Also, if your mountain has a training session like Stratton and such, ACTUALLY pay attention to that movie. it has alot of really good things to keep in mind while riding. I always keep "Easy Styling" in my mind

oh oh, and do not tail gate people. I think there is an entire thread on that exact problem right now. If you follow too closely to people, it can really throw them off.

What should you do if you fall and you really can't get out of the way? Like if you're seriously injured, can't move, or really need a couple of seconds to catch your breath or let the endorphins kick in and cover up the pain?

It's always a tough decision. If it really hurts that bad im suspecting youd probably be screaming pretty loud, so hopefully people will hear you

if it is not horrible crawl away, and to the left preferably.

on my last trip one thing really bugged me, the people that would just ride into the park and go, completely bypassing tne group waiting their turns to go. we spent a few days just hiking the park. hit our 4 rails, unstrap, hike back up, do it all over again and always get in the back of the line, which was usually only 4 people long anyways, but every two or three hours, this group of 2-3 cats would bomb into the park, not even slow down at the first waiting area, and hit the rail line we were doing, worst part was they weren't even any better than we were, but you could tell they 'thought' they were by the way the entered the park.

QFT! i had a bad fall, broke some bones, and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't unstrap or stand up, I was just stuck in the middle of a run. several people rode past without even looking my way. finally someone helped me unstrap and I was able to stand up barely and flag down a patrol on ski mobile. Now I always pay extra attention to others that have fallen, and have helped out a few.

I actually find hiking to be somewhat rude in some cases. Often when it comes to groups of 5 or so hiking they end up making it a steady stream even if you try to call a hit, so you usually have to snake to get your hit. Biggest problem among this however is hitting an obstacle with extra speed to do something extra special on it (gapping parts for example) when the hikers simply go the shortest distance possible. The specific instance I recall from this season would be the double rollercoaster box which I was trying to gap from one hump's top to the down of the next and there was about six kids just hiking it trying that lame ass thing where someone unstrapped spins them once they're on the box and none of them were landing anything. I figured it would be no biggie I was going to be there all day and they'd only keep it up for a few runs, well I was wrong, they were there until 4 hours or so before close. To end on a happy note however, in those four hours I got the gap.

Thanks for all the info.

I had no idea there was etiquette in the park, since I just started to ride it. The two major places here in SoCal are Bear Mountain and Mt. High, where the whole place is a park, and nobody hikes.

The one time I saw a small park section was in Alpine Meadows in Tahoe. I had no idea people hiked up to ride the 50-yard park they had. So the last run I did that day, I was just bombing down the mountain and rode right into the park. I managed to hit one box, then ate shit on a jump.

That was my bad, I didn't know there was a calling system and such. Do you fall in line?

[QUOTE=AAA;47609]Have enough control that you don't hold yard sales at the bottom of jumps. Don't bleed on tables and boxes. Don't leave dislocated teeth laying next to a rail.


hahahahaha I agree!!!!!
