    Not a gaper quote, but yesterday at Big Sky I saw a couple looking at the Explorer chairlift, which is the beginner lift, debating whether to ride it. "I think that's the baby lift," the woman said.

    Totally got what she meant, but all day long I kept picturing babies riding up chairlifts and it made me laugh.

    It's 10 minutes from my house, that's the only benefit. Major airport is 30 minutes. This is how I live.

    Should've stopped in for a beer! If it was around 09:45 on Saturday, then that's likely exactly when said gaper-ish story was all shaking down.

    I don't understand how people have so much trouble with lifts. Especially adults on high speed detachables.
    1. Sit down.
    2. Stand up.

    Yeah, not a gaper quote. There's absolutely such a thing as too much snow - it happens in Tahoe all the time, at least back when it actually snowed here. If it comes in too big the odds of getting any decent terrain open during storm days (not to mention wind issues) can be a real factor to consider.

    I had a Norwegian mom and her two kids riding a lift with me a Snowbird. As we get to the top, I attempt to raise the bar and she refuses to move her skis from foot rests. We get right up to the ramp and I am yelling at her to lift the f-ing bar. She still refuses until I just slammed the bar and foot rests up at the last minute and was able to escape the lift. She then had the nerve to get mad at me for ripping the bar up and yelling at her. So yeah, it appears to be difficult to ride a lift for some.

    Maybe she was just there to ride the lifts up and back down again. Did you ever think of that? Did you? Didn't think so.

    If a chair full of adults (in america) brings the bar down on my head without warning (im tall so it hits me if i dont duck) i will hold the bar down far longer than is comfortable on the offload as payback.

    For most people that seems to be halfway up the hill.

    And if it comes down when we're still in the goddamn bottom terminal, I'm keeping it down as we go around the top bullwheel.

    I was warned about the Euros love of the bar, and was prepared on my first lift ride there, but damn they are quick. like before skis leave the snow quick.

    Also, i had more topsheet chipping from 5 days in french lift lines than i did from a full season back home in america.
