Think about it for more than 2 seconds from the other perspective.
1) Even if you believe VAIL is a money grubbing evil corporation, then would they waste money buying a SIGN, setting it up and taking it down every single day and paying for an employee to wait and watch there just to harsh your buzz? that makes no sense.
2) Same goes for the oh just fix that rock. Do you really think if it were that simple the guy who has to setup the sign every single morning at 8AM or the guy taking it down at 4pm wouldn't have figured that out?
1) Evil, I wouldn't say that. Arrogant, money grubbing, yes. Our mountain is run much more poorly since Vail came in. All the people I ski with, none of them like Vail. Every local I talk with on the lift, they don't like Vail either. They have very strong opinions on this too. People here wish Vail had stayed out of PC.
Think about this for more than 2 seconds........
2) A bump right across a run. Not even much of a bump, just enough to get you in the air a couple inches at moderate speed. The kid wasn't going very fast and hardly came off the ground. But they don't want none of that stuff, and badly enough to put up a sign every day and have someone watching. Stupid. Just get rid of it. If there's dirt underneath, dirt is real easy to push around. You mention "that rock." I said "if it's the top of a boulder", and you're assuming that's what it is. If rock.....it's not hard to flatten the tip of a rock and real easy to push dirt around around it. Getting rid of a bump isn't difficult. It wouldn't be they guy setting up the sign who'd do it. I've watched our race hill be considerably re-contoured a couple times. Last summer I watched tractors cut a new run on top of a hill at the Canyons.. And that whole whole area at the bottom of King Con run and under Miner's Camp lodge has been very extensively changed......both filled and flattened. A bump across the run with a "no jumping sign" and someone watching? Sheesh.
The yellow jacket was doing his job. We have those guys here a PC also.
