I don't understand... Don't you want someone to carve to keep the speed in check?? Without carving, how else does one slow down on a green run, and stay in control??

Skidded turns, of course. The only kind of turn they apparently expect to see there.

I still can't believe these stories you guys tell. The resorts must be way more packed or something. Last time I had anybody so much as say boo to me was back in Ontario when I cut through a couple trees...

In AB/BC the patrollers will wail along with you and hit some jumps.

Ouch, hope it's feeling even better today.

The be fair I do feel like a hipster when I scarve on a green run. I mean... I'm scarving before it was cool, all these other noobs are just pretenders. They need to get out of my way.

Happened to me last season as well. I was carving down a green and slashed to slow down near the "slow" sign and was chewed out by a liftie. I didn't pay him any mind though.

Edit: and I should mention the run was nearly empty

Today I am really hating obnoxious password requirements. They think they're making passwords more secure but it sure as hell has the opposite effect for me.

This is my day today. The second one is really pissing me off because I'm getting the error message but as you see, every requirement is green which means it has been met. WHY YOU NO WORK?
