uh since when? they never enforce that shit. I have never been asked to put the bar down by a patrol( even though i usually have it down anyway)
lol, just like BobYohan
said, for some reason i also put it down when im cold...wierd.
and i usually have it down, i love the foot rests plus i would rather have some stupid bar down then fall 30feet onto hardpack and/or rocks. I hate it when people put down the bar without warning. Some dumb bitch fucking slammed it down on my knee.
she was with her little kids and the second we get on the chair like the exact second she reaches for the bar and literally slams it down! landed right on my fucking knee( and at my hill like none of the chairs have rubber on the handles, so it was pure steel) it hurt bad. She didnt even say sorry, she just said " Move your leg next time" ( and i know there was little kids, but whatever they will be introduced to swear words in a year or two anyway) so im like " FUCK YOU, WHO THE FUCK DO YOU THIK YOU ARE JUST SLAMMING THE BAR DOWN WITHOUT WARNING?" so i try to lift the bar up (my pants are stuck under the bar) but i cant because she is leaning on it, so i ask(slightly calmed down, but still extremely pissed) "uhmm could you get off the bar so i can get my pants out from under?" she goes " No need well lift the bar when we get to the top"
me-" Uh how about no, you already slammed it down on my knee, so im lifting this bar!"
Her-"NO!, i have two little kids which you already cussed infront of, and i dont want them falling"
Me-" FUCK YOU, im lifting this bar when i want ot now get the hell off"
she refuses, but in the end i over power her and lift up the bar for liek a second and get my pants out and put it back down.
me-"see that wasnt so hard"
her-" how dare you, you little unrespectful brat! i am notifying the ski patrol the moment we egt to the top so dont go anywhere!!"
me-"hahahahahaha!, ya like im going to listen to you. Thats funny. hahahaha!"
her-"have some respect, maybe ill be nice and not tell the patrol to tell your parents about this incedint"
Me-' HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! oh my god that is funny!"
we are now at the top so she lifts the bar and i ski away still luaghing my head off( sincerely laughing, not fake just trying to rub it into her face type laughing)
