My experience thus far is that the more advanced park rats have the least amount of etiquette... Regardless of how impressive their style is, I still don't think they should zoom past the 6 others waiting in line to drop... jeez

I know what you mean, just a couple days ago i was sitting in the drop waiting for my turn, and some kid comes flying out of no where. trys to hit some stupid little pile of snow against a shed to the side of the drop zone, and ends up crashing right into me and like two other dudes, didnt even aplogize... and its not like we were hidden, you've gotta use your brain, at least a little.

I know this has been mentioned tons of times but seriously. DO STOP.
I've been in a situation where I've needed help, some of the guys I thought where jerks, stopped by and gave me a hand. Even contacted someone to get a ski patrol member. It was a great help considering my best friend ignored me, got to the top, finished his run then came to see if I was okay.
There was this lil' kid on the bunny hill (we where jumping over cones) and he got himself in an awkward position, calling out for his dad, couldn't see a dad anywhere, skidded off the rope toe to help the guy get his ski's off. Got my fingers trapped.... XD
But Yeah. DO stop, because it makes all the difference.

I am pretty advanced in the park and not gonna lie i have to agree with you, but usually i do it because some kids just stand their waiting too long so i go. If i cut in front and see that another kid has started to go who was ahead of me in line i will usually just go to the side and let him go.

At least i can admit it lol

A kid broke his wrist last night in the park, and I was amazed to immediately see someone block off the kicker.

The biggest thing is be polite. If you see that you accedently snaked someones line, apologize to them, either as they are riding by or at the bottom. Then learn from your mistakes.

Also, make sure to chack your "blind side" (the heel edge side) before you hit any feature to make sure everyone is clear.

Finally, if you are hitting a feature (especially a big jump), watch the people in front of you and make sure you can see them after they have landed. In other words, if you dont see someone after they hit a jump, don't assume that they are just behind the jump further down the hill. Make sure everyone is clear. If someone does fall, make sure that they are OK before you ride on.

Ps. If it is really buisy, ride with a friend. Get your friend to stand by the feature and signal you if you are clear to go.
