In fair Winter Park, where we lay our scene.

Two snow sports both alike in dignity.

Okay, iambic pentameter is a lot harder than it seems—so that’s all we got. But, any of you literature lovers, or anyone who passed the 8th grade (or just watched WishBone) probably have an inkling of where this is going.

The tale of two Italian star-crossed lovers is one that many of our riders can relate to—the tale of love between a snowboarder and a skier. Both dignified snow sports, and yet still a rivalry exists! If your heart belongs to an opposing rider, you are in good company. We understand the benefits of having your better half cruising on a different setup!


Someone can always give you an extra push

Getting stuck on flats is the bane of a snowboarder’s existence. With a skier honey, you’ll have someone to either offer a pole or give you a good push. Teamwork makes the dream work!


Always have a new perspective

If you spend a significant amount of time riding with your S/O you’ll realize that taking a backseat and letting them take lead on the mountain can be pretty cool. Watching them do their thing can help you learn more about your sport and your style. Not to mention riding behind them can offer a pretty good view.

You have a teacher if you want to learn a new sport 

Want to spend a day learning something new? If your person rides the mountain differently, you have an instant teacher ready and waiting. If they are passionate about their sport, they will love getting to spend a day teaching you, and vice versa. *Bonus if they are similar in height and shoe size and you can just swap gear.* Or try taking a lesson, and surprise them with your new found knowledge.
