I can't recall any really noteworthy conversations but I find it peculiar that people are willing to discuss very personal stuff next to a stranger. For example, a lady was talking to her coworker about having an affair on her husband, hoping he wouldn't find out. Hey, I can hear you speaking because I'm 6" away from you and you have no idea who I am or if I know anyone who knows your husband.

i was on a chair lift with these collage kids. I was minding my own business and i heard them talking. i got curious and lowered my music. This girl starting taking about wanting to get her nipple pierced. The guy was saying he wanted his ear pierced and that if he pierced his ear she would pierce her nipple. Then she said how she has always wanted an excuse to pierce her nipple. All together it was just a wierd conversation.

Nothing too weird, but I once rode up with this middle aged woman sitting next to me. To begin with she was pleasant enough, said hi and such. She inquired about my family, so I made the mistake of asking if she was up there with her family. She whips out a pic (regular photo, mind you) of her grandchild so fast, it made my head spin . And she goes into verbal diarrhea about her grandchild, daughter in law, son, etc. All lame stuff, nothing snarky but WAY TMI. Was glad when it was time to get off .

Last season it was a guy who was so drunk I'm not even sure how he made it on and off the lift. The whole time he talked about how much he had to drink that day and how when he rides he leaves his girlfriend at the lodge. Apparently, every time he rides she sits in the lodge all day by herself.

I also managed to catch the lift with a group of guys I saw in the park two or three runs earlier. I remembered them because one of the dudes went head first into the ice after hitting a small kicker. I noticed I was sitting next to the guy when his buddy started showing him a video of the yardsale. I asked the guy if he was ok (he was riding a rental with no helmet), he looked over at me with a totally glazed look on his face and showed me the roadrash looking ice burn on his face from sliding on his face down the hill. I took that as a "no".

oh snap.

Poor chomps sure gets it around here.

I actually am one of very few people to have ridden a lift with him and survived. I can vouch for him, the creepy factor doesn't translate to the analog world. haha

Was on last week in MI with a soccer mom, of all people!

She was complaining about how the beginner hill was apparently too steep for her kids. I said it looked fine and she started bitching at me for saying something "unsafe" about her kids. It got annoying. Too annoying. So about halfway up the lift I started strapping in so I'd be able to get away from her quickly when we got off, and of course, she started bitching at me even more. "Oh my gosh! It's unsafe to do that on the chairlift!" I didn't bring my board up on the lift or anything (which could've made it dangerous for her); I just stayed in position, held the back bar with my right hand and worked the ratchets with my left hand.
Still she bitched at me but I got away and luckily didn't come across her for the rest of the day. The other people I spoke with on the lift there were quite nice.
