Ya...earn your "anything"... is kind of a macho bull$hit I'm better than you thing, right...


Not sure if that's sarcasm Chriselle, but I definitely don't read it as an I'm better than you thing. In fact those feelings are IMHO usually brought about by insecurities in the person claiming to be on the receiving end of them.

When used properly the "earned your"....anything should simply be a badge of respect for the effort expended to get the "earner" to where he/she is !!

Personally I think it's more the insecurities of the sayer......the need to gain approval from their peers by showing off their supposed badges of honour

(Edit - this is a reply to Tubby's post - Lord, Earl, Sir Chriselle of the Chriselle's Senior lll'd got in too quick for me)

Well you're assuming the "earner" is the one doing the saying which is probably a fair assumption amongst the narcissistic youth of today.

I (being of sufficient vintage to understand that the port only gets passed to the left) assume that in conversation it is the respector of the badge earned by the earner who is more likely to use the phrase as a compliment.

Or in Scottish terms Tubby "The loudest bummer's no' the best bee" :D

That may well bee ;) but in the context of this thread, it's moot. People who use such a phrase on here tend to be the ones who are striding naked up the mountain, naked through a blizzard while thumbing their gnarly noses at the unworthy plebs sitting comfortably in their hooded quad lifts taking the bourgeoisie route to the top

I love hiking and mountaineering. For me backcountry skiing is just hiking and mountaineering on snow and getting to ski down at the end of it. The benefit of it is that you're not constrained by things like chairlifts. It obviously allows you to access almost unlimited terrain. It also means you can extend your skiing season greatly heading up into the higher peaks long after the resorts have closed for the season. Even in resorts though I find if you are prepared to just do a little 'earning your turns' by hiking up a bit beyond and out from the lifts you can easily access terrain that few others get to. Not sure if I've ever used the term 'earn your turns' on here before but I'm glad there's a few members on here who are prepared to do it Like MikePow and ozsnowbum. Some of the best trip reports and photos come from guys like them heading out and beyond the boundaries of resorts.

It's the cheesy use of the phrase that is being derided here......not the actual fact that people enjoy hiking and riding backcountry.
