Wachusett rangers are jerks

So I was at wachusett the other night and the ranger (not ski patrol but some saftey guys) come up and tell me to move my ass off the trail normally id be like oh sorry but I was with a buddy (skier) who was right next to me didnt say a word to him justasked how his night was then later he come down yelling "all snowboarders better stay out of the skiers way they belong here unlike you" then later he rips me a new one for trying to teach a friend to board because I was hurting the sport of skiing and violated mountain rules. Anyone else ever deal with these guys? sorry for venting I'm pretty pissed

Get his name next time and report his bad attitude to management. There's no rule against teaching a friend how to board. There are rules against getting paid to teach people how to board.

Are you forgetting my run in with Keystone Mountain Watch and Ski Patrol where they both told me snowboarders had no place on the mountain?

Get his name. I highly doubt he would not be fired for that.

mmm i was at wachusett on friday teaching my girl how to ride and that place really does suck. lift lines are ridiculous, runs take 3min, 5 if people get in your way. their park is freaking horrible!
i mean i dont expect it to be the best hill, but ive been to small hills before and still had fun, wachusett not so much everything is poorly planned.
