It was crystal

I rode the lift up with 2 other ski patrol people and heard their radios
One of the people talking on there said "hey mountain cops we need someone to close and guard the southgate"

The guys I rode up with where cool, but really?
Mountain cops???

Whatever, they're obviously full of them selves.

I actually did good, helped a dude find a missing ski
He was freaking out because his skies got separated, I was like "hey, is that it?"

I wasn't going to make waves, I am considering finding another ski resort to snowboard at though.
Don't waste your time there isn't another mt for you. You're already in GH and having trouble getting to Crystal, good luck getting to Stevens.

They could've been saying that tongue-in-cheek.

Show us your jacket.

Why not try get a badge that would cover the cross. send the brand of your jacket an email and tell them what happened and see what they suggest. Its worth an email and you never know what could come of it.

I trained with patrol for 2 seasons, and they are very sticky about this. It was drilled into the trainees time and again, you must maintain control, no features, no jumps...no fun!! And yeah, they are pretty serious about jackets too, one of the guys I was training with had bought a patrol jacket, and they wouldn't let him wear it on the hill. Also, no stickers on your helmet or board.

The reason you don't see many patrollers on snowboards is cause it's a bitch to drag a sled down the hill behind a board. I will say this, pulling 200+ lbs. down the hill will make you up your game, my technical riding skill progressed exponentially over those 2 seasons. Oh and the consequences of falling are way more severe, you bail in front of that sled and it can kill you.

Had a similar issue, wearing a red "686" Jacket at a resort where the Patrol wore Red. The Guy was obviously in the mood to bust balls. He asked me in the future to not wear red to avoid confusion. I explained, I wore red for safety reasons and pointed out "a fashionable" snow bunny dressed in all white. After it took him 30+ seconds to find her camouflaged in the snow, He understood my point and let me be.

That guy seems like a tard, at least the ski patrol I got talked to by had a reason....

I'm thinking that they want to believe that their the law on the hill.

I could have said Fuck you get me a new coat or I'm going to keep wearing this one, but I didn't
I will be wearing my new jacket next time I go.

I understand where the ski patrol is coming from (red is their color), but if there isn't a rule saying no red jackets then I would try to get something out of switching. Have him call a manager; I doubt the resort will buy you a new jacket, but maybe you can ge them to give you like 50% off or something. This way they are happy you're not wearing a red jacket, and you're happy you got a sweet deal.

Give them a speach about visibility&safety, and the cost of a new jacket.
