Damn Skiers!
 
Finally a place to let all that anger out. Vent all that built up anger towards ignorant skiers (or even snowboarders for that matter)
Tell stories of pure disregard for courtesy or common sense. Skier kept cutting you off? They took up the entire run as their new 4 lane wide turning zone? Yell something about those "Damn Snowboarders" as they ran away from an accident they caused. Tell us about it.

Oh wow - wasn't another thread posted about this recently?

I snowboard and ski. No love for me? :)

This one time, I was on a lift with a skier, and he pulled down the freaking bar! :dunno:

You ever have them pull it down as fast as they can and crack you a good one in the back of the head and just ignore it? Story of my life!

I dont hate skiers! I hate some skier's actions! as probably you see both sides of the spectrum.

They ALWAYS do this!

The bar down thing doesn't bother me ONLY if they have wiggly little kids with them but unless it's that or they're sketched by heights, leave it up!

This! Yes, if there are kids, I don't mind the bar, as their parents probably have taught them that they need to have the bar down... if it's an adult, I'm not quite as loving. Especially since it's super hard to get your board up on the foot rest

I agree also. Kids are a good excuse for the bar. I also hate when they take up both of the middle rests so you cant put your board up to relax.

You know whats worse than sitting in front of rollers? Sitting on the blind side so when I front 3 it I land right on top of you:cheeky4:
I also hate when a group of about 5 people that are a family all go into the park and just go off the sides off the kickers for all the rails or pile up at the drop in for a jump, speed check the entire way down, don't even come CLOSE to clearing it, slam, complain about how screwed the jump was, take 5 minutes to collect themselves and their skies, and finally have the next member do the exact same thing.

It always seems like there are more tool-bags on skis, because that's what people rent when they are on their once a year ski trip to breck =[

I do both, but I have been neglecting the ski's this year..
My buddy puts the bar down, but he is afraid of heights - which is weird because he goes heli-skiing in alaska a couple times a year.
