Default dumbest person you've seen at a resort

Today at the base of peak 9 at breck i saw 2 boarders warming up in the open fireplaces. they set their helmets too close to the flames and they both melted and warped. has anyone seen anything this stupid at a resort?

All the time. I think the stupidiest thing I saw lately was the dumbass on skies that ran into me Sunday while I was teaching and tried to tell me how the responsibility code worked. After relaying to him the facts of the code and how it worked law wise he still wanted to disagree. It took me saying "shut-up, stop talking, you can go away and go ski and realize you need to give better space when riding or I can have ski patrol come down and explain the finer points to you".

Every time I see someone skiing/snowboarding in Jeans, I think "tool".

Every time I see someone skiing/snowboarding in Jeans cut into shorts? "Major D-Bag"

In all honesty though, the most recent dumbass I encountered was this past weekend. I was doing a tail press tail grab and a skier comes flying past me to my right. He skimmed my board and knocked my shoulders. I didn't fall, but that could have been very dangerous. I kept my cool because he was his daughter or maybe a little old wife. I just told him to watch where he is going. He ignored me.

If he wasn't borderline elderly without his daughter around, I definitely would have turned his day into a bad one.

I've seen idiots with their boots on shove them in the fire to warm them up then flip out when they melt to their feet. You name it I've seen it or some form of it on the mountain or in the town. Nothing surprises me anymore.

ummm... hard to say dumbest as recency effect makes me only think of things that happened this season.

i liked the guy who stopped with about 150 feet left of the hill in the middle of the bottleneck for the lift line then took off his board and decided he needed to re-tie his boots.

other dumbest guy was me... poaching this big hill by our resort.. had to take a cross country trial to get there, so i was unstrapped kicking my board ahead of me up a little slope. didn't realize that just over the crest of this 'little hill' was the big hill.... my board went flying down so i ran after it... running down hill fast in snowboard boots is not fun... bailed and started tumbling down...

eventually the board went into some trees and stopped.... as did i.

The stupidest thing I see consistently is people trying to get on the lift with their snowboard in their hands, when plainly everyone else is strapped in

i think the worst ive seen was a guy up at app. mtn. He was obviously new at the sport and everytime i was getting off the lift or about to start a run he would have people help him get his binding straps on. And he would fall off the lift and just lay there holding up everyone on the lift.

Lol, Had the same thing happen during an AASI clinic in Vail last week on the Blue OX trail. Lady came up to our group who were all over to the extreme left of the run. We all just stared at her and she went away when she realized that we outnumbered her.

There was this snowboarder who had absolutely no idea what he was doing on the moguls... It made for a pretty entertaining afternoon...

Oh wait...
