And there it is. "Not my kid, never my perfect angel."
I've worked at a few different mountains now, and I've seen boatloads of rude, aggressive, and unsafe behavior out of race kids. Not exceptions. Not "one kid in a race suit". The general rule for race kids has been rude and entitled. If it's not like that at your mountain, great. The reality is, at many mountains it is. I currently work in a seasonal program, and there is a lot of cross-pollination between the race club and our program. We have kids leave our program to go to the race club, we have other kids leave the race club to join our program. We have families where some siblings are in the race club, while others are in our program. The kids in our race club are so bad that we have made it a point in our program to differentiate ourselves by focusing on skier etiquette and being a good citizen on the mountain. We have had kids leave the club and come to our program, and we have to say "this isn't the race team anymore, you need to treat everyone else with respect." And those kids look at us like the concept of respect is completely foreign to them. It's obvious they've never been taught it by their race coaches.
It was so bad this early season, when the weather restricted our terrain so badly, that there was a day that the race team was not out on the mountain. Rumors floated that the management had banned them for the day because of their behavior, but I was never able to actually confirm that story. But even so, everybody, from instructors to parents to students, were saying how nice it was to not have those kids out there today, how much better the mountain was without them. When that happens, there's a problem. And in my experience, it's not just limited to one mountain.
