RockyMTNsteeze I hate the skiers that are oblivious to their poles when they walk around the villages. I wonder how many eye injuries occur each season.

I really hate the people who get very close to me on the mountain and buzz by. Those people ski/ride like idiots. You don't know if the person you get to close to is going to stop, butter, slow down or whatever. Give everyone space, especially beginners and children. Collisions are avoidable but pretty common. There is normally plenty of space.

Some parents are really stupid with their children. They push them to hard and take the fun out of it. Then they put the children into situations they are not ready for. I saw this on the lift. The child did not want to ride the terrain the mom was pointing out. It was pretty steep and icy. The kid had enough sense to notice the people on the slope struggling. Then when they get off the chair the child sharply cuts in front of me. he could not even un load a lift properly and the mom wanted him to ride all these steep icy blues.

EastCoastChris The worst part was...after like 20 minutes of trying to figure that fucking thing out...we ended up on a soul and knee crushing black mogul run anyway. In my defense though, my friend is complete and total moron when it comes to anything approaching critical thinking.

If I remember correctly Mt. Snow is a couple mountains with a ton of flats. So we were trying to find a way to the far side lodge to meet up with a buddy without skating too much. It turned into a debacle. Ya know how when you eat something like a cap or tab and going to the 7/11 turns into a life altering adventure? It was like that. Lmao.

I'm always laughing driving on weekends because its not rare to get behind a dude on the Freeway going reaaaaallllly slow with the car fishbowling. Lol. I still drive like a new yorker so I just weave around em. POTHEADS!!

Stoners on the hill are usually pretty entertaining too. Yeah def waaaaay more tolerable than people riding drunk. One of the last times I rode in my 20s my best friend and me went to Mt. Snow for the first time. We did our wake n bake on first chair and spent probably 85% of the day on our asses looking at the trail map. In our defense...that shit was waaaaay confusing. Ever notice how the colored lines like...cross each other? It was quite possibly the biggest waste of money ever.

Cool...
To me is more a flavor added to the day...a slight buzz.. to enhance the ride...not screw it up... pothead is as nice as to call a friend drunk because he had one beer?

While I'm on the lift or on the run I'm not thinking about mortgages, projects at work, my daughter's braces, or anything like that. You need to spend a certain percentage of your life doing something that has no ROI, no goal other than what you set for yourself, and otherwise no redeeming objective "value" outside of the deed itsself. This is zen.

And you will live longer, and enjoy it more.
On the contrary, I find riding to be a huge ROI. If not for snowboarding I would have been Xanax-ed up to my gills by now. And that shit costs a ton.
