DONT go in the park unless you can comfortably ride harder blues and some blacks. I see kids in the park all the time that cant even get down a black and they are trying to do shit in the park. This is probably the thing that pisses me off most, you have to learn to ride before you can do tricks.

On one hand I agree learn to "ride" before you hit the park, but on the other hand blacks? Seriously? Last time I checked, rails werent located on steeps.

Don't try anything to far out of your comfort zone, stay out of other people's way, and always be aware of whether or not you can be seen by others.

I dont like it when people yell at others in the park. It just bums me out.

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?
Ive been riding at bear for like 5 years now and usually at bear no one trips out if you bomb down as long as you bomb down without hurting or messing up anyone, because usually hikers take forever to go ! and if your bombing it takes like 3 seconds to hit any feature and be out the way.

If you do want to pow-wow, get your ass as FAR to the side of the park / trail as you possibly can.
i agree times a million. ^^

also i hate when skiers or even some boarders just roll through the park not waiting their turn and then they just ride up and over the jumps fucking up the lip.

I think my biggest pet peeve is the new generation of kids who have no respect. one place here has a slow handle tow, it sucks, because it takes forever for your turn to come, but then kids just cut in front of you, and if you want to make sure you get up the hill, you have to crowd in and then they run your board over. I had just gotten a new board and it is all nicked up now because they don't understand how to form a line and wait.

My problem is with the hecklers, people are out riding the park to advance their skills and improve their riding but most importantly to have fun and at my park, there is at least one group if kids there to just make fun of people who bail. Im 19 years old, I rode for two seasons when I was 13 and 14 and picked up snowboarding again this season late January and consider myself a good rider, no prodigy but good enough to blend in and hold my own with most of the guys at my park and if I, or anyone else I see on the hill bails or lands sloppy on any trick, there is at least one kid, or person my age, which is sad, that is there to point and laugh. Not that I care, but there is nothing that bothers me more on the park than people who dont respect other peoples effort and safety. Its one thing to avoid looking out for other peoples well being on the park, but its an entirely different thing to make fun of somebody for trying.
