GrandThingsI always give the classic "hey hows your day going?" If they choose to extend the conversation I'll chat with them but if not I'll just turn my music back on.
Nothing better than someone turning to you and asking "yo you smoke?" though. Especially if its a jerry or someone you wouldnt expect
BdoobzHeckle race kids
FabseMMainly people ask if I do tricks on these weird skis or where I ride on a pow day when they see fat skis.
But on a solo day also a quiet ride without any music is sometimes pretty nice and helps me focus on upcoming laps
DeebieSkeebiesEnjoy a pocket snickers, take a few drags off of the weed pen, maybe have a beer, but usually listen to music and look at stuff if im on the chair alone.
I'll tell ya though, I got a lot of people possibly interested in ON3P's cuz they always ask about my kartels and being a satisfied customer, ill pump their tires a bit and get them turned onto them.
PlanktonUsually just chill and listen to music or talk to my neighbor if they seem into it, sometimes they’ll have something interesting to say. Also think about tricks I want to do that lap or which line I want to try to ski.
During the school year if I have a lot of work sometimes I’ll bring readings for class and a pen in my pack and do them on the chair, or if I have an exam coming up I’ll study flashcards or notes on my phone. It’s actually a great use of that idle time considering we probably spend more minutes sitting on the lift than actually skiing
Swervemanguy“What’s your best trick?”
beckumsThe first time I soloed a ski lift I was probably 12. I was utterly terrified, cause it was the biggest and longest lift at the mountain. It also made an emergency stop over the highest point of the lift line which really shook me up. After that ride, I was never phased by a lift in my youth ever again.
theabortionatoras long as they don't hit me with the fucking bar.
oldmanskiI ride solo a lot and I utilize the the singles line so I usually end up riding the chair with someone. I remove the ear buds and try to strike up a conversation most of the time. Same as some of these other posts, I ride some ON3P Kartels and someone usually always asks me about them, so I do the sales pitch,lol. Also if i ride up with some little kids, it is always cool to ask them their ages and how long they have been skiing. You usually get an ear full of some crazy stories and some good laughs from them. I Have met some really cool people throughout the years, I have been skiing Hood the last few season(since I moved to the Portland area) and it seems to get a lot of out of area people so it is always interesting to hear where they are from and why they are in the area.
-skian-Used to talk to my buddy in the worst Canadian accent about syrup and beavers and whatnot. The strangers expressions were gold, and we did it nonstop top to bottom. When they asked a question it was always rough to answer straight to their face.
