Exclamation What pisses you off on the mountain?

We all get pissed off at least once per day on the mountain, so let out your frustration here! Share whatever irks you and just vent about how it pisses you off.

For me its skiers. Not all skiers, but those damm ones that manage to figure out just where you're about to go, and cut you off. Every single time I go this happens, could not frustrate me more. I try to go wide right, they somehow manage to get ahead of me. They have caused me so much pain and frustration. When I am on easy trails I don't mind, let them learn. But when it gets to the blacks, they shouldn't be there and they certainly shouldn't be cutting everybody off.

That is what pisses me off with 0 cursing , so share what pisses you off. I (and assuming others) would love to hear your stories! Feel free to get as pissed as you like.

1) people cutting me off at the lift ... (I usually let them know)

2) people who stop in the middle of a line, or right around the bend.... (it's okay if you fell down and are getting up, but just stopping for no reason ... GTFO)

3) people who are unpredictable...

4) paranoid blazin high-school kids ....

Just go faster than them.

What pisses me off is when there is a bunch of people waiting to hit a jump or jib and people just cut in from the left or right while someone waits for their turn. The person who skipped the line gets to hit the feature and the person who waited has to skip it or risk going at the same time as the other person. So frustrating especially if your trying something new.....

The completely incompetent park manager at Hidden Valley and the general management that doesn't give a fuck. There is a big air comp tomorrow and the single jump was only built last week. People have had 1 week to get their tricks back before a contest. 5 different jib features sitting off run with plenty of room for them on the run yet nothing being put up. Run ups to jibs that start going up hill 40-50ft before getting to the jib's ramp. Absolutely nothing being set up for beginners in the terrain park. Using the excuse that the snow is too soft to install features when it is all man made snow.

If I'm on the mountain and boarding, then nothing, and I mean nothing is pissing me off. That being said, boarding in the rain is a downer. It doesn't piss me off, but it sure isn't as fun as it should be.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

  1. rain
  2. wind (like hurricane wind)
  3. rain/wind
  4. flats
  5. getting near the top of the lift and having to poop as the lift stops, while the old lady sharing the chair clucks on and on about god-know-what

Removing park features for beginner/intermediate riders.

I spent a full day hitting three 5-10 foot jumps and thought about them for the rest of the week. When I went back up again a week later to try new tricks they were all gone, replaced by 20+ foot behemoths that only a handful of people could hit.
