not so much the park crew at my hill but friday night my crew had the whole park to our selves basically we had a group of probably 15-20 ppl just lappin the park. we got to the bottum and the lifties are like
"hey you guys are just speeding through the park one more complaint and your getting kicked outta here"
"dude do you ski? cause you kind of need speed to hit jumps, its a slopstyle course it has flow thats just how it is"
"yeah well you guys have no caution you just ride around like its just you guys"
"um well yeah we are the only ones"
"then how come im getting reports"
he continued to yell at us everytime we got to the lift
Its just ridiculous the things that ppl do
That sucks you should have just gotten a warning if anything. I could understand if you hit some features but you didnt.
My mountain has got to have the laziest park crew around, i have only seen them out working one day this season, they never fix lips or anyting, and they havent changed the set up at all it sucks
Hey man don't be raggin' on park crew when you broke the rules. I'm park crew and ski patrol at a hill in wisconsin and I definitely see where the guy was coming from. There is a reason the park was closed, especially if there was a cat in there grooming. If the park hasn't passed inspection or a feature(s) required maintanence, it is pretty important to keep people out of the park. At our park we have to inspect every feature daily and keep it closed until it happens.... which is usually before lifts start up unless we are doing a re-build. If some kid comes cruising through there without any kind of permission I would certainly have a stern talk with them... maybe not pull their pass, but I would certainly consider it depending on the situation. Don't be a dick when stuff like that happens, just be like "hey sorry dude I didn't think it was a big deal and I wont do it again." That probably would have kept you out of trouble, unless the guy was just out to get someone. Just remember that if you break the rules you have to be ready to deal with the consequences whether you agree with them or not. It is much harder to run and maintain a park than you think. I'm sorry for anyone who has a shitty park staff. Most of us are just out there trying to do our job and it really gets frustrating when kids (especially the ones who should know the rules) get in our way or we have to go out of our way to talk to them about following the skiers code and smart style.
