ChangeCashMoneyLast season at Snowbasin I met up with my dad for a few laps on the gondola. I had just ripped a bowl in my car and reeked. This dude and his girlfriend were in line ahead of us and wanted to get on the lift alone (which I would have been fine with) but my dad was excited to get up the mountain and just hopped on anyway, so I followed him. It was clear as soon as I got on why they wanted to ride alone. They smelled just as loud as I did. The first minute or so of the ride was silent, then my dad started going off to me about people who smoke weed on the gondolas, and how much he hates when he gets in and it smells like pot, and also that it's dangerous for everyone else on the mountain when people ski impaired (sorry dad, I'm that guy.) The dude, who was already understandably annoyed that he had to share the lift with us, busted out laughing. He asked my dad if he'd seen my eyes (he hadn't, I kept my goggles on) and then told him he should ask me how many gondolas I'd smoked in that day. I sort of chuckled uncomfortably, my dad just stared at me for a bit, and then the rest of the ride was dead silent. My dad didn't say a word to me the rest of the day, we took three quick laps then he went home. Hasn't said anything to me about it since.
you should've faked a fall in the lift line to avoid the chair, would have been less awkward in the long run
