For all his complaining his pole retrieval was actually pretty smooth...

You mean do I have "friends" who make fun of me and video me when I'm having a bad day and post it on you tube? No.

I'll admit that I was laughing out loud.

 

fwiw, that type of trash talk is typical with moguls under or near the lift line. At Wachusetts, the peanut gallery riding up make it an art form when they see someone making a yardsale on the bump run.

I was standing at the bottom of a moderately steep run, resting.  Hard boilerplate snow.  Moguls.  I watched a middle aged guy, about mid way on the run, fall.  A ski released and shot off a mogul and went down the hill a ways.  The guy saw me and yelled at me to please bring his ski to him.  Right, that would have been a 10 minute sidestep up the steep slope - I wouldn't do it even for my own mother.  So, I yelled back at him "just slide down on your ass!".  The guy came unglued and began a tirade, yelling profanity at me.  Then he popped off his remaining ski and started trying to march down the steep slope, yelling at me while trying to catch his breath.  I was clueless what he was pissed at me about and really didn't want to find out, so... I skied off.  I saw the guy on the slopes a couple more times - fortunately while I was riding a lift.  He was having a tough day of it.

 

Later in the day I told my buddies about the mishap.  One of them probably nailed it:  the 'dude probably thought he heard the words "you ass".

Oh come on. That's what friends are for... to laugh the hell out of you when you have bad day. But yeah, my friends normally ski without cameras, so I'm missing this "recording and posting on youtube" thing :)

You're right--in high school.

I know, and I'm always telling everyone I'm 22 :D It's irrelevant I quit racing when I was 27 and it's been good decade since then :D

a guy throws a temper tantrum b/c he yard-saled and having a bad ski day. He needs to get a grip of himself...... I hope my friends and family will do something to point out I'm taking my skiing (and ego) way too seriously.

I think skiing can be a really emotional thing. But I'm sure these friends are jackasses in other activities as well. Sure the guy needs to get a grip, but he needs to shed people who post his bad days on You Tube even more.

Looks like a firm day at Snowbird? I wonder if he would've just taken the cat track back down if he hadn't thrown his pole?

That dude needs anger management therapy, a couple of ski lessons, and new friends. Not necessarily in that order.
