cg.99Once almost got my pass pulled for throwing a snowball at my friend
Rum_HamI got another one. I was like 10 skiing blue mountain (PA, it’s a hill) with my dad. Just skiied down the steepest run on the mountain and I was feeling pretty badass. So I’m cruising the flat part at the bottom which is like 200yds to the lifts. “Patrol” comes up behind me and starts blowing his whistle so I just hockey stop immediately and he proceeds to run me over. He then yells at ME for being out of control and going too fast and threatens to take my day pass.

VinnieFSomeone actually told you to fix a mogul after you bailed on it? And you did what they asked? Son, you done fucked up.
BentPowSkiI swear I thought these Vail Inc Mountain Gestapo yellow clowns were just old dudes too cheap to pay for passes that could help you find your way around the mountain. Not so since patrollers would rather assist with injuries and manage terrain instead of being dicks.
My wife and I were checking our speed down a blue groomer while working our way around a patroller with sled and the usual Jerry's at Heavenly. I know, our first mistake was going to Heavenly. Well this tool was behind us just yelling incomprehensibly so we ignored him and stayed focused on the sled. Past that we ducked into some trees and when we got to mid mountain on the CA side he was now yelling at my wife. Without much of a coordinated uniform to identify him, I asked why he was yelling at people from behind, told him we saw the sled, and asked who he was. He said we came within 15 feet of the sled. I accused him of exaggerating and asked if there was any incident we created.
He never identified himself despite being asked several times and I basically questioned any authority he thought he might have while he was going all Barney Fife on me. Only then did he ask for my pass and I refused, so the chase was on. Basically we skated in circles at the base of Powderbowl, Patsy's, and Groove ducking in and out of lift lines while he yelled at me for ducking lift ropes and called for backup on his concealed radio. I loaded Patsy's while he thought he could get ahead of me on Groove. A slight wardrobe change midlift and I was off around the Aerial Tramway to drill the trees in East Bowl Woods. Never saw him again and spent the rest of the day skiing the NV side.
Best bet is to ignore the Vail Inc Mall Cops and walk or ride/ski away. Don't give them your pass or allow them to scan you for the information. They can't detain you and unless you committed a crime, no real police will waste their time. Passed my experience along to plenty of locals in South Lake and they all agreed no one respects those guys.
Bushdid9_11Last run of the day on whistler, nobody at all on the run and I'm just spinning in circles for as long as I can. Spun around a corner, a Yellow Jacket was standing there. He basically just started yelling at me, and I completely ignored him and kept spinning past him. Did chase me at all. No consequences.
