    I skied Stevens Peak on Saturday, and I found some bear tracks crossing the skin track. They didn't look that big, so I'm guessing it was a little guy. I didn't see any big mama bear tracks nearby. On the way down, I found a different set of tracks that could have been a big bear. But those big tracks were suncupped, and didn't have any detail.

    When I think of whether a dog owner is good or bad I think of how they treat the dog, not whether the dog lashed out at a skier flashing by (that could have easily avoided him). My dogs live their life off leash. It doesn't always work out but they're not vicious or mean so i trust them to not kill or maim anyone. You can call me a bad owner if you want, I don't really give a shit because I'm here for them, not for you.
    And accepting my apology in person and then spraying this shit online is fucking weak, imo.

    Oh boy! Train yer dogs man!! You have obviously put zero effort in training a ski dog. Your dogs suck to ski with and itís entirely on you. I donít ever ski with you anymore because of it and Iíve been biting my tongue for years when I see how careless you are with them.
    Itís a miracle they Havnt been sliced by a ski edge. I avoided yer dog as he charged at me while skiing down so I wouldnít cut him and got a good dog bite in return
    I never even mentioned you by name here n just threw a lil dig at U to maybe make you think about the danger u put your dogs in when they are untrained and constantly trying to jump in front to bite the skis. I know of some local dogs who have had their Achilles sliced and itís from letting them jump in front.
    And for the record dork, accepting your apology doesnít absolve you of your carelessness with your dogs. If whiskey had bitten someone besides me, you would b dealing with a lot more shit and your dog would b facing legal problems. My leg is still swollen but I have no desire to get a dog in trouble because itís owner is too fucking lazy to train it to know any better
    I didnít make this personal calling you out. You just did that all on your own.

    Vail perplexes me. Why would they groom runs and not turn lifts? If they are no longer spinning the lift because of lack of customers and cost savings, why pay for fuel, drivers and wear and tear on a cat?

    Good for you tho. I do love the cornuroy. I recall chair 11 being groomed at KW on spring when only 5 and 6 were spinning. Made for great afternoon hike laps of Wall to lower mountain groomers.

    So that the employees who still have to travel on snowmobiles around the hill have a safe(r) route of travel than horribly rutted mush.

    Plus, cats are all over that place moving pipes, equipment, food, snow, etc.

    If your dog actually bit someone, you kinda need to stfu and take the shaming.

    Speaking of bears...

    Gimpy, is that a human bootpack up the Y? Or is the Mott bear wandering around in there?

    Whiskey is fine to ski with. You yell 'go' and he goes. He does have a prey drive when he gets surprised which is what happened there. That was totally my bad for not knowing where he was when I couldn't see uphill past the rollover. I had just assumed I was the only one there which was wrong and irresponsible on my part.

    Nacho was a concern with ski edges but stopped caring about chasing people beside me quite awhile ago. Between the two they have close to 1,000 days on the hill with about 3 incidents (this being the first involving a bite). Nacho has had a unidentified leg injury (not a cut) and whiskey got a puncture wound from something on the ground that required veterinary attention.
    As I said in person and through IG, I am sorry. I realize saying sorry doesn't absolve me of anything. I still feel accepting the apology and then posting that online is weak. The fact that people know you're talking about me doesn't bother me at all.

    A well trained, quiet, and careful dog is a rare, and unusual thing. And a pleasure to behold.
    Noisy, aggressive, boisterous?
    And the dog thinks they are in charge?
    Yeah that's normal.

    Really didnít care to have an internet squabble and had no intention of outing u whether u care or not but I canít let that go. Telling me I should have been able to avoid him and that heís fine to ski with makes it clear u accept no responsibility for your dogs actions .........which are 100% tied to you, the owner, who neglected to train them.
    Just fucking own it man!!!
    You really need to train your dogs to listen to you and not chase skiers. I know they are great dogs, but that does not make them good ski dogs. That takes effort, time and patience from the owner. If u want Iíll post a picture of my swollen bruised calf with 2 puncture marks in it or my ripped ski pants if it helps you to fucking recognize that your argument is bullshit. Trust me when I tell you that just about every member of this board I talk to that has skied with you and your dogs thinks the same thing. It just took me being bit to finally call you out on it. Which I didnít really even do as there really was no need for u to respond and put names n faces to my little innocuous comment bout no bad dogs just bad owners. If he had bit a heavenly employee or someone not as compassionate as myself, you would be fucked. Iím tempted to get some antibiotics for my bite but I know what happens when a dog bite is reported. Trust me man, itís not good so Iíve refrained n hope it just gets better.
    Iíve said all I need to say n hope this just dies out here. You can take it to heart and better you and your dogs lives by training them or you can just think Iím an asshole. If me being an asshole can contribute to your dog not getting his Achilles sliced and ending his athletic career or from attacking another unsuspecting skier, then so be it

    Iíve also lost a few ski partners that insist on bringing their dogs. I just wonít ski with them anymore. Iíve seen two legs sliced, badly, and one get caught, buried and killed. If your a responsible dog owner you just donít ski with them.

    Dork outed himself. Fullstop. No one would have noticed, paid any attention to, or recognized what gimpy was referring to if Dork hadn't posted that defensive response.

    I think he's overly defensive cause he knows he's wrong and because Gimpy has posted more and better stoke this season

    That may be a bit of an overstatement... there are always exceptions, but, after starting a thread on this very subject last year regarding my new lab, I ultimately decided not to go there. Not to mention, a few people I tour with said they wouldnít go with me if I brought the dog.

    Hasn't gimpy had that as his signature forever or am I mistaken? I swear I've seen the "bad owner" thing a long time ago.

    Ditto with Fritz.
    I have an 85lb labrador I never take skiing (once in a blue moon on an easy tour I will). Even if I took the time to train him I wouldn't bother as I think it's a huge p.i.t.a. I have no problem with anyone's dogs though and I like seeing them out there. It's just personal preference for me. I also don't think it's good for a lab to be sprinting down hills all day (or any dog). It's got to be terrible for their joints. Then there's the unspoken aspect of putting dogs in avy danger and I never see anyone strapping beacons to them. If I did ever take my dog out in serious powder I'd definitely strap a pack on him and throw a beacon in there (most ppl have old, spare beacons laying around).
    So, what kind of damage did the bite do? I honestly don't see the big deal (especially if I was a dog person) if it was a reactive action done out of surprise. It's not like the thing is trying to eat you lol.

    I enjoy everyone's stoke, but I agree with this. Would have never noticed until PD's post.

    Here's the dog rule I live by: In a public space, nobody's dog should approach anyone in anyway at anytime. And conversely, in a public space, no person should approach anybody's dog without permission.

    So if you're at CP where there's a high likelihood of encountering other skiers, your dogs need to be velcro dogs or on leash.

    I don't have a dog in this fight (haha) but gimpy, if you're leg is swollen you need to go get the antibiotics. I was bitten several years ago (2 small puncture wounds on my quad) and got cellulitis within a few days, it was big and red and was creeping towards my balls by the time I decided to deal with it so don't wait. I know it's awkward with having to report something about the incident but do not let this stand in the way of getting needed medical attention. That's what I did and I ended up regretting it.

    Lighten up Francis. Obviously a cat person who lives in the city. My dog goes up to people all the time. Only an uptight asshole would have a problem with a dog coming up to them to say hi.

    Or somebody who's been bitten before or simply somebody that doesn't like or feel comfortable around unknown dogs. Not everybody is a dog person and not everyone knows or wants to deal with somebody else's dogs...

    My friend had a very sweet but very large and very strong labrador he stopped hiking with because the dog was not the greatest of "greeters" on the trail.
