Ever get your pass pulled?

I was up at Wachusett last friday and was having a great day. The park up there is absolute shit so I found a nice side hit and hit it most of the day. On one of the runs a ski patroller saw me hit it and pulled me over to the side and told me not to do that again. So, a couple of runs later, I was just riding down the trail and bonked a slow sign, and the same ski patroller saw me and told me to follow him to the bottom. When we got there, he took my pass away and told me to leave. So, has anyone else had the horrible experience of getting your pass pulled?

Unless you were a dick to him, it sounds like he overreacted big time. I've never had my pass pulled though.

No, I was cool about it and did everything he said because I always try to help give snowboarding a good reputation. He defenitly overreacted. He was an older man and probably didn't understand what I was doing.

Or he is just one of the skiers that will not accept snowboarding. Sounds like you caught him on a bad day. Id recommend talking to the resort and explaining your situation.

wow that is so whack, over at Bear the only reason you'd get your pass pulled is maybe for blazing on the lift or getting into fights.

You'r just riding tho and doing what is fun for snowboarding...I think you should've complained to someone else working there that hes a complete douchebag

Doesn't sound like you fought it much. Not saying you're downplaying what you did, but if I had my pass pulled for something that I thought was BS, I would have taken it to farther to see if I could plead my case or call the guy out for being an idiot.

yeah I would definitely be a little more upset than you seem.

I would have been requesting to talk to superiors immediately.

If they did that I would fight it all the way asking for supervisor and what not if I know I did nothing wrong. If that still didn't work, I'd take the pass off willingly for them and stick it down my ass before handing it back to them, then they can have it all they want for all I care.

Government - If you think the problems they created are bad, just wait until you see their solutions.

Screw being normal

I would fight it, but that's not the first time i've had my pass pulled at this mountain so I'm pretty sure they would use that against me. The other two times that I got it pulled were for spraying people(thought it would be cool after watching MFM's optimistic part, lol) and riding off the trail through some old growth forest that they have to protect. Besides I got a good 3 hours of riding before I got into this conflict and the conditions sucked anyways.
