This thread is for offering up all the things you wish wasn't true, didn't happen, or never bothered you about skiing, ski equipment, resorts, transportation, other skiers ... you get the point. Allow me to offer a few of my Pet Peeves - Skiing-Related to get us started. The hope is that the thread will help offenders modify their behaviors through self-awareness.
1) Skiers who don't have the skills to be on the run and are thereby ruining it for me by removing all the fresh new snow by sideslipping the entire fall-line route. I call this peeve, You Don't Belong Here! (There is a thread somewhere...)
2) Skiers who smoke cigarettes on the chair lift and discard the butts on the snow. It's bad enough that I have to breathe your smoke without having to look at or ski over your garbage.
3) Skiers who won't take a lesson because they ski well enough. No you don't.
4) People who take more than one space in the parking lot. (I say people because this is kind of a general peeve that also applies to skiing.)
I have more, but I don't want to give the impression that I am writing a book about this or anything.
