What mountain in Vancouver (Grouse, Cypress, Seymour) is best for beginner park riders? As once i get my new board I plan on learning to ride park and jumps.

There's 2 or 3 kids at our resort that are hiking the same rails me and my friends have been riding. EVERY DAMN TIME, they drop their board infront of the group of riders waiting to drop (it's kinda a narrow drop-in) and strap in. I told this kid at least 3 times yesterday to knock it off and him and his friend still do it.


Other than that it's the people in the lift lines that can't stop themselves from moving forward and school ski club kids that don't know to respect others on the slopes.

That would piss me off to no end. It's the type of thing that if it happens once while waiting I'd shout out "oh I guess there's no fucking line today." Then if it happens again I'd just wait for them to sit down and start strapping in then I'd move up and sit down in front of them.

The ski patrol douche bags at Perfect North Slopes in Southern Indiana that are arrogant and rude because they are "ski patrol" and so cool They constantly group up in a circle jerk of about 10 or 20 standing around or go down the same run together versus fanning out and patrolling all of the runs. My favorite is when they practice taking their little emergency sled down the center of one of the runs during the most busy times and clog up the run and lift line.
It honestly cracks me up how cool they think they are. Today, I was riding alone and asked one of the female patrollers if I could ride up with her and another patroller on a triple chair...she just stared at me, so I got in line with them anyway since it was crowded and pretty much a free for all in the line, which is typically the case with this place, then to top it off another D bag patroller line hops right where you get on the chair and tells me he wants to ride up with the other patrollers. Not a big deal except now I'm in everyones way behind me and need to find someone else to ride up with...what a cluster!
Don't get me wrong, I am not bagging on ski patrollers in general, just the ones at this hill...if they acted like this out West, I doubt they would be welcome at the resort. I've had conversations on the lift at Perfect North with many of these patrollers and I have only met 1 that genuinely seemed nice and personable and not an arrogant douche.

I haven't been to Cypress, but Grouse is better than Seymour for beginners. The Paradise jib park actually has beginner-level stuff, and the terrain run at the side of the Cut last year had several small jumps appropriate for learning on. Seymour just doesn't have that.

To be stuck on a lift, early morning in a powder day.

Those days when you seem to have to piss every 10 minutes.

I don't know about you guys but it pisses me off when you're expecting a good day and then you get this massive stomach ache before you even strap on.
