Not a single response is in support of this guys opinions besides Ravi, who posted quotes of submission by the splitboard community that we in fact, aren’t as fast as skiers in transition.

I truly miss the days where snowboarding/splitboarding was shunned and scoffed at. I think we’re turning into the elitists to an extent. March 14, 2013 at 2:45 pm #666926 powslash 382 Posts ^^ 😛 That is some tolerant and reasonable moderating by BCrider though am I right? @BGnight wrote: This guy is the best troll ever and I fully support his cause.

Digging the dadboarders renewed fiery fuck you passion but I suffered some abuse from skier pricks as a young person that I’m still working through as a growed man. Could do without the bad treatment. Trying to find peace in my life.

It’s a little long to repost in entirety here so I’ll just link to it: http://mtsplitski.wordpress.com/2013/03/13/in-defense-of-splitboarding-pt-1/ March 14, 2013 at 11:02 pm #666927 Snowolf 86 Posts Wow this guy is a douchebag! As I posted on his FB page, since in most cases the avalanche victim is usually killed by blunt force trauma, if you are in a position to use your beacon, shovel and probe, your group already effed up big time. I really dont understand this “argument” about the time it takes to switch to riding mode either. In every avalanche class and clinic I have been involved with it seems that standard protocol is to get out of your skis or board on begin your search pattern on foot. Am I missing something here? There simply is no room for this kind of ignorant, bigoted attitude in the backcountry!

Why do I have the feeling that this person has no opinion of Splitboarding. I believe rather that this is David Gottoroff creating a fraudulent Facebook account to appear that he has support. Ravi looks like an enlightened individual who holds no ill will to snowboarders/splitboarders. Lets hope that David Gottoroff loses his job by doing something so despicable as impersonating a faculty member on Facebook “This is what motivates Ravi Parashar, economics teacher at UWC-USA since 1992. Beloved by students for 20 years, Ravi is known for serenading anyone in his path and calling everyone “sweetie” http://www.uwc-usa.org/employees Hahahaha priceless!!! March 15, 2013 at 6:00 am #666903 Snowolf 86 Posts Well, he has deleted everyone`s comments except those that agree with him. Hey guys, if you click on the photo of our friends child, under options you can report it to Facebook as harrassing a friend. I did this and I think everybody should do this until Facebook removes it.

Hey guys, if you click on the photo of our friends child, under options you can report it to Facebook as harrassing a friend. I did this and I think everybody should do this until Facebook removes it. I’ve done this several times and FaceShot couldn’t give a micro shit….They wouldn’t even take down my photo that had my personal info as a caption. My picture is gone now but I think David Gottorff took it down on his own. Facebook security and harassment protection is a joke. March 15, 2013 at 3:10 pm #666930 SPLITRIPPIN 709 Posts Another good reason why social media spew sites like ASS-book, and twatter should be avoided at all costs. Bones loves those sites, so he can post up about shaving goats buttholes with his fancy ski edges! It would be pretty damn sweet to run into that ass clown guy in the mountains…An encounter with team shred would not be a good day for Mr. captain shithole nibbler. I mean serious…who posts pictures of themselves skiing naked in the backcountry?! Well, unless they’re skiiers with a self inflated sense of how skiing is sooo much better than snowboarding. I’ve never seen a flailing skiier in the backcountry…Like….EVER!

Key word here is “I’m” Dude, the only fighting that I do is when I fight the nearly uncontrollable urge to kick a second hole into your ass, right next to the torn up one that you already have. David Gottorff is a lowlife shit eater and he has to live with that fact every day. I will never give up a portion of my wonderful life by doing violence to such a loser. He will know how small he is when I’m finished with him, however…… March 16, 2013 at 12:50 am #666934 Swampbuster 124 Posts Uh oh. Shit is getting ugly. This was just posted on the SINTA page: “Love this photo! “Hike for Turns” and “Bones” have threatened us and spam bombed our email because they want it taken down. Now it will NEVER be taken down as a result of their behavior. We are reasonable people who would have honored your request if it cam from an endeerig parent instead of cyber harrassing thugs. Oh ya……guess we win. Don’t worry your loss though comes with a bonus. Can you say criminal charges? Cause we can.” Who are “us” and “we?” Apparently he thinks he has a posse. Oh, FYI: I copy-and-pasted that quote directly from the FB page, so those typos aren’t mine. Nice grammar/editing. This guy is a professor?! March 16, 2013 at 1:10 am #666935 Chair2BoardSports 62 Posts Wow, some professional he is. I made a simple comment about how if we are going to ban splitboarders from the BC, we should also ban snowshoers and mountaineers. I then went on to say that we should focus our energy on education about snow pack analysis and terrain management, rather than picking on any single group of people. My comment was deleted and I have been banned. Nope, no bias there. Totally reasonable guy. Ha. :thumpsup: He is probably going to loose his job… P.S. He highlighted that picture of your son, and claims YOU are going to get criminal charges? :scratch: March 16, 2013 at 1:59 am #666936 HikeforTurns 1113 Posts :bananas: March 16, 2013 at 2:38 am #666938 stoudema 551 Posts Wow, what a f’kin tool. I’m tempted to post on his facebook, but after thinking about it, agree with what some others have said…. The worst thing in the world for this guy would be if everyone just ignored him. He doesn’t exist. It would drive him crazy. He’s getting off right now on the attention and clearly looking for confrontation. If he gets no attention, he’ll go f’king nuts and do something desparate. That, or just keep giving Ravi reach arounds.
