ya but the video looked like he was just trying to spray EVERYONE. Started at 19 seconds. Anyone close he would ride up to and spray, anyone on the side of the hill, clearly out of the way, he would spray.

and you shared this why???

lol I only sprayed one person on purpose the dude at 50 seconds. The rest I was just trying to avoid. I do believe I sprayed myself about 6 times. I dont hear any one complaining about that. Plus there is this wonderful thing called gear. Keeps you dry.

Well that is not the way it comes across or appears on the video that you took.
I counted 11 sprays at time frames:
  • 18
  • 27 sec
  • 36 sec
  • 49 sec
  • 1:12 sec
  • 1:22 sec
  • 1:31 sec
  • 1:37 sec
  • 2:14 sec
  • 2:46 sec
  • 2:54 sec

My hill is 10x more crowded than that and it just seemed that you could have easily steered yourself away from many of those riders. You almost rode over 2 peoples skis.

If your new and just learning ok, I still think you could have missed much of that traffic.

Yes my gear keeps me warm and dry, I still don't expect some random dude riding down a hill to come spray me....I'll drop it now, and it looks like you have some great hills to ride on. Wish my resort was more like that but not what we have around here.

thats exactly what i was thinking. it looks like a green groomer...whoopee, so you go fast down a beginner hill full of beginners and make a bunch of hard stops kicking up spray, theres nothing impressive about that.

Dude, the video I posted a couple days ago is very similar in the fact that it is just a groomer video clip..

You don't see me kicking snow at people.. respect other people that are trying to enjoy their day.

I agree with this sentiment. Lucky you didn't spray me, I would have hauled ass after you and buried you six feet under. (Slight exaggeration). Hah, I'm pissed even when a buddy does that once in a while and I'm kinda shocked we didn't hear anyone cursing or even saying anything!

Having said that, there's a difference between someone sitting in the middle of the run and off to the side. I'd be pretty pissed if someone was in the middle of a run, standing still or worse, sitting. You wouldn't park your car in the middle of a busy freeway and have a picnic on your hood would ya? There's mountains where during a Pow day, some of those peeps would have been slammed into instead of just sprayed because visibility isn't great. Keep it moving or get off to the side!

You're a total dick for spraying the riders on the outside, but as far as I'm concerned it's really ignorant to being having a snooze in the middle of a stampede of people shredding the mountain. -Rest in the chalet :P
