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!"

Jeremy Jones and Conrad Anker, two of the leading faces of Protect our Winters, have a new message to share: pointing out the Jerrys in Congress. Yup, the Jerrys we all know and immediately recognize on the slopes, that seem to have no idea what they are doing. In a pair of video ads made to speak to skiers and snowboarders, Jones and Anker name two politicians on the ballot this fall, California Congressman Tom McClintock, and Montana’s Matt Rosendale (running for a Montana Senate
