One time I was in the lift line there was this socially inept middle age Chinese man who kept hitting my board with his ski pole on purpose. He thought it was funny and I kept telling him to "fucking knock it off" I put up with it about twice, on the third time I pushed him down (meant to punch him) and he nearly smoked his little son who was right behind him. He freaked out and started yelling at me in Cantonese. The lifties got involved but I had witnesses around me who confirmed that the guy instigated it for no real reason.
Other than incidents like that getting your board knocked in the lift line is just the norm. People should be more careful but you are just riding a snowboard, not a Mercedes.
