I figured something out today, and all our discussions figured into my epiphany.
The guys that cut lift lines, snake ski lines, traverse under you, and cut you off are not inexperienced, or slow, or unaware skiers at all. They are just a$#holes. They would be rude if you were on a road trip with them, rude in a resteraunt, rude driving their truck, rude in line for a concert. They are unpleasant, rude guys all the time, and no surprise they are not interested in working together with other skiers to have a great day. They are almost always guys in their mid twenties with crappy, rude lives whatever they are doing all year long. It's not about skiing knowlege. It's about life knowlege and supporting good energy on a great ski day.
And we know how to do just that.
