People running into your board in the lift lines...

What in the shit is up with people?!

First day out and I get a top sheet scuff from some idiot in the lift lines. And the punk 16yo kids seem to think it's ok to keep running into everyones boards....

Finding myself having no patience for people that run into you shit, but what can you do? I chicken hawk my board and try to move it before and fucks hit it but it's a pretty difficult task.

I'm gonna make backcountry more of a priority this year with hopes to avoid some idiots.

Guessing this is part of the bullshit that goes down during an opening weekend. Hope the punk kids don't come back out next weekend

That sucks...but it IS part of snowboarding. Be thankful you don't get the eejit ski race kids who think it's ok to stab your equipment with their ski poles while they bad mouth snowboarding.

Fack that... At Grouse, we often get kids throwing snowballs in the lift-lines (I call them kids but they're probably older than me).

Ya know, if someone just learning runs into my stuff, I'm not going to get all bent out of shape. However, someone trying to jack my stuff up that I paid good money for? Oh no. As far as I'm concerned, that's grounds for an ass whuppin'!

Last year at Gore some 40 (Just a guess on his age...) year old guy dressed in all neon green came charging down the slope at about 50 mph straight into the lift line and knocked down about 8 people. He tried to blame a kid for "pushing" him into the line. He was a complete dumbass to even be going that fast near a lift.

He also rode over my board after knocking them over. Put a nice scratch in it....

He should have gotten his ticket pulled for that.

People run into your board all the time. Not really a big deal. A scratch on the top sheet won't hurt anything. However, when I get a kid that keeps bumping me from behind I just turn around and stare at them with a WTFMATE face. Generally that gets the point across.

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.

It's not that big of a deal, but it's still pretty annoying. I let it go when it's a one-time accident. If the same person keeps doing it, acciental or not, I'll give them a look or say something about paying attention or knocking it off.
