So I'm one of those anal people who doesnt like someone standing 6 inches behind me in line (gas station, grocery, movie, etc), ur next, regardless of space, back the fuck up. Needless to say the lift line drives me nuts everytime a ski clicks my topsheet, not because I care about my board, but because I dont like motherfuckers up in my grill.

After struggling for so long to not be a complete asshole, I finally got the perfect line:

"I'm sorry bro, am I in your way?"

Came off the cuff but as soon as I said it was so perfect. Guy looked at me like he just pooped his pants, "no, go ahead."

"Gee thanks."

Too lazy to read the whole thread. But who hates skiers that block the exit of a side hit!

Turn, stop and talk, turn, stop and talk ... hate those skiers.

I totaly agree with the fact that it sucks if skiers stand still and block the whole run.

Mostly I'm like what the fuck and start yelling at them in my native language (Flemish). I noticed that yelling in your native language really helps in foreign countries to get them moving. Ofcourse most of you guys in America won't have this problem as you all speak English

Yeah I hate that.. They always seem to stop at the top of nice steep run right infront of the part you want to fly off of at 40-50 mph. (Typically the sides, I'd prefer if they stopped in the middle.. single file instead of blocking the whole run)

I've cussed quite a few of them out or ran over their ski's/board just out of spite. if you need to stop go in the fucking trees or behind/infront a sign or something.

Damn Skiers!

my like 4th day I was in line and undoing my bindings when a young girl skier ran right into me at a good 7-10 mph I lost my balance and fell into another skier and bent her pole in half. lol I thought it karma for being a skier...

I hate riding behind a group of skiers, especially when they spread out over the entire width of the trail so they can travel the mountain horizontally and not leave any room to pass them unless you time it perfectly. Their turns are hard to predict (despite me being a former skier), they're movements are harder to read than a snowboarders.

Ski patrols should also take a more aggressive stance of escorting pizza wedgers (and side slippers) back to the bunny hill. Nothing worse than watching some clueless gaper push the little snow that we do have down the hill.

Skiers complain about how boarders "wreck the snow" but it doesn't seem to occur to them that snowplow skiers do exactly the same thing.
