I can see where the OP is coming from, you dont want your new stick busted up b/c of a hazard you didnt know was there, and you dont want to have people zipping by you at high speeds who arent paying close attention/in complete control, BUT...

Have you ever driven on a highway in Alberta? A major freeway anywhere? Its the same thing...the roads can have hazards and people are assholes....something you just gotta get used to.

Unfortunately long lift lines, poor conditions and inconsiderate people are something we have to get used to as the resorts are packed due this sport (and skiing but less so) being awesome! We get spoiled by days that have bottomless pow and no lines (Nelson on a weekday is my white rabbit), but like my friend above from Japan said...just go do your thing and be stoked!
