Finally, park gaper training
Getting tired of snowplowers zig-zagging unpredictably all through the park with their ignorant parents close behind, usually through the in-runs? Or how about the family standing on the landing or knuckle out of sight, usually rocking the 215cm skis? wtf is this? Are you setting up for a family photo?
Don’t feel like reading the park rules? Don’t want to keep your kid in the safe spots? Hey! No worries. I got the answer for ya.
New highly sophisticated bindings with a proximity setting are the answer. They will be mounted on rentals. If the skier ventures closer than say.. 10 feet to any active in-run, unsafe landing, crowded rail/box, or any other place you can think of then the bindings, without warning, double eject the occupant out of their skis sending them flailing helplessly through the air, parents included.
Once they have successfully completed a park lesson/course. their proximity setting will be adjusted accordingly.
true it would keep gapers out, if there was a question on the quiz that says "are you a gaper", at stratton on lower middlebrook, i saw a family in there all sporting SES passes just to watch one kid of the family, plus theyre just a pain in the ass to take the quiz for, the damn questions are the same every mountain and you have to reanswer them everytime you wish to ski a different mountain
