While in Whistler, the attempts at cutting I saw WERE the Boarders.
Also, since it's going there...

In line on Blackcomb, after a polite misundertsanding with some fine, quite honorable Brits, they said, "Hey, you think this is a problem, try queing up with Italians and Germans. That's when it gets 'interesting'."

Just a quote.

You got the right idea. When you dont want people trying tosnake in front of you blockem off. This can be as simple as a ski pole between their skis or blocking them off with your body. Just find your line and ski it.

Freshies are worth my giving up my firstborn son.

If lift lines piss you off - start hiking. There aren't any lines.

I am not a line cutter and the above was not intended as defense for their actions.

question for the medical people among us:

How easy is it to pop someone's kneecap from behind with a long aluminium cylindrical instrument which is pointy at one end?

No, I was just thinking you could argue self defense, and it wasn't even a concealed weapon.

Alright, i want some opinions.

Today skiing at BRidger, i caught the singles line on the PK triple. I waited for maybe a min, but everyone coming in line was already triples. I realized i had been in line longer than the people coming in, so i skiied out in front of some folks and rode up alone. someone made some type of comment, but i really didnt hear it.

so what do you think? was i chislin'?

Technically yes, morally no. Was there a liftie around? Most areas I ski that have a singles line the liftie will notice if your getting badly screwed and take a group from the singles line.

No... I don't thinks thats chislin. Its when I am in line and some one skis in front or from the side. Its kind of a grey area and is usually (that is usually) done by locals who for some reason feel they should be in front of the people who aren't regulars. I have seen B.S. locals walk around the gondola line and blatantly cut in front of guests, when the guests complained they were told "tuff s%^t, we are locals". That is chiselin. I Liked a previous response that was very zen in its simplicity, they will get what they deserve.

everytime i see that i think "What The F*** Happened"...it can lead to some misunderstandings.

are freshies worth making an ass out of yourself? is that a trick question?

had some kid cut in front of me in line a couple days ago...i waited until we got to the top, blocked him from going down the hill, grabbed his arm, and confronted him: "i don't wanna see you cut in line again, ok?"

kid: "uhhhh.." *shrug shoulders*

me: "you understand me?"

kid: "uhh..." *red face*

me: "i asked you a question, punk"

kid: "yeah i guess."

didn't see him again that day....hm.....

if a snowboarder is sitting on his butt blocking the lift line ( as he undoes his boots) and I ski around him to get in the line, am I chiseling? :

no. not only are you not chiseling, you're morally bound to cut in front of him and knock him over when he tries to stand up.
