People who had to put down other’s preference are typically the kind who’s insecure of their own preferences. So they have to constantly justify theirs by crap on any different others have.
This is kind of like a "beer snob" who wouldn't be caught dead drinking something from brewery they consider inferior or a style they consider below them. I'd much rather have a beer with someone who loves say a cold bud light or PBR, because they love beer, rather than someone who wouldn't even think of drinking a bud light or PBR because of the stigma.
I'd rather ski with someone who just loves to be out on the hill, regardless of where that hill is or who owns it. Skiing/riding is such an incredible sport, let everyone enjoy it in the way that they best seem fit, and if that's not your style, well then to paraphrase as bit from what John Kimmich, the owner of The Alchemist brewery, so appropriately puts on each can "don't be a d-bag"
