Ok, Really Dumb Question

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I was once stopped by a Ski Patrol guy for taking a piss in the trees. You know, sometimes you just can't make it to the lodge. Any suggestions on the most appropriate manner to relieve yourself when nature calls?

lol,
Try not to use the tree with the Christmas decorations on next time it takes the shine off the balls and shorts-out the lights but the chocolate does stay on the tree longer. Alternatively suggest that your ski patrol be quipped with bed-pans or other containers for such an emergency.

Begs the question ....
Q. Do bears sh** in the woods
A. No the patrollers won't let them

Usually behing the patrol top shack is a good spot.

Who needs to go to the lodge? that is what skiing is about, being closer to the natural order of things.

Why is it so hard for men to use a restroom? I do understand that there are rare emergencies, but assuming you're over the age of about 5 - I don't get the lack of planning ahead on a regular basis. It's not like you're really out in the middle of nowhere at a ski resort. One of the guys I ski with got caught by the sheriff in the parking lot - he was like 100 yards from the lodge. The harm to the watershed it debatable, but if we can't have dogs up there because they pollute the watershed - how is it okay to have people urinating all over the place? Plus, I just get sick of seeing patches of yellow snow all over the place. Like someone said, part of skiing is getting out and enjoying nature - noticing that I'm standing in/on a snowbank that people have obviously been peeing in doesn't really enhance the experience for me.

When you really gotta go, 100 yards seems like 100 miles. Your point is well taken, though. Thank you.

Oh brother! The reason men like the Great Outdoors is because it is one big pisser. The idea of booting out, racking the skis, stomping 500 yards through the lodge, sweating like a stuck pig all to take a 1 minute piss is awe inspiring. Why not just stop in the trees, or hell, if you ain't real modest, at trail side and let 'er rip. I don't ski in anyones water shed at my home mt so no bothers there. Plus, it gives me something to do while waiting for the rest of my party. Idle hands are the Devils workshop you know! [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

I thought this was a serious or at least semi-serious forum; not just a place where you could see how many responses you could get to a stupid question? But then, stupid questions are asked by s _ _ _ _ d people.

Urine is an aesthetic pollutant for some, but actually is sterile. Hence the pioneer practice of peeing on a wound as a topical medicinal. Snow in quantity provides a great medium for dilution so your choice of venue for relief I think was apt, if not the location. "The solution to pollution is dilution" as they say on the river.
My question is, how come that patroller busted you? How'd he get a view? Is he some kinda pervert, or do you need to ski into the woods a little farther before whipping it out? [img]tongue.gif[/img]

IT's all about taking a leak in the mountains. Extreme peeing is pretty sweet too. Off of cliffs, bridges, etc. Best I've seen is off the top of the Lions Gate Bridge in Vancouver. Night assault.

We pee in the trees because we can...

I had a great laugh a while ago as I was driving along Hwy 395 in very windy/gusty conditions. A snowboarder from LA had stopped to relieve himself right off the side of the road in full view of anyone driving by. I guess he had never learmed not to pee into the wind or his desire to show off what he had going on clouded his good judgement. I drove by just at the right moment to see the dude give himself a golden shower...His reaction was classic....Bout crashed my truck.

Gosh, being a gurrrl and all ... this topic reminds me of the only time I skied Eldora. I was about 10 or 11, and somewhat lost at the end of the day (which wasn't that big of a deal, since I knew to just go downhill) -- but I had to pee SO BAD. I ended up skiing to the side of the run, sitting, and just going right there, bibs and all. I always kinda wanted something to "whip out" ever since then. (But I've learned to plan ahead of time, instead.)

Hey Flip, I thought this forum was for everybody. If you did not like my question, then you did not have to read it. But your insult was not appreciated

If it's yellow, it's sure to mellow.

Anybody remember that story on here of a girl who went for a pee during a learner lesson? Didn't realise she should of took her skis off and came out of the trees in a squat position, screaming, ski pants round her ankles in full flow leaving a yellow trail below - classic. (ummmmm ..... barking beaver?)
I remember the story, it is an urban legend though. Check Snopes.com and search on "Ski Bum"

I take Altagirls points. I trust all considerate men on this forum will now use the crop sprayer technique. It's the best way to dilute it and eliminate the aftermath of yellow snow by peeing onto the forrest from the chairlift above.

Hey Flipflopfly, this was aobviously posted in good humor so why not liven up a bit? Even you have to admit this was funny to read!

BTW, in no small amount of seriousness, this is an issue that most guys face, "is it ok to go here or should we go to the lodge?" I'd have thought with a name like flipflopFLY you'd relate.
