The Frogger "Cure"

I think I discovered the cure to this side-slipping/wedger frogger debacle situation. Was bombarded yet again by side-slipping shit-eating noobs and in powder no less!!! So not only were they sideslipping all over the place, they were eating all sorts of shit. 3 asshacs didn't make it out of the gates back to the lift and decided to post up side x side, leaving room for only one person to make it through that side of the gate!! There were several various other incidents that perpetuated this situation. i think i discovered a temporary remedy to the situation (until I can fashion my "move bitch get out the way" loud speaker). This was an experimental joke derived out of desperation and frustration that worked well (at least this once.) I saw this group of sideslippers when i dropped back in to the run, was patient and avoided, but this lasted only so long. Finally, i really needed to get the fuck through them back to the run...so... I just started screaming "aaagh aaagh aaagh" really loudly and waving my arms as if out of control...they stopped dead in their tracks and looked, waited and i cruised on through and said thanks and threw up a peace sign (okay okay, one sat down cause he was startled)

Every turn is a blessing.

lol that was like one big run on sentence.

Noobs do piss me off now and then but i do remember just a season ago i was there in that place. Now again, if they're on the blues and blacks, then yeah. Nothing is more aggrivating than watching some dude sideslip all the way down the steeps.. especially out here where that will uncover the ice pretty damn quickly.

Noobs are irratating. Especially when they fall before they even hit the jump.

No, they were lined up tip to tail and it was like a giant D-9 Cat bulldozing the entire run.....

I did`nt hold my tongue and rode over to them and told them to have the decency to falling leaf the run so they did`nt ruin it for everyone else.
Lol. Maybe they should send noobs with flashlights up the hill to groom the moguls. Would save the resorts a lot of money!

What irritates me the most about those people who sideslip down the mountain is when you hear them talking about how they're going down blues and blacks already. Makes me want to say, "but you're side slipping the entire time!"

Not only that but when I go bombing around that sharp corner and there's your slow-slide-slipping ass hogging the entire lane or worse yet sitting in the middle trying to make a call on their cell phone.

But I can't be hating on the noobs. Not too long ago I was there myself but at least I had the decency to recognize my skill level (or lack off).

I pretty much can bomb blues.. blacks still get me a little uneasy.. so i try to do as clean turns as possible though so i'm not pushing all the snow down the hill.

People on cell phones on the hill piss me off. If you really need to be on the phone, invest in a damn bluetooth. If I'm making a call, i make sure I'm all the way over to the one side...

The only time side slippers and beginners irritate me is when they are in way over their heads or when they're not considerate. When I was just getting started, I knew I needed to take up most of the run and that I couldn't maintain a lot of speed. When I got in a crowd, I'd simply get over to the side and stop and let the crowd move on, then I'd fall in behind them. I wouldn't do what most of these asshats do and continue to take up the entire run while everyone else had to weave and dodge to get by my flailing ass.

I also agree about the newbies who boast about handling blacks and tougher blues when they're simply in survival mode. If you're just side slipping a run, you're not learning. Head to an easier run so that you can actually work on developing.

But, at the same time, nearly every time I'm up, I see someone be an asshole or joke a beginner simply trying to learn on a green run or an easy blue. These are the people I'd like to punch in the fucking face. Listen asshole, every single one of us were there at some point. Encourage the beginners who are out there trying to learn and are having fun and being respectful. I make it a point to throw out some words of encouragement to at least one beginner every time I ride.

Yeah I've seen quite a few inconsiderate non-newbies moving way too fast through the "slow skiing"/beginner areas. Come on guys, have a little respect...

Unfortunately I have been spending a lot of quality time on the bunny hill with my little one.....it's actually quite entertaining.....

For the newbs slipping.......I blame the resorts..they need to do a better job of scaring the shit outta the newbs so they don't try going where they don't belong.....
