I'm sorry but I disagree... It's complete horseshit to run over somebody's gear. Some of us pay a lot of money for, and care about our equipment. If I damage my base on a rock, that's one thing, but for numb nuts to constantly hit the back of my board in line (as if it'll magically make the chair run faster, and therefore the line too) it's inexcusable.

I've learned that most people are oblivious though, so I actually position my board on an angle with the base facing behind me, so that it's a large barrier for them to hit. Once they've run into my board I can't gain anything by giving them shit, so I think it's better to be defensive instead of offensive. lol

My old riding buddy used to get downright aggressive with people. Made me laugh but sometimes he took it too far...

100% this.

Someone that runs over or into your shit but apologizes and obviously did it by accident while not being reckless, no big deal. Shit happens.

The asshole skier constantly all up on your shit and gouging your topsheet with his poles, yeah, I'm gonna say something and I'm probably gonna be a dick about it.

my daughter says i generally look like an unapproachable grumpy old man and now that have badass splitty....i just curise up and snake a slow moving noob mob or just do singles...i don't get many bumps....usually don't say much and try to stay away from the noobs and tourtards. yesterday a couple of noobs in back of me were talking about my splitty and quick release setup...but they did not even attempt to engage me nor ask any questions...its pretty funny...intimidation by appearance.

why are you using a split on the lift? I thought those were for back country and/or pre and post season.

Whle I'm not Wraith, my guess would be that he enjoys riding the inbounds at Baker, but also wants to be able to hike out when he feels like it. Or even ride the lift up, tour in the backcountry, then ride back into the resort and take a chair back up. Rinse and repeat. There's definitely reasons to ride a lift with a split.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

I give them the Death Stare of Death for the longest time. Like, Laser Eye that bitch like I'm Cyclops. Do it for as long as I need to even.

Until I realize I have mirrored lenses and he can't see any of that dangerous, high-level shit... They prolly think I find getting my board hit kinda hot or something... Like I'm about to bring out a Glee song about it for all that staring...
