Just cause its ski patrol doesn't mean that it is just skiers. Ski patrol is open to any of the disciplines. While it is a little lame that they wanted you not to wear the jacket and were trying to get you not to wear it understand they did have some real safety concerns with someone confusing you with them but could also be one of them confusing you with another patroller. Granted by the sounds of it isn't likely, but the similarities was enough that they noticed you in the first place. Because a resort is a business they can decided to refuse service. Not necessarily fair but that's life. I say it isn't worth the time to get to upset about it. Heck one day you may need them and I believe in not screwing with karma. Plus I'd rather ride incognito anyways and it doesn't sound like that jacket would do the trick.
