If you fall getting of the lift, get out the way...don't just sit there making no attempt to get out the way looking like a deer-in-headlight..or worse..don't just stand there

November needs to hurry up and come

park etiquette... watch out for yourself and never depend on anyone to help you out.

Back in the day, people would help each other. But then some loser would make his way in and really cripple someone.

nowadays no one helps and no one cares. The etiquette has changed and so have the features.

there always tomorrow to hit it, and theres always next year. 90% of the shit that has happened to me has been caused by other riders/skiers.

(alright, i take it back, 100% of what has happened to me has happened because of skiiers)

Park passes don't do shit, you still have clueless fucks all over the place. Mountain Creek requires them to ride South Peak but 1) No one checks for them 2) You can ride over to South Peak from other trails and 3) The rules aren't enforced.

You'll see gaper families on the weekends weaving and stopping on features at the last second, snaking without look and side airing approaches. There is even a question you have to answer on the multiple choice test about what to do when realizing a feature is beyond your ability level with the correct answer being "ride around it and do not get in other riders' way."

Even more gay are the mountain that have the gall to charge for their park passes. That's insult on top of injury, a punch in the nuts and a poke in the eyes.

today my friend ate shit hard on a jump and couldn't get up. i unstrapped and yelled at everyone waiting to not come down, and they definitely heard me because a few gestured to show that they'd wait. So i started walking up the MIDDLE of the jump with my board. next thing i knew there was a swish behind me, and i saw a kid skiier who had been waiting head down towards the jump. i yelled at him to stop 3-4 times, but instead of turning away he headed straight towards the jump, around me and off of it, missing landing my friend by a foot or less and spraying her.
the things i wanted to do to that kid..

I finally made it to the lift with people just staring at me... thankfully one of the dumb lift op's called a snow mobile to take me up. What ever happened to the friendly midwest people?? When I was learning at mammoth, id get swarms of people asking if I was OK when I fell... I too always ask people if their good that fall and don't get out of the way right away.
From what I see a lot of midwest boarders can just be major douchebags who care only about them selves I ride at chestnut and you see a lot of them.

Leave your poser huge headphones in your mom's car, you cant hear the people yelling "droppin in", then you cut them off and carry on like nothing happened. I personally think they should ban headphones at resorts, seen way to many close calls.

So I'm watching my snowboardaddiction videos (sitting here waiting for the damned snow to fall) and partway through the Nev Park Lap I realize he buzzes some 10 year old skier who is shuffling slowly right across the park line. Dunno how many times I've watched that and didn't notice it.
