No it's not weird. NSP has some protocol somewhere I'd have to dig up if I felt compelled to but frankly I don't give a fuck about uniforms. The point is red with a white cross = NSP regardless if they use the red/black/white or the red/white it's still a symbol of help to the average Joe. Dude was just pointing out the possibility for confusion nothing more.

1. Get a red Sharpie.
2. Color over the cross.

Not sure if its worth going to war over either. I"m a guy that doesn't make waves but if I'm accused of something that I feel I"m not wrong on or didn't do I'll go down with a huge fight. Don't think this is the case but your call

Not sure how expensive or if this is your fav jacket but you could just simply remove the cross.
Stitch removal tool so you don't damage the material. Might leave the holes behind but over time the threads will swell with moisture and close up.

They might as well ban all red colored jackets because form a quick glance it "might" look like a ski patrol person. They cant press any legal charges so talk to a manager and tell them to deal with it.
Unfortunately most places reserve the right to kick you out for anything and really they could have a point with this one.

This is what I would do and if they said anything again tell them to give you some tape to put over it. If they say no, ask for a manager cause they are just being dicks.

This is true and something to keep in mind if you decide to go to war about it. This ISN'T about your constitutional rights. The resort doesn't have to sell you a ticket. And the resort will almost certainly side with the patrol if it escalates to that point. You could, if you're dickish enough, end up being banned entirely.

It's good to stand up for yourself, but some battles simply aren't worth fighting. Your call.

I already had a new jacket on the way, I do agree that the should have at least come up with a jacket for me to use the rest of the day.

I wasn't going to make waves, I am considering finding another ski resort to snowboard at though.

The other issue....you were riding bad ass and they did not want to have a ski patrol be associated with such a frickin gnarls showing them up doing crazy like 3 ollie over ropes to tail tap the sticks to cliff drop; and generally haulin ass down groomers; they were afraid of some tourist might report that a patroller was out of control.

Same reason why cops don't like when you dress like them and drive a crown Vic.

Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.

What ski area was it? There are some asshole ski patrol guys out there but most of them are just trying to keep you safe. To be honest though, the oly place in Washington that I have ever had a bad encounter patrol was at crystal. It is like they think they are cops or something
