Poll: Ever knowingly entered a ski school lift gate?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

When there was no line, to save walking uphill.

I have but I feel like an original gangsa when I do it. (Original Gansta=OG=Old Goat, get it? Ha, ha.)

(OK it's not a real poll).

Yes, when all the corrals were empty, I've mistaken the school slot for the singles slot. They are usually adjacent.

Your poll is missing.

Never on purpose unless the conditions are like sib describes above.

post #4 of 16

yes, but respectfully let the few singles who were properly queued go by, and effectively waiting for "my turn"

Sure, when I was in ski school :D

 

Probably also a few times like sib describes, empty corrals.

often, when i am too lazy to duck under the rope for the empty corral.

All the time.

If I do a long Face to 6, it a lot shorter to just go in the SS gate.
If nobody's in line, what's the difference.

I am surprised none of the yahoo racers homies on this site gave their times or their top top speeds...we all want to know

Truly random.

I saw a lot of people poaching the SS line over Christmas.  I generally let it go, but have recently started politely asking the obvious poachers "who are you skiing with?"  It's rude to help yourself to an obviously shorter line when the rest of the maze is full.  I don't buy that they didn't see the sign or thought it was the singles line, especially when you see the same people doing it on multiple runs.

Yes, once, when some foreign family of seven (couldn't recognize the language) was parked all spread out across the next four entrances.  There was nobody, not a soul, in the ski school line but the liftie/traffic cop was all over us before we could even duck under the rope to move into the nearly empty regular line.

Sure, yesterday and Thursday.   And then my clients followed right behind me with their skibikes.   ;)

If it's quiet we'll go in the ski patrol/race coach entry rather than going around  to the ski school entrance.
