Headphones and Earbuds Banned? No Music While Skiing or Riding?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I haven't brought music along for a ski day in decades but thought I would have heard more about this from folks around here.  Saw this sign right next to the ticket window at the ski hill yesterday.  I don't know that I've seen it enforced though.  Pretty sure I saw lots of kids with cables going to their ears and helmets out there yesterday..

Wow, never seen that before. I personally am usually skiing alone recently, as it seems my wife is pregnant every winter, but I usually have one ear bud in, one out to listen to something, but still hear whats going on around me for safety reasons.

Interesting. Not sure I think it'll do much good; in a helmet sound is fairly muffled anyway, and I think the incidence of "on your right/left" is down below 5% these days, replaced by "heh heh, you OK?" after the boarder has collided with you. A little music might make the thud of the hardback on your head less irritating...

Comment was mostly in jest. Really started skiing 3 years ago and she has been pregnant 2 of past 3 years.

Just wait until you get the guy with a loud speaker blasting his rap music in line. Nothing like Dr Dre calling women foul words with kids in the lift line.
