    Truth is that most if not all professional gravity sports athletes cringe when folks like cg and brody spew.
    Same reasons that we all got a bad taste in our mouths.
    They're really wanna b's.
    That cg is from the Wasatch embarrasses me.
    She does not represent this community.
    There are scores of badass women round here making her look like the schoolchild she is.
    Not making no fuss bout it, and certainly not always saying "am too".

    Latest cg gripe?
    Went to Denali and promoted going to the top from the 14 camp.
    When just this year the park service discouraged this practice due to many rescues.
    Time spent skiing cannot be deducted from one's life.

    Why all the Caroline Gleich hate?

    Dude, you donít speak for all of the Wasatch either, and definitely not all professional athletes. I happen to know quite a few pros in the Wasatch who like and/or have no problem with Caroline.

    All of this just smacks of misogyny and sour grapes.

    There are not professional action sport athletes these days that donít do marketing for themselves, donít take on sponsors, and donít have big social media followings.

    All you and others have done in this thread is bitch about a woman you donít like with gatekeeping, moving goalposts, and made up standards that no professional would ever live up to.

    If you donít like it, donít follow her. Nobody is forcing you to read her IG.

    Might be time go post up her resume. She's still pretty young but she's racking up an assortment of various endurance accomplishments around tge globe. She's definitdly not blogging from the couch scarfing cheetos and doing her nails. Maybe xhe needs a big facial scar and a couple missing teeth for some real cred

    So would you prefer the sport be like waterskiing? Zero pro athletes (that I know of) speaking out about climate change. No organizations dedicated to lobbying the government to protect our waterways which are also heavily impacted by climate.

    POW has zero midwestern footprint afaik. That is my biggest complaint about that organization. As much as I identify with the intermountain west, I don't live there.

    Your anger posts and unrelenting cynicism probably hasn't opened as many eyes as POW. Mostly my eyes, for example, are closed to you. Why do I care what someone who has shown contempt for me thinks? I don't. JJ on the other hand always makes me look. The couple interactions I have had with him have been respectful. POW is in your face and it keeps climate on the mind. So greenwashing or not, it is serving some purpose even if you feel it is just some pros excuse for a job.

    POW does a disservice to anyone that cares about climate change by providing a very easy target for the cry of “hypocrisy”. They are easy to dismiss and have been for years. I’ve though that for over a decade.

    Thatís pretty weak criticism. They have different tactics than many enviro orgs, which you can debate the effectiveness of any of them, but I have never seen or heard them do anything I would classify as greenwashing.

    Of course you wouldn’t. pOW doesn’t exist in the Midwest because telling people “save the planet by staying at home in the flatlands and watching us have fun on video” sucks ass as a message.

    edit: perhaps I’ve missed all the climate friendly things they done to teach people how to live and enjoy the outdoors and winter sports without doing the traditional shit.

    Iíll say one thing: at least this goddamn rag of a magazine has people talking about quality writing in the ski industry again.

    I donít subscribe to the magazine, so hereís the question: is the article a biased look that just accuses and doesnít offer any other points of view? Or is it a fairly written piece?

    You're a fucking retard for even re-posting this. Cody is a co-founder of that company (Arcade) here in Tahoe and they have at least a dozen employees if not more. That's 100% legit PPP. That has fuck all to do with his Fifty Project.

    The bootlicking in this thread is strong.

    Agree, that is legit. I was wrong to repost that.

    It is what is wrong with the internet. This should be a discussion with answers still undiscovered. It is why this topic is so interesting. Cody is so cool, I'd be super hard pressed to throw shade at him for any reason unless I really knew he fucked up.

    I think we need to ask ourselves why it is so easy to throw shade at CG.

    And I know I am missing facts that can't be spoken online. Living in the boondocks. Not part of these communities.

    If you look above, I actually said CG shouldnít be getting as much thrown at her than others. But I think she really gets under peopleís skin, not because sheís a woman but because of her smug, preachy attitude. I donít give a shit but this whole thing is pretty eye opening. Itís a microcosm of a very fucked up money grab.

    This argument evaporated the second they decided to apply for tax dollars to fund their luxury adventure lifestyle. Our money, our problem.

    I'm reveling in the fact that I have no idea what this is about.

    I don't twitter, so can't read the links, nor do fb, tiktok and only peripherally poke at instagram.

    With all the other more serious issues ongoing, I'm someplace between confused and amazed at concern for her.

    SoÖ not a CG fan but some of you all need to chill. As for Mountain Gazette, Rogge is a good dude and legit and heís not looking to hate on anyone unless they deserve it. Subscribe to his mag, heís in it for all the right reasons.

    Glad some sense got into this thread regarding PPP funds and how they work with a company like Arcade. They worked exactly as intended as we had about two months of runway in April 2020 and then, 13 jobs in Tahoe lost permanently. So yeah, PPP saved our ass and our employees asses. Also, if I somehow diverted funds to my personal businesses like Summit Lunch for the Fifty, that would constitute as fraud and our loans wouldnít have been forgiven. Interesting being on the prey side of an internet mob. First time! Itís not fun and holy fuck have I learned people are biased to throw a rock through your window before checking to see if itís the right address. But yeah, that RMR guy, Iíve learned who he is and heís got some deeply personal beef with a couple Utah influencers thatís bled out to hating just about anyone with an blue check in the outdoors, so definitely donít trust that dude.

    If you count all affiliated that work with Arcade, weíre probably around 100+. But if you count just in our office in Olympic Valley, 13. Maybe 14 or 15 now. But I donít know because I am only involved on board level stuff these days. The pandemic was a bit different as it was all hands on deck to bail water though, that was the most stressful month of my life. Itís gnarly realizing you and your buddy who started the company are responsible for the livelihoods of a new mother whose husband was just laid off and they just bought a new house and if we go under theyíre fucked. So yeah, to PPP, it saved our asses right then.
