ive been passed by a racer when i was carving down a trail just goin kinda slow linking big carved turns, a partroler is at the bottom and stops me saying i was going WAY to fast and must have been out of controle if i was going that speed(not even that fast).
When i brought up the fact that the racer was going faster then me he said it was ok because he was obviously a better skiier and could controle himself at that speed...That'll get ya pissed
theres a guy up here who is so gnarly he even gos threw the park with me and did a three well on duty.
he even talked me into doing a spred eagle line with him. he is the shit
1) Never fry bacon when you're naked.
2) Always keep at least one foot on the floor when it comes to eating dinner,
drinking tequila or playing cards.
3)never EVER under any circumstances eat the yellow snow.
you should rig them up with grenades, they would never steal skis again. ever.-uber scoober
Say that next time you break your back... and I must say from what I have observed eastern ski patrollers seem to be a lot grumpier then western ski patrollers. However they are just doing their job. In fact most of them are volunteering, and without volunteer organizations like the CSPS resorts wouldn't be able to operate. And if they did your looking at another 20 bucks on top of your ticket price to cover their salaries. So be thankful they dedicate their time for nothing.
nah dude i say fuck them. On sat i was skiing and i was getting into line and i slipped on ice and fell on a ski patrolers skis and i got up and said i was really sorry. So as we were in line he came up to me pushing me saying i really resent the fact you didnt look into my eyes when you said you were sorry. so i just sat there and i was like okay old man im sorry. get outta my face.
ski patrol at breck are chill....except people are gay there...i swear i rode up the lift with people either from texas or florida-complete gapers....but if they give the resorts full price then im fine with that..-makes the park better..
the reason they get pissed at you is because part of their job is to prevent injuries, i agree they can be dicks at times but thats no reason to rag on them all the time. like nomensteven said above, you wont be calling them assholes when you get hurt and need them to help you off the hill
Alright, these threads are getting really old. Yeah, occasionally you'll encounter a salty patroller that will stereotype kids in baggy pants. But can you really place all the blame on him? From what I've seen here (and on the hill), they deal with entirely too much attitude and mindless hate from kids who think patrol owes them something. I know this is the best place to go if you want people to jump in and hate someone you don't like, but it's really unnecessary and will accomplish absolutely nothing. Ski patrol has way better things to do than talk to high school kids, so if they're irritated it's probably because they really shouldn't need to talk to you. Just think before you do something you know other people won't like and it'll work out.

exactly, its not cool to act all rebel and try to be a bitch to the ski patrollers, sometimes they can do stuff which is pretty lame but overall if you fuck yourself up in the park or anywheres else they're ultimately going to be the ones that are going to help save you
so don't be a douche when they tell you something you don't like that isn't completely unresonable (and by completely unreasonable i mean something like what happened w/ curtis getting his pass pulled - that was a load of bs)
your an idiot. he was just doing his job. if he said it was a closed trail than it obviously was. but no wait, all ski patrollers like to make things up because they think it is fun to get random kids in trouble. check the rules..at my mountain anything that isn't groomed is considered out of bounds and you are not supposed to be there. I'll almost gaurantee there is something like that. they don't have to go around and mark off every trail just because dumb asses like you want to be rebels and ski down them
dude im not even bitching because of that www.skiwestmountain.com look there
and ill tkae a pic of where i was tommrow and theres no sings no nothnig
im bitching at what he said to me, cuz it was mad disrespectfull for me appologzing and being cool and nice about it and he gives me attitude.
we all know you're a ski patroller at heart <3

I actually duck ski patrol as crack dealers duck cops. Every single day I have run-ins.
To strike back, I ollied onto the porch of the ski patrol hut, and skied down there wooden stairs. They called in for backup and confronted me, but I denied it, because "Snitchins fo bitches"

im on ski patrol at plattekill mountain, and if anybody on my patrol was that much of an ass, i would personally beat the fuck out of them. some ski patrollers who are left over from the '50s are this idiotic, but most of us are pretty chill. i can understand why your pissed though, but some people are assholes who will try to ruin your day no matter what, they just enjoy mindless authority. for the most part though, almost all the patrol ive ever met regard fixing people as their first priority, and pulling passes as other peoples job
the ski patrol are 50/50 at my hill... some are cool and chill and some are comeplete hardasses.
some if they see you skiing glades (not allowed at my hill), will just tell you to leave. others will take your pass. some will take your pass for skiing switch (ridicoulous), some will cheer me on.
ya...my hills pretty whack too...skiing glades is strictly forbidden, but theres no signs or notices to say that. One time a couple years back, my brother, two friends, and I went to my hill on a powder day(about 1.5 feet which is alot for around here) and theres this trail with some sick woods runs that we make....and about halfway down the slope, it turns 90 degrees and theres a nice 8-10 foot cliff drop accessible from one of our woods trails....so were jibbing this cliff and what not, and we are literally the only people on the whole hill besides ski patrol/mountain ops because its a week day and our school was the only one in the area that had off. So im about to do the drop, i have my bro looking uphill to see if anyones skiing down so i dont hit them on the landing, and i do a simple 180 off of it. Out of nowhere, comes a ski patroller, but not a normal one. This guy is skiing freaking pie down the hill trying to get to me, hes yelling for me not to go anywhere, then he falls! Yes, i got yelled at by a ski patroller who couldnt even ski! how was he even hired? He was telling me that if i fell in the woods since no one else was on the slope i wouldnt be able to be helped, but my 3 broskis were right there. He also said that jumping from that height(8-10 feet) was fatal, and i was lucky to not have broken both my legs and neck....at this point i start laughing because i think he is joking, but then he gets uber pissed and takes my pass...i know ski patrollers are just trying to do their jobs, but who the fuck is allowing a patroller who cant even make it down a green circle slope tell me anything about skiing?

Using no poles is like getting a blowjob from a guy, it feels good until you look down and relize your a homo.
Patrol: Where is your pass? (its hidden in my pocket when I am ob - which is rare bcause it is generally dangerous)
ME: I don't have one, I have a lift ticket but I lost it in the woods, I took a fall and ripped my pants. Show the patroller, all my clothes are ripped and stained.
Patroller: See how unsafe it is, what if you would have broke your leg?
Me: I know! I am scared to death and get your point, sorry it took this for me to realize.
Patroller: That is right bitch, now go have a great day.
Me: Thanks sir. (put my pass back on, go in the gondi and puff - do it again.)
Let them have there power trip, agree with them but hold your confidence, don't let them ask you any more questions than they absolutely have to, and let them do their job and then move on and don't let it bother you.
Here in colorado, if it is closed it is for pretty good reason in most cases.

I have read a bunch of threads about this. At first I thought you guys were just being dramatic and over sensitive, but it does seem like patrol in the east and midwest are a little jerky to the park rats and younger guys. Thats too bad. I live in Colorado and patrol here is pretty chill. They actually encourage progression. My friend and I were ducking a rope last year right next to the patrol shack and one of them stopped me and I thought "great now I need to have an encounter", but he just wanted to make sure we knew what we were doing and that we had the proper gear. I assured him we did and he said,"cool, well have fun, the snow looks good out there!"
A lot of resorts consider the trees as a natural boundry, if that is the case it's your fault for not knowing. Stop bitching, the guy didnt take your pass he just gave you a warning. Those guys take a lot of shit from stupid people and people thinking that dont have to fallow rules. He was doing his job, get over it.

looking to meet anyone who enjoys long, fast turns on sweet groomers, big hits or deep pow in the glades!! Must love the outdoors and not be afraid of cold temperatures or adverse weather conditions.
considering how many ns threads are devoted to people talking about how gangster and badass they think they are, It does make a little sense that the patrolers sometimes think you're trying to be a pain in the ass.
haha this reminds me of 3 days ago when my friends and i were building this sick kicker in the pow and we just hear a voice out of nowhere say STOP STOP RIGHT NOW but we dont see anyone so we are like whatever and keep building the jump and then this guy appears from nowhere like a freakin magician with this other ski patrol teenager and tells us to tear it down and he gave us "a warning" on our passes (wow whats that gonna do) my friend got his pass pulled because he told the guy f u but the teenager ski patrol guy was like dont listen to that guy he is a di** (are we aloud to cuss in the forum? didnt read rules sorry) and told us a cooler place to build a jump.
so.......the moral of my story is some ski patrol guys are total di** but most are tight here in cali.
