Skinny Bam Holy shit I was there Wednesday night and Frenchman was the 1st run we did. I remember the next lift up someone told us they closed it but wasnt sure why...now I know, pretty eerie. The snow was super fast that night for sure but the runs were all pretty wide, I wonder how she ended up in a tree?

Ride there this year, and then when you think about it this summer your gonna facepalm and be like jesus h christ i'm never going back to that shithole disney mountain again.

I'll go back for a51 laps but w/e its a deathtrap.

Just observe the volume of people screaming down roped off hardpack blue runs. its basically been a luge course for the last 2 years with tree walls instead of ice walls.

To be fair everyone has to keep in mind how fast we are going and to be careful. A good friend of mind who is an expert skier hit something weird in flat light this morning and broke his collarbone in 2 places and is all jacked up. He regularly clocks over 70mph, and figures he was doing close to 50 when he fell. How many people are we watching at keystone doing 35mph+ who you know for sure have an insignificant fraction of the experience and skill of a seasoned expert?

RIP Keystone Daredevils.

RockyMTNsteeze I have a high number of days at Keystone. Like 800.

Keystone's Ski Patrol never bother me. One time a ski patroller busted me for ducking a rope into a closed run and gave me a stern lecture. I actually listened and he had valid points for me not to be going into a closed run. He let me go and another person who did the same thing. We both reacted calmly and were friendly towards the patroller. I have been carted down by Ski Patrol. Sometimes they tell me to slow down.

Are the snowboard patrollers at Keystone self loathing snowboarders? I doubt it. Not all mountains allow snowboarders in ski patrol. I know some ski patrollers who are cool and not dicks. This one guy sounds like a d-bag, but I never even hear of him.

I don't like the person who decides where to put the fences and no jumping signs. I don't like mountain watchers, they are the anti fun police. They are not good at noticing who are riding and skiing responsibly. It took like 5 off them to catch me when I was unintentionally sending them on a wild goose chase years ago. I did not know they were after me and once I did I tried to get away. I also got a warning for a foot of air from those yellow shit heads.

killclimbz Keystone definitely has a bias against boarders. Finn from Bomber bindings had a legendary meeting with Craig Simson. He got the same anti snowboard response from Craig. If anyone knows Finn, he is a pretty mellow, reasonable guy. There was no need for Craig's attitude. Fuck Keystone.

These people look faster to the yellow jackets. When I had terrible looking patched stained outerware I swear the yellow jackets would whistle at me more and I would get stopped more.

A couple of days ago I saw a mom and 2 kids standing right under this very steep drop off to the left of Spring dipper. I should of said something to the mom. They were being those idiots. In the skiers code you are not suppose to stop where you are not visable, but I would still feel terrible if I hurt 2 little children and a mother. I was going to jump off the drop off but saw them.
AND I FUCKING QUOTE "Snowboarders have no place on my mountain" Craig Simson head of Keystones Ski Patrol to me nearly 5 years ago. He is still there, he still heads up the mountain safety, and he still hates snowboarders.
