True that! the bad skier on the cat track is a pain in the ass, you did everything you could to keep your speed on that warm sticky day and when you decide to pass they get you to brake and become that dude one footed pushing along.
Honorable mention to the skier on the cat track with wannabee full race downhill stance, poles sticking out to the sides as high as they can go ready to poke anybody. (as if aerodynamism mattered at 4mph)
