I guess I'm the oddball out. I wouldn't find it rude to yell at someone to get out of the landing area. We're not talking about politely needing to get past someone on a bus or something. We're talking about someone in the way who could easily cause me a major injury. Further, most of the people in the landing area are being rude and inconsiderate in the first place.

I wouldn't be harsh to an obvious newbie. However, for the riders who perform a perfect carve only to stop right in the landing area, they deserve a harsh yelling because politeness probably didn't work for them in the past!!!

Fuck it be an asshole. Case in point I roll in to the park after making pow laps all morning I've got my pow rocket and I see this guy getting ready to hit jump 1. He tucks into 1 full speed which is a huge no no, over shoots it, and does a half flip and disappears. We figure he's dead about 3 minutes later he's crawling up the side of jump 2 and unstraps. So I figure I'm safe to hit some jumps like I usually do on my final run home hit 1 fine, go to hit 2 and realize dumbass isn't on the side of the jump so I go around the right side of the lip, and guess who is walking behind the lip where you can't see him fucking retard. I flipped shit and told him to get his ass out of the medium park it's too big for him.

I wish more people were pricks to douches in the park it saves lives and knees.

the more i see how valuable it is to have a non-injured body the more pissed i will become @ these people.

now that i think about it. "not knowing any better" is actually BS cause there is a huge sign in the front of the park telling about the rules of the park and these fools ignore it and people get hurt because of it.

Too Fast!

Park douches are why I rarely ever dip into the park and I stay well the fuck away on the weekends.
Good advice! Also good to share with your kids that are trying to learn to ride park. If you bail, get up and get out of the way.

Similarly, I once saw a guy and his family taking a break sitting down in the middle of a run on the other side of a hill at Copper, not visible to those riding from above him...not good.

I said something to him like "Probably not the best place to sit", but I'm pretty sure he thought I was being an A-hole. It would have sucked if an out of control rider/skier would've mowed over him and his family- I suppose it would be the other person's fault probably for not seeing them.

I joked with our Park Crew for next season I'm going to make a huge die cut sticker that says These Features Will Kill You and put it on the sign in big black bold letters it should be a good deterrent.

Strangely enough, although I'm new to this, I would never just chill on the other side of a jump where there's an OBVIOUS blind-spot for those attempting. If I eat-shit I GTFO ASAP! Once I've collected myself!

There was a child (tiny), zipping around the M/L Terrain Park and you couldn't see him, anywhere... Most of the people were shouting, not at the child, but at the parents, who were following... meekly behind. The child was at the blind-spot after a jump and a skier came charging on down, over and WHAM... Not a good sight... Luckily no one was badly injured, still... WHAT'S WRONG W/ PEOPLE?!

Those parents were GRILLED until they left!

There are always the odd few who hold themselves for a minute or two when after 'failing', so now when I'm in the TP I have mates spot-check for me before I head on in. Safe for me. Safe for you.

Either that or make up a bunch of gaper stickers and smack them on the persons board/skis.

Wouldn't hurt except Bear/Summit the only hope down there is to bring a tazer and just fry fuckers left and right. Seriously the most chaotic resorts I've ever ridden.
