If anyone has been riding in Quebec, you know how anoying the french skiiers in the park are. I usualy don't mind them but alot of them think there amazing at life and cut in line at the lift, cut in line at the park and just basicaly not make it fun. I was doing a boardslide on a box and some skiier just jumps on the box like I'm not there. Who does that. All I can say is if someones hiting something, wait you're turn.

Couple things to add that will really help.

DO NOT go through the park unless you're gonna actually hit the jumps. You're just taking up space if you're just ridin' through.

While you're at the top, pick your line and stick to it. What I mean by line is the series of jumps and hits you'll be going off of consecutively. Most parks have a nice flow built into them with different lines. Try to stick with the parks actually lines and don't cross over from one to the other. For instance, you hit the jump on the right, then right away cut all the way over to the left for another hit. Somebody might be on the left and you cutting in front of the landing could ruin the day.

If you HAVE to hike, get out of the way and don't tromp around in the landing and run in areas.

Do NOT side slip up the jump or ANYWHERE in the run in. Decide what hit you're going for, commit and go for it. Otherwise, you're gonna mess up all the hard work the park crew puts in to those jumps and you're gonna piss off those that are hitting the stuff. This will also help you land jumps better. Second guessing your self makes you fall. Confidence makes you land.

Always look around, left, right, and behind you. You never know when somebody's comin' in hot.

And if there's a beginner park at your resort, stick to that until you're comfortable.

Last but not least... learn to ride a snowboard before you hit the park. Not just on easy groomers. Actually ride. It will help you temendously.

Amen to that brother... I cannot tell you how much it pisses me off when people cut me off then fall in front of a jump.... You do that you are ASKING to get your @$$ chewed out. And if you want to get chewed out... its easier just to ask me to do it then to cut me off ;-). Last season I broke my arm on opening day because some asshole skier cut me off in front of a trash can. Needless to say I finished the day.

If you do want to pow-wow, get your ass as FAR to the side of the park / trail as you possibly can.
i plowed a group of 13 year old suburban skater punks with their burton vapors for sitting in front of the kinked rail once.
I white roomed their disrespectful asses

Now normally I'd agree with this, but wouldn't you agree that the first time at any unfamiliar park you should run through it first so you don't run into any nasty surprises?

Soooo true. I spent 90% of my first season pushing myself on the mountain before I even dared to hit the park. I can't tell you how many people I see almost kill themselves because after 2 hours on a board they think they're Shaun White.

I've found that, as in life, in the park you have to give respect to earn it. Everybody is there to have fun and progress. If you have been to any skate parks, treat it like that but on a downward slope; i.e. give a shout-out when someone lands something you notice they have been trying a couple times, be aware of other peoples' intents as far as their lines, and if you do screw somebody up, have the cajones to admit to it and apologize.

I only noticed it once when Snowwolf mentioned it, but I'd like to restate it: ALWAYS stop and ask someone if they need help if they wipe out. It may interfere with your run, but they could have seriously hurt themselves and don't know it yet. I cracked my head once in a bad fall and didn't realize I was hurt bad until I tried to keep going. I had blurred vision and I lost my balance completely. I had to crawl off the slope and behind some snow fencing and no one stopped and even ASKED if I was ok. I laid there on my back for 20 minutes and still no one stopped.

Even if it means stopping your awesome run, please, if you see someone take a nasty spill, just ride by and ask, "You ok?" Even if they say they are ok, make sure they can stand up and help them get their gear if they pitched a yard sale.

It may not be a rule, but it is common decency and if you can't show another person some common decency don't expect any in return. I'm sure most, if not all, of the people on this board would help because I haven't met anyone on here that seems like a total wanker, so I'm probably preaching to the choir. Still, if you're just browsing the board, this is one of the most important threads to read in my opinion. Snowboarding without knowing etiquette is like driving without knowing what all the signs mean.
