Snowbasin Ski Patrol

I found this interesting. It's okay to have a bad day, it's not okay to freak out on people for irrational reasons.

Well for one thing, it's not A-Basin. It's Snowbasin. Two completely different ski areas in different states.

Ski patroller is pretty much being a douche. No way that guy was riding fast. I guess doing some spinny maneuvers counts as out of control in that douches eyes.

My mistake. I read it awhile before posting and didn't notice in time. Thx for the fix Kill/Wolf.

Meh, too much killer backcountry for me to worry about resort riding in either Colorado or Utah. It's a non issue in my book, though I have never really had problems with ski patrol at any Colorado or Utah resort. The only time I have had a problem is when I broke rule #1 and got caught poaching.

not sure who those pussies in baby blue are, but you shouldn't stop on sidehits. i wouldn't have even stopped to talk to them...

as for the patroller, whoever shot the vid should give it to his boss - or the media - and get his ass fired. period. that asshole obviously doesn't have enough gratitude for the position he is in and shouldn't have it. there are plenty of people who try out for ski patrol every year. fuck that guy.

also - every part of this video is a huge reason why i love the BC so much. fuck with me like that out there and you're gonna get smacked

bitchinbabyblue has a total cop/wannabe cop 'stache and haircut.... i'd never stop and talk to someone that looked like that on the hill... as for ski patrol, i won't show them my pass anymore if they ask... i'll just pretend i don't hear them and dip out. faster than most of em anyways

I've never been harassed at a Colorado resort by the red coat which is our patrollers

I've been at snowbasin and it's usually a VERY VERY chill place. This old man was just being an ass and was aplogizing by the end.

Should he be dismissed, absolutely. He was way out of line to a paying customer who was clearly in control.

That's the thing about CO if they see you in control, they don't mess with you from my experience.

And I'm surprised they found an ass at Snowbasin as I had 0 issues

This vid has gone viral, I saw this yesteday on the TGR forum. Someone actually sent it to the resort. Think they used a Go Pro for the vid...
