These people look faster to the yellow jackets. When I had terrible looking patched stained outerware I swear the yellow jackets would whistle at me more and I would get stopped more.
A couple of days ago I saw a mom and 2 kids standing right under this very steep drop off to the left of Spring dipper. I should of said something to the mom. They were being those idiots. In the skiers code you are not suppose to stop where you are not visable, but I would still feel terrible if I hurt 2 little children and a mother. I was going to jump off the drop off but saw them.
AND I FUCKING QUOTE "Snowboarders have no place on my mountain" Craig Simson head of Keystones Ski Patrol to me nearly 5 years ago. He is still there, he still heads up the mountain safety, and he still hates snowboarders.
