What makes a resort bad is if dudes sell their half used lift tickets in the parking lot. It really cripples the entire operation.

word, especially sucks for us midwest riders, however thats what i sometime end up doing, just walking, last year my local resort had proably one of the worst park setups in history. only 1/4 of the run was park, and the rest was an icy black diamond, loose park boards+ icy black diamond=not fun. So me and a bunch of other park junkies didnt buy a ticket, just spent the whole day hiking the small amount of park

Wow. Can't believe that guy on the box didn't break his lead leg.

From the suggested videos:
YouTube - Skier hanging from ski lift

I know we've had controversial discussions about what defines a gaper on this forum. However, ladies and gentlemen, that right there IS A GAPER! Indisputable.
