For this weeks post I will be talking about how skiers can really get to me. Since Weds my friends and I have been at a condo that my family has in Snowshoe, West Virginia. When we got there it was a little rough because of all of the snow but we pushed threw because when we would get there the trails would be amazing!
But anyways back to the stupid skiers. Thursday when we woke up around ten we got showered, dressed, ate, then headed out on the trails (which I'd like to add is out the back door). For the first couple days there wasn't too many people on the mountain since it was during the week but I knew that once Friday hit it would get packed and have long lines and such. Saturday morning we wake up around the same time as usual and get ready, when we hit the slopes there were so many people on the trials! And as a snowboarder it is hard to go along the straight aways when there are skiers just stopped in the middle of the trial.
One of my friends actually ran in to someone that got into their way because there were one of two things done, 1. couldn't go anywhere and 2. he thought of WWJD (What Would Justin Do?). So the skier got all pissed off and started yelling at us but then we came back and told him to get off the trials if he doesn't know mountain etiquette. So then we went to the terrain park where there shouldn't be any dumb skiers. But noooooooo people take their kids down it so they can jump off the sides of set ups. Which doesn't just mess up a persons run but it also messes up the set up too.
Stupid skiers are the new people that don't know what they are doing and mess everything on the mountain up and thats how people get hurt. They don't just mess up snowboarders but they also mess up other skiers that actually know what they are doing. Which is why they should make it so beginner skiers learn etiquette and have to stay at a certain part of the mountain before they can go places they are made to be at.
