the annoying kids at the park that sit down in front of the jump runup, nowhere near high enough to get enough speed to clear it, and sit there and talk for 10 minutes, so I have to go around them and lose some speed, and then when they are done with their conversation they will all go down, speed check like 10 times and not even get close to the knuckle.

The food prices at Breckenridge irritate the crap out of me! Paid $18 for a burrito and a drink ($14 for burrito and $4 for drink). Even Vail and Beaver Creek are cheaper than that and they're the premium priced resorts in CO. Yes, I understand that you've gotta pay to play and I expect that...But charging $14 for a burrito that at any other resort only costs $9 or 10 is pure BS IMO.

At least at Copper & Winter Park, you get a 20% discount (at the base) for having a season pass, which brings food prices back down to somewhat sane levels.

Good ol' Breck trying to make everyone think they're an uber premium resort by fucking them in the pocketbook.

yesterday at grouse was icy as hell... i bailed multiple times buttering down the cut lol. the kicker landings were so icy and it was almost guaranteed wash-out/catch an edge everytime you attempted anything bigger than a 1. I hate after tons of people hit a kciker there is that gap in the landing...


but yea, good time to practice box/rails/jibs.

I second the ice bit. It's so icy here that my knee injury starting acting up so we had to call it a day. And the closest park is an hour and a half away.

I hate how after a ton of skiiers hit a side jump there are 2 ski grooves in the kicker to get my board caught in. Which I did. And I landed on my ass painfully.

honestly the OP comment was rather obtuse. Stop and think about the logic in the slapping of their boards. Lets hypothesis and say you're riding in 12inches of new snow, but wet heavy snow. What's the point of tailing it up the lift and burning out your leg? Stomping the board clears the snow. Next time you see something you don't agree with, stop and think logically as to why they're doing it before stating an illogical diatribe.
