickers made by an outfit called Vagabond Rider. I don’t know if they still operate. A few of them were pretty hard hitting. The less polemical and more straightforward one just said “Free Alta.”

    The anti-Alta buzz reminds me of the motorized/non-motorized debate. The motor guys don’t want access to most terrain, they want access to all of it. Does it take away from the experience of existing users? They don’t care.

    Alta is pretty unique in that the lift alignment isn’t very well suited to riding. Snowboarders would make the skiing experience a lot less fun.

    +1.

    I dabbled around there a bit when my knee still allowed me to play on 2 planks. Alta could open to boarders tomorrow and boarders would still bitch about it, only for different reasons than being closed to boarders.

    How much do y’all like post holing on ascending traverses with pissed off skiers behind and in front of you? :scratch:

    My $0.02.

    They had just better not put a lift of Flagstaff…. :nononno:

    Nice! How presumptuous…..
    I don’t want to ride there, don’t give a shit if they allow boarders, or not…. Rode there with a board, on the lifts in 84, never been invited to so many fist fights before, or since (talk about hate).
    Opposed to lifts up Flag and Griz (although allegedly its their land. All I got is a vinyl sticker, God, I’m such a baddy!)….
    I think the elitist attitude of many Alta regulars is deserving of a little middle finger (Ex: I didn’t start this thread)….
    Why do you care? After all it’s called splitboard.com, not butt-hurt-skier-dont-pick-on-poor-alta.com…. :scratch:

    Had a fist fight almost break out poaching the Alta pre-season inbounds terrain w/AT gear back on ’93…

    😆

    What a joke.

    Ride on!
