    While technically correct he wasn’t blocking the trail ,putting yourself in the spot he did he could have been run over by another gapper . Sometimes it’s better to be safe than correct.

    IMO the edges of trails are for the fast skiers to pass the mob. And you're harder to see standing next to a bunch of trees. The last place I want to stop. Although I don't generally stop. One of the first thing I taught my kids, when youre zig zagging down the hill don't go all the way to the edge--leave room for someone to get around you. Although they didn't zig zag down the hill for long.

    And if you think spraying someone is no big deal, try spraying the other teams goalie and see what happens.

    I ski right over their skis

    on purpose

    or I pole plant right on their skis or board

    It's pretty obvious from me that the kid was straight lining and speed checked to not wreck the guy and did him and himself a favor.

    Maybe.

    More likely there was some prior interaction not shown on the video.

    We might need a senate committee and a special counsel to get to the truth.

    Correct move would've been to grab the MAGA hat as you ski by without stopping, and fling it frisbee-style away somewhere. While you do it, you say something like "don't spray the master, beeyatch!" and then ski away.

    The crowd cheering on the guy escaping the lame-ass yellowjacket was my favourite. Complete with the failed desperation dive! HAAA!! Fuck the snow-police, we maintain order on our own, vigilante-style!

    Kid reminded me of Hotdog Hans.

    Mine too. Covid did some wild shit. I don't think it's just transplants, I think people kinda forgot how to interact with other people.
    No longer stuck.

    See, this is what makes Park City so much more core than DV.

    Also that's not a MAGA hat, you fucking gapers.

    the best part was that they were both on brand new touring gear

    matching boots

    they both struggled getting skins on skis - actually even pulling skins apart

    they both struggled getting bindings into touring mode and then getting into them


    both started hiking in full kit - puffy jacket and shell, Hestra heli mitts, helmuts and goggles deployed for the up

    it was 25į and blowing

    I was in a tshirt with a ball cap on


    they asked me if I knew the way up

    hilarity ensued

    I saw a group of 4 similarly garbed men skinning up the cat track Thursday night after dark, two had airbag packs on. No headlamps because it was during night skiing

    At Copper Mountain. Iím on 108 ON3P Jeffries. On that bizarre half-gondola lift they donít allow you to put your own skis in the gondi rack. So the liftie takes my skis, and is promptly completely baffled about how to put them in the rack. Tries twice to put them in while together, then finally pulls them apart, literally asks out loud whatís going on, and ends up dropping them in a snowboard slot.

    I didnít know what to say. Granted I havenít skied there often lately, but does no one at copper ski wide twins? Bizarre. Also, only one of the slots on the rack were wide enough to fit 108s. WTF?
