wasatch_ratHad a guy scream "fuck you quit cutting me off," from behind me, otherwise I would have had no idea he was there (downhill skier having right of way and all that.) When I stopped and told him I had right of way, he skied straight into me and hockey checked me into the ground. My buddy who saw tried to fight him at the bottom, but I told him it wasn't worth it and we reported it to ski patrol.
Fast forward a year and the same dude tries to get on the lift with us, when there's no line. I realize who it is and tell him to wait a chair because I didn't want to ride with him. Apparently he got bent out of shape, because when he saw me at the bar at the end of the day he waited in the parking lot for me to leave. When I was walking to my car he confronted me and punched me in the ear, breaking my sunglasses. Now I'm skinny but I'm still 6'3 185lb, and this dude is like 5'7 maybe 160lbs tops, so it wasn't too hard to get him in a headlock, drop my weight, and just hold him there until someone broke it up, but he did try to hit me in the balls while i held him down. When it got broken up he starts screaming "you better get the fuck out of Alta if you know whats good for you, ill be here long after you!"
By now there was a crowd, at least 5 or more had seen him initiate both the verbal and physical fight, and even more were watching him threaten me. Turns out this guy had a lot of similar incidents that alta locals were aware of. Long story short, he ended up getting banned from the entire town Alta for a few years. Only fight I've been in since the second grade, and the sheer pettiness and absurdity of it still amaze me.
Jeez, similar thing happened to me when i was 13. My buddy and I were getting in line and this guy slide up beside me and he is smoking a joint. Where I'm you aren't allowed to smoke weed but the Lifties are chill and didn't say anything. I have nothing against weed nowadays, but i was 13 and my friend was 12 so its pretty uncool to do that next to us. We were about to get on the chair and my friend and I stayed behind, so he got on the chair ahead of us.
On the chair he turned around and started yelling at us. We got off the chair and he was following us around and screaming at us. My friends dad came to pick us up at the end of the day, and the guy followed us to the car, and was yelling at us and threatening to stab us. My friends dad punched him and he left
