MTN. TOWN, USA — A woman's attempt to teach her boyfriend to ski "totally failed" Thursday when the couple started yelling at each other halfway up a local bootpack.
Cold feet, a slow pace and boyfriend Brett Schroder’s strict adherence to a frequent marijuana-use policy left the couple bickering and on the cusp of a total meltdown.
“He’s such an asshole,” ski bum Becky Sanders, 24, told TGR of her now ex-boyfriend. "I thought I could change him— make him into the perfect ski-town boyfriend — but people have to want to change. And what’s with taking a ‘safety break’ every 200 feet?”
The relationship started after Schroder, 26, quit his lucrative finance job in Manhattan to move to Jackson Hole to learn to ski and "live the dirtbag lifestyle." But according to friends of the transplant, Schroder quit skiing after a single half-day of drunkenly eating shit on green terrain.
I can't find a boyfriend that can keep up, so I don't date skiers anymore.
After convincing him to try again — but realizing the depth of the problem — Sanders quickly lost physical and mental attraction, until her frustrations boiled over, exploding into a very public display of dissatisfaction on the Glory Bootpack.
Following twenty minutes of fighting and being passed by uncomfortable skiers and snowboarders, Sanders allegedly told her now-ex-boyfriend to "fuck himself" before clipping in and skiing off alone.
In a written message to TGR, Sanders says she's still single — and for the 2018 ski season — plans to keep it that way. "I can't find a boyfriend that can keep up, so I don't date skiers anymore and just have alone time with my crew!"

The epiphany came during a 3:37 am emergency porta-potty trip in which Hewitt was forced to press his bare ass to several questionable surfaces — all in subzero temps and with only rocks and snow to use for clean up.

GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK — The scientific community was stunned Friday morning after a report in the journal indicated that National Park Service biologists had uncovered the elusive elevation that deer turn into elk. Conducted in the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem, the study put to rest longstanding questions pondered by generations of gapers regarding the approximate altitudinal relationship between deer and their girthy-throated cousins, elk ( According to Teton Park biologist Gregor
Many outdoor enthusiasts have at one time or another fantasized about having an outdoor Shangri-La, a place to dream up, build, and enjoy whatever the heart desires. From private skate parks to off-the-grid cabins, for those willing to invest the time and finances, building a shred oasis can be accessible to a multitude of budgets. While the most well-known snowboard wonderland might be the DC Mountain Lab, Ken Block’s high-budget and defunct haven, over the last several years a more
