so I was at loveland today in the park with a couple other guys hiking the rails. and these 3 ski patrol come up to us and start yelling at us to move down or something as we were waiting to drop into the flat box... and none of us had any clue what they were saying. so it turned out they were yelling at us for hiking the park! they told us we werent allowed to hike the park and we had to take one run straight through the park and ski back down to the lift, no hiking allowed. has a ski patrol ever yelled at you before for hiking the park? it was pretty gay
spark notes: hiking rails at loveland, we get yelled at because apparently we werent allowed to hike the rails (we had to take a run through the park and ski to the lift)
dude, just go to the patrol office or whatever and tell the guy in charge. Chances are there isn't a problem with this and these are just new patrollers who don't have a full grasp on their job in the first week. Being respectful and humble towards authorities will go a long way in these situations as well.
patrollers like that should just stay the fuck out of the park unless we need sled rides. last season this patroller destroyed the jump for the down rail at smuggs because he couldnt see it and was concerned that some gaper was going to run into it. long story short smuggs should set up there down rail street style. but they cant anymore because someone accidentally ran it over with the cat....
I know a lot of parks that encourage no hiking. They want people doing runs through the park to keep the flow and therefore making it safer. The person doing laps always has teh right of way, and some people who hike dont get that. But i have never seen patrol yell at people for hiking. thats just rediculous
