Brule.Yesterday I saw a group of little kid racers blocking the entrance to the park by huddling in a group with the coach. I was hoping they were still there once I got off the lift and bombed my way to the park so I could human slalom the racers and cut off the coach.
max_tafferya racers at my hill are all total assholes, one took my buddies skis and just fucking tossed them right in front of my friend. So he almost ended up fighting him... also this racer was like 50 so it would have hilarious.
brov1whenever you are angry at them remember, they are better than you
trannyfinder.eduOften times when you get to the top of the small park at my mountain there is a big group of racers/shred kids all in the way, dropping very, very slowly. (4-5 times a day) I always go to the front and call next drop and watch them all cry
eheathSnake or be snaked.
Profahoben_212What's wrong with them doing this. They are in the small park trying to learn? They are doing the right thing. Pretty sure you are being the ass in this situation.
CamperingA main lift broke down at my home hill two years ago. The race course got moved to where the park used to be, and the park got moved to a bunny hill. Isn't at all the racers fault, but it really bothers me when they spend more time shooting off the side of lips than they do on their own run...
addie.where's that beating a dead horse gif
Troy.Racing is the reason why skiing has any sort of profit or consistent customer base. Without racing, there would be no bentchetlers. No sidecut. No camber. No fucking edges even. You need racing.
Plus, when you're training, you're usually allowed to skip to the front of the line. Most mountains have special racer lanes (often coupled with ski school).
masterofnoneThis isn't an attack on racers, it's an attack at the racers at my mountain specifically. Like I said, they have their own lift that isn't open to anyone else except for a few days every year, but instead they use ours...
Troy.I am incredibly confident that someone who has much more experience and wisdom than you intentionally made that decision.
