One thing that pissed me off recently, last night actually, was that there was ski club for high schoolers at the mountain. Yayyy fun! Most of which pose to be snowboarders but in fact just like to pretend to be cool and would rather just talk. So anyways...there is a nice short little cut over trail with a nice 8 foot ledge to jump off of that every skier and boarder that can actually ride it hit. So I take it hit the ledge to a little 360 on to find a bunch of kids standing under it on the other side talking. Luckily I didn't land on anyone as I was carrying more speed than normal and cleared all but one kid which the tail of my board grazed the top of his head. Needless to say I was mad that they were there and they were mad at me for hitting a very very popular ledge. IDIOTS! Who sits right where two trails meet and under a ledge. BOARD OR GO IN THE LODGE AND TALK!

I also agree about the retards day-dreaming in front of the unload ramp. You come of the lift and there they are...right in your way. I usually give em a little spray over their skis and a stare to make sure I get my point across. I also hate those damn komma-kazee skiers who only know how to go straight down the fall line of a hill. I'll be cruising down a blue or black and next thing I know some asshole youngster is bombarding down the hill behind me, usually screaming or doing something really stupid. Sad thing is they have no idea about the right away on a hill or nothing. It's not even f@#king skiing, but they think they are so damn cool. I'm already getting sick to my stomache just thinking about it and I'm pretty sure my blood pressure just doubled. I hear people say noobie snowboards are the worst on the hill, but that is abosolute BS. Noobie skiiers who can't turn shouldn't be skiing. It would be like a first time driver going 150 mph down the freeway and not able to turn. Stupid people.

Meh, I just take a beer in the lodge, and go back out enjoying it not letting it get to me.

As for the stomp thing, I do it sometimes before getting on a lift to shake loose snow off, without anyone else's board around to knick. Sorry If I make so much noise

I usually kick off the snow with my free foot while on the lift...

Skiers (or boarders... but it's usually skiers) who stop directly in front of me while I'm strapping in and stand there enjoying the scenery. How the hell am I supposed to get around when I'm ready to go 10 seconds later ?

I kick the ground with my board a couple times to get snow off if it's building up, but I don't go crazy with it (it's a snowboard... there ought to be some snow on it, right?) and I'm careful not to hit other people's gear.

you know what really grinds my gears.......

when i strap in i go out of my way to be as far away from the crowd.. what really grinds my gears is when someone comes along and sits down right infront of me to strap in just when im finishing..

Myself... being a "NewYork jerk off" I don't let things that piss me off go very easily.. You will always hear how i feel if your doing something dumb.. even though im from NY i have respect for others... FTW

A lot of things really piss me off about people on the mountain.

- Skiiers who make wide S-turns right in my path. I slow down so I don't hit them and they block me from going past them.
- Snowboarders who aren't aware of their blind spots and make random turns or drift to one side when you are passing by.
- People who sit infront of or at the bottom of park features. For fucks sakes this is probably the most dangerous thing you could do
- Mass crowding at the top of the lift from snowboarders who don't just quickly strap in and go. If you must sit around and socialize at the top of the lift make sure there is a clear path for people to get through.
- People who knock my board in the lift line. One guy even thought it was funny to hit my shiny new board with his ski pole. he didn't think it was so funny when i pushed him into the fencing.
- People who ride goofy and want to rest their board on their other foot when everyone else on the lift rides regular, they knock everyone elses boards around for the sake of their comfort.
- People who smoke a J on the chair and don't offer you a toke

I hate snowboarders who don't shoulder check their heelside. Some guy doing lazy S turns on blues in front of me, I wait, pick a spot to pass, then right as I'm parallel to him, he decides to make a traverse into the trees and hits me. C'MON NOW.

Don't mind me but, it's not their responsibility if they are in front of you to look up the hill when going down the mountain, only when merging with another trail. It's up to you to be cautious when getting around them.

- People who DO smoke the J on the lift instead of waiting to get off. I put up with smoke my entire life, I do not want to put up with it when I'm trying to enjoy my time on the mountain. Do it in your own personal "bubble zone"
