    Attention XC Skiers:

    Why are all of you *******s? I got the stink eye today from every single XC skier in the PUBLIC trail today. I would say "hi" they would glare. (I'm on a bike)

    Wow, Cypress, you sound exactly like a non-road bike riding cyclist complaining about what happens when they encounter a roadie.

    Or the XC pansies when I blow past them downhill running a 67* head angle, baggy pants and a full face helmet

    I was/am a mountain biker before a roadie. On the road, I only get the shaft from fem-roadies.

    XC riders are one step removed from roadies.

    Hmmm I guess XC skiers in Montana are jerkfaces. I've met some friendly ones here in Utah.

    to XC skiers, a mountain biker is probably just like a snowmobiler, ruining their track.

    I get yelled at by XC skiers all the time when I'm on the snowmobile. I point out the fact that I have a trail pass, which means I pay for the trails to be groomed, which means I have every right to be on the trail when technically they shouldn't be there in the first place, considering none of them pay a cent towards trail maintenence.

    I ride the Rockingham Recreation Trail in Windham New Hampshire all of the time. I get astonished, friendly greetings from both the XC skiers and the snowmobilers. The skiers go out of their way to give me the right of way.

    I get off the trail a wave at all of the snowmobiles. All wave back. Some stop to chat about the weather, trail conditions and tire studs. "Where are you coming from/ridding to?"

    Its all good.

    Were you wearing a 'Porsche' logo-ed hat?

    If not, they probably had a look at your ******/deer picture you posted earlier and were astonished that you had missed!

    Skiers make two parallel tracks in the snow to follow, and it makes for the most efficient and enjoyable tour.

    If you were riding in these tracks, you are lucky to have escaped without dreadful injury, by giving you the stink eye, they were VERY generous. Snow shoes do even worse damage to the track, it you snowshoe, stay the **** off the ski tracks!

    Bottom line, just ride away from the tracks and your sure to get flowers instead of scorn.

    I love it when I get to ski up on the Blue Ridge Parkway to find nice tracks that have been walked though by hikers. I mean they can walk anywhere, why posthole though the doubletrack? I assume it is just ignorance here in the S.E.

    Come to Texas, ya'll. You will never have to worry about snowmobilers or snow shoers screwing up your double track, ever.

    That's a great idea, I've just never found skiing in bullsh** that much fun

    We are lucky in Oregon, we don't get Texans driving their Ford Excursions in our ski tracks, they all go to Colorado and make fools of themselves!

    It is an acquired taste Shifty, and yes, so of my brethren can be a tad oafish at times. Please accept my apologies for their actions.

    I stay the hell away from the WELL defined tracks. They are like 2 inches deep. Asking for death.

    Skiers don't suck. They pack down nice single track for us.
