Me and a buddy were riding up with a couple @ Mary Jane and they asked us "how do they make all those bumps?" ...he told em they were big plastic humps that the resort brings out every fall and sets up all over the mountain.. then they put em all away in the spring....They responded " that must be a lot of work"
I was doing everything possible to not bust my guts....

Anytime it snows more than 7 inches @ Mt. Bachelor, Oregon.
The management says "Sorry can't get the lift's open Today, Rime on the cable"
My 2nd favorite... "Weather Standby"

"I guess you have to take your skis of for this one." Says a gaper as she skis up to the FUnitel at Squaw.

I was riding up the lift with a buddy of mine, and two other dudes who said they hadn't skied in at least 5-6 years (injury i think). i was finished explaining my fall from the last run when one of the guys leans over and says "What was that trick you were talking about? Double... something... yeah, double-ejecting?"-Hazen-

Heading into a nearly deserted liftline in Utah 2 days ago with the kids. Guy right in front of me suddenly turns his skis completely sideways blocking the entire line while he apparently waits for his tribe. Unable to stop as we were ready to load, I ski across his tails and say, "please don't stop in the middle if the line" (anyone else haver a pet peeve with this shit?). Gaper quote? "Yeah? Well YOU need to look where you're going!"

Riding up in the Cat with my buddy, with Powder Mountain cat Skiing In Whistler. I managed to convince him to drop some coin knowing how shitty the conditions were on the mountain. His big concern was getting some very slow skiers in our group the would effect # of runs as well as the terrain the guides felt comfortable taking us to.
Guide- " so were are you folks from?"
Gaper- " L.A. We're season pass holders at Mammoth."
gaper Wife to guide " so how do they decide what people go in what cat group?"
My buddy gives me the I told you so stare. On the first run the gaper wife clad in black and white alligator print pants takes a solid 5 minutes to cover 500 feet. The Gaper husband completely skis past the Guide and all the way down to the cat without stopping. still with all this stuff going on it was my best day at W/B. Just real fucking cool cat-skiing for the first time.A woman reported to police at 6:30 p.m. that she was being "smart-mouthed."

I was skiing today with my daughter in my once-a-year ski day in the Midwest. All 260 vertical feet and 80 skiable acres. A guy on our lift asks if "this lift goes all the way to the top?". We rode it [I]all[I] the way up (then straighlined it down in about 15 seconds).

After a recent event in a lodge where I really tore into someone who gave me some crap I decided I needed to practice my chill.

dude and his girlfriend from DC riding the lift with us today at Vail. They were trying to take a picture of themselves while on the lift and the guy says:
" I wish it wasn't cloudy and snowing"

Woman in lift line at snow ridge today...
She is looking at the chairs but not moving into position. She asks the lifty, "Is there a better chair coming?"

Saw some gaper 20 yr olds using airsoft guns in the liftline. Is the human gene pool really this shallow?Sexual climax lasts mere moments; but Deep Powder is extended Nirvana.

40ish guy: "I was sitting up at the lodge watching all the people go down that steep run (blue groomer) and man, were they screaming down the hill. I just can't believe how people scream down the hill that fast...[wait for it] ...so, are you a screamer too?"
I nearly pissed myself.

My gf's friend is in town with his crew. She was chatting with him on the phone. She calls to see how things are. He mentions that he hasn't been up the past few days. Confused, my gf asks why. His reply is: "People ski when it's actually snowing?"

Today, I was single on Whistler Peak Chair with 3 random women. Then I realize one of the women has been silent the whole time and is gripped in fear. Whenever our chair passes over a rock, she gets visibly more gripped. OK, she's afraid of heights---a bit out of place, but cool that she's pushing herself. Next, her friend sees my MadTrix Mojo skis and makes a BIG mistake by blurting out, "Look at the cobra on those skis" (it's more like a rattlesnake, but that doesn't matter). So the gripped woman looks at the snake graphic and becomes completely petrified to a new level. Her 2 friends have to talk her through the rest of the chair ride and she unloads without incident. It's all good, she never impeded or annoyed anyone---I just hope she never has to endure the Hellbent graphics.
More noteworthy to me is when non-gapers pull weird or gaperish moves. Like when a non-gaper-looking snowboarder pulled out his fingernail clippers on the gondola and went at it. Not so bad, but seems weird if this guy keeps clippers in his parka pocket every day on the hill, just in case he needs an immediate manicure...
Or when I recently paired up with a non-gaper-looking skier in line for a double T-Bar, mid-day, no powder, no rush. We're waiting in line and moving forward together as a pair for at least 30 seconds, then his non-gaper-looking skier buddy arrives solo directly behind us. Looks like my partner will be leaving me to join his buddy, no worries, I'll just go solo---snowboarders commonly go up solo anyway, because T-Bars are a bit awkward, so no one should complain if I end up without a partner, hogging a whole T-Bar to myself. But instead of my ex-partner moving back one spot to join his buddy, and instead of them asking me for my spot in line, his buddy unexpectedly shoves me to take my spot, but he fails to budge me because there are fences and no place for me to be pushed to---no worries, tolerating shoves is part of skiing, I am enjoying the scenery. As we all move forward, now there is enough space for them to push me out, and they try to shove me again and move up into my spot, but this time I intentionally resist their shoving to hold my place in line, and they fail again---doesn't bother me, it's a nice sunny day. So I'm enjoying the scenery with a smile, while these guys continue with their somewhat aggressive shoving, and they're still too passive to address me even once, and then I hear them begin to accept their failure and complain to each other about how "passive-aggressive" I am being. OK, now I am finally bothered---by their hypocrisy. So I stare them right in the eyes to see if they want to address me or try something less passive-agressive, but they chose to remain passive. Good call.
.My biggest goal in life has always been to pursue passion and to make dreams a reality. I love my daughter, but if I had to quit my passions for her, then I would be setting the wrong example for her, and I would not be myself anymore. -Shane
