Dude, the video I posted a couple days ago is very similar in the fact that it is just a groomer video clip..
(Snowboarding Lake Louise - Gondola Lap - YouTube)
You don't see me kicking snow at people.. respect other people that are trying to enjoy their day.
Kindness goes a long way... and Karma is a bitch.

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

Does it make you feel cool or like a better rider to get as close to people as you can with out hitting people and spraying them?

The ole spraying people debate. I have always been a firm believer of spraying people: strangers, friends, and even myself. If someone is laying down in pain I do stop and check on them so I won't spray them. It is snow and it is all in fun. When I get sprayed meh who cares spray them when you see them later.

Opening day at Brighton this year, some little kid, 12 or 13 years old, broke his arm on a giant rock/boulder. While waiting with him for ski patrol, while screaming bloody murder, at least 10 people sprayed snow all over him/us. Which obviously made things much worse for this kid. Apparently the two snowboards, mine and his, sticking up in the snow right in front of us wasn't much of a clue that someone was injured. We were not even on a groomed run, we were on a side of a hill, hence the giant rocks.

I think it comes down to two things, people are just completely oblivious or complete ass holes.

I can understand the morons sitting/laying down out of sight behind rolling terrain or in the middle of a run or blind turn. There isn't another way to tell these idiots to 'rest' at the bottom or off to the side, far away.
