skier dad ran in to me while strapping in last sunday, told me, "That was a bad spot to put your foot..." and he was dead fucking serious. Are you fucking kidding man? You run in to me and then tell me it's my fault because of where I put my foot? How bouts you don't ski so close to someone who's obviously prepping to strap in that you can't stop in time to avoid them? It's not like I jumped in front of him, I put my foot behind my board to bend over & wipe out the ice/snow from the footbed... Told him I had the right of way according to the code and he just said "Sure you do. Sure you do" as he skied away I held back, only because I was riding with my 9yo nephew at the time.
99/100 times when someone bumps me or whatever they apologize, and I'm totally cool with that. Shit happens, you know. But don't ski in to me and then blame me for it!
What upsets me most about the situation is that you just know this is the type of asshole old skier who will take this incident and validate his opinion that all snowboarders are punk ass kids that don't deserve to be on the same mountain.
If I could've punched him in the throat and gotten away with it I would have.
