Pet Peeves? I'm really laid back, so not much bothers me on Mt.
When it comes to Newbees, or those who really don't know any better, it does not bother me to wait a while, get knocked around a little, stepped on, hit on the head, questioned where to find local stashes...etc,etc. Most say their sorry if they screw me and thats alright by me. And I don't flip the F out, if someone scraches the top sheet of my "new boards". I'm sure to do it enough later & maybe it's a favor, a little beat & I don't need to worry so much about snatches.
I try to have "newest & best equipment" money can buy, evey now and again I buy a "$8 burger" (very hungover days)...when it's a slow day, maybe I'll wait and try grab for an empty chair (...Alone)...I like to take the day as it comes, I don't try to push as many vert as possible (i find a little Pow almost every day)...I duck ropes all day long (alone)& ski OB, because it's legal & I know what I'm doiing...I enjoy the sight & sounds of blown dry hair spendex ladden chixs in the bar, I think it's GREAT to see people having a good time...i like that smell that skibum locals have, I don't complain about prices (I have my pass and a few bucks in my pocket)it's not like they make the stuff I use, I've had complete Gapers buy me drinks, take me to dinner & on occasion home, I'm not to proud to ask where something is, When I'm done, I slip my pass under my shirt...I care if a Newbee boarder is in over-their-head, not, if thier taking my line...If I see a sweet ride, I don't knock the people, I admire the ride...I try to get out of the harms way & have a smoke...some might think that: I drink too much...ski too much...sleep with too much...ski too fast in trees...should'nt ski there alone...living in a 300 sq foot cabin is crazy, BUT I love to take people places they'd never go unless someone like me showed them, I really don't care if they tell someone, I have FUN & I can get in some great turns. I really like Patrol, Instructors, Racers and Boarders. I have had some GREAT days in the rain, I ski with or without a helmet, sometimes i nod hello & listen to music all the way to the top & down again, sometimes I wake up have a smoke(y) and drink a beer...after all it's just another day on the hill...
Pet Peeves? Not me, i'm pretty laid back, Man
