Thread Starter 
ok so if you are a skier/boarder who stops in a blindspot of the middle of the trail or goes down the entire hill scraping off powder this post is not for you....

what i am interested in is a complete compendium if you will...of all the "insiders guide to X" that the skiing magazines publish. plus some of our own knowledge. what i intend to create is a "holly grail" of skiing in the US. lets start with CO as thats where im starting my treks this year (vail copper key breck arap boat) And since I am sure this will probably come up I am drinking scotch.....THANKS!!!

Ok so i still want to rant.....does anyone feel that they are above the lift lines that hault so people can feel safe getting on the lift? yes im an *******. on the other side will perfect information cause the information to be non valauble or will most of the smucks not read it anyway.....o well good luck and god bless this season my wonderful bretheren

Here's a gem for your insider's guide.....

My favorite secret stash of all time is at censored ski area. Take the censored lift up to the censored peak. Then head to the censored just past the entrance to the censored trail. Keep going slightly censored-hill to the censoredth break in the trees. You'll know what to do from then on.

This one liftie at a local mountain is hyper over zealous, it's pretty funny actually. She always does the hands out "stop" motion and then the wave forward move, regardless of time of day, number of skiers, whatever. most of the other lifties just bump the chair unless its crowded with stupid (school ski club night, Presidents week break, just after xmas, etc). This is by no means mtn policy.

One day midweek at like 1pm, 10 people total on the hill, at least 15 empty chairs went by before I hopped up the "line". She pulls the halt, wave motion (I had taken at least 5 runs already by this point), I turned at her and said "thanks and all, but i do know how to ride a lift".


She also pulled the "please triple up", when the line was at max three chairs deep and excluding myself everyone was already a triple. I asked if I should wait for two other riders while empty chairs went by.

I guess if you read a manual on being liftie and have no common sense, this is what happens.

At my favourite little ski area, Censored, they went and put a couple of new lifts in so that a lot of the hike-to runs are now lift-serviced and on the trail map.

Here's two routes you might be able to find if you can guess the area.

The easier route, Take the censored lift at Mt. Censored. At the top of the lift turn left and just past the rope you have a nice bit of close to 90 degree vertical that lets you scrape your elbows as you go by a few trees. You can use a tree-well to help manage the first turn. Veer left or you will end up on beginner runs.

Take the same censored lift, only continue straight for a stones throw and then turn right down the sort of cliff into censored bowl. There may be some trees to avoid. It is currently marked off as back country unpatrolled. Again veer left, or you will end up cross-country skiing across Censored lake.

I wondered what type of binge the alias denoted. I’m now fairly certain I have the answer
