I was at Plattekill Mountain, NY about three weeks ago and they have a small park there that anyone can use (ie. no park pass). So me and my friend are waiting to drop in to this rail, and there is this little girl on skis, just standing at the lip of the rail (was a ride-on-rail). We ended up skipping that rail and coming back down again 5-10min later. She was still there but her dad and im guessing her siblings were there too. Their father was taking turns carrying them over the rail and landing them at the bottom...I was speechless I didnt know what to do! LOL

A buddy and I were riding the small terrain park at Snoqualmie Central last week and these little idiots were sitting in THE LANDING of a jump, having a fucking coffee break. My buddy didn't see them and almost landed on one, hurting his shoulder....you'd think it would be common sense to not chill in a spot that people going high speeds with no breaks would be landing. I just don't get it. My buddy also mentioned it to the park staff, who surprisingly didn't do or say a damn thing.

I haven't seen this mentioned but seems like common courtesy to me.

If you see someone fall off a feature to the side of it, you should wait until they are COMPLETELY clear of the feature. Even if you know you can clear the
feature. I see this happen often. Newbie falls off rail to the side, tailgating rider cant possibly wait the 5 seconds for newbie to clear feature and hits rail with newbie inches away.

One of my favorites are the times where you are sitting at a drop in point that is really far from the jumps. So you sit and wait to make sure it is clear, then some idiot or little kid on skis takes your opportunity to go fuck up on the jump in one way or another. Then as soon as they move, some other jackass takes your turn by dropping from behind without stopping. Rinse and Repeat. And repeat. And repeat. And repeat. And repeat....

Some people need to learn how to just snake people and have control.

1) Dont spectate or lounge on the knuckles.

2)a) If you fall, then get the fuck out of the way. Probablilty is that you didnt break anything off that mini rail.
2)b) If you fall on a large feature, be sure to be visible or note someone that you are hurt so that nobody rides over you in the landing

3) I will snake you if you take far too long to drop
4) Don't be stupid and obnoxious. Everyone in the park just wants to chill out and focus on having a fun day.

Get out of the way, suck it up. Crawl. That's what i've been taught.

Good in theory but if there is something seriously wrong moving could screw it up that much more.If you are seriously injured, get someone's attention and have them block the feature and get the patrol.No sense making a bad situation even worse just so someone else can hit the feature.
