At Stevens Pass this evening, my brother on the flat run nearing the lift, with nobody within 20-30 feet of him, did a polish donut. He’s done a lot of them, and did this one cleanly and in control.
1 minute later, a ski patroller hops on the lift with us and vaguely threatened to throw the book at us, claiming my brother “wasn’t in control” and could’ve hit someone. The patroller also was blatantly dishonest, saying he “almost hit” her, when in reality, I watched and the patroller was essentially nowhere in sight. I proceeded to ask why terrain parks are built, claiming that everyone skis thru them while people are learning new tricks, and you could get just us as hurt there as anywhere else on the mountain. I said, “Why is a slowly done polish donut so dangerous?”
Quite honestly at this point, we tuned the patroller out, as they proceeded to fumble around with words and change the subject. I think they were caught off guard. Haha!
Anyways, it’s been a minute since I’ve picked the brains of everyone here. Is this worth being pissed about? Anybody else have any recent similar experiences at the Galactic Empire’s (Vail) resorts?
