i dont hate skiers. if i did i wouldnt exactly be on my fliming crew cuz the cameraman and a few members are skiers. the ones i hate are the old guys who think they have the right of way over everyone no matter where they are, tourists who also think the same, and the morons who use their poles to speed up and cut you off.

as snowboarders you all have a responsibility to be vocal any time you're near someone or passing them from behind on a trail - especially if they're the swishing back and forth type.

a simple holler out of "on your left blue jacket" or "on your right t-shirt lookin' like a dress" from 25 ft or so behind someone makes a lot of difference and you won't have to slow down and play frogger to get around them.

I do this too and it helps a lot... but I've also caused quite a few boarders/skiers to crash as they tried to look back at me.

I've done that from day one,.. Doesn't always help. I think that has a lot to do with in-helmet audio! (...that or plain ol' selfish dumbassedness!!!)

I've always done this on the MTB trails too when I encounter hikers or on the rare occasion when I'm overtaking someone on a bike, works even worse there!! Then someone suggested a bell for the bike. Now when I give it a ring before going into a blind corner,.. 9 times out of 10 I round the curve & people are already on the side of the trail!!

Wunder if I can rig something to use the bell with the snowboard!! "Ding-ding"

I had ridden with people that did this. I was gonna get a nice 360 off a drop off and her and her friend stop right in front of me. I shoulda just kept my mouth shut though. Caused a huge argument.....not pretty.

If someone from behind gives me a warning yell, I tend to freeze up and might end up in a bad crash myself. Cause during that moment I might wonder if I should look back, slow down, stop ...... or ease my turn or whatever. Maybe it's just me. Idk.

you might crash, but you won't be turning blindly into me at the very last possible second so you won't be crashing into me.

by doing it from a good distance behind the gaper i always have time to move or stop short completely if i have to, and if i yell on your left and you start turning left directly into me i'll just check your ass.

for cliffs and blind roll drop-offs i'll yell "DROPIIIIIING" as early into the entrance as possible if there is any reasonable chance someone could be cutting the fall line underneath. if i hear anyone down there i'll stop before or at the lip, still try and get a little pop off of it if i can, but obviously will pull it back and not hit it.

We all ride together. My son and I have a bunch or skier friends that we ride with daily. That being said.

The other day I Was coming off a black that converges with a blue and green trail... As usual the ski instructor had their kids lined up like ducks blocking the entire trail so I cut hard on my toe edge and stopped.... I was riding with a skier friend. Right as I stop about 3' short of the skiers some chick on skies comes out of the green going pretty fast straight at me. I'm down hill from her..... Fortunately my legs are preloaded and ready to spring back up and i have a hard toe edge hold when she runs into me. I pretty much did a football tackling drill on her and took her down so she wouldn't plow over me and into the kids. I'm also 280 lbs bone dry and nekkid.

Well when she starts collecting herself she starts blaming me for stopping and that's why she was running into me, it wasn't her fault, she thought. I fucking went off on this chick.... There were some yellow jackets behind her and saw the incident, one boarder and a skier. The skier started trying to tell me shit so I went off on her too. Then they laid into this chick who was still acting like she had no fault in any of it. She wasn't a small chick either, probably 170lbs.....

The skier that was cruising with me said it all looked hilarious. I didn't move an inch and she looked like she hit a wall. If my back was to her I probably would have been hurt.

I fucking hate newb skiers and snowboarders but we all had to start somewhere. I just they to steer clear of the green runs. When I am on them I just yell as I'm coming up on their sides, rears....
