    Pet Peeve of the Day

    I am fortunate enough to ski at an area that seldom has lift lines. But the one drawback is the number of people who feel compelled to go right up to the loading point and then wait for their friends, or wait for a host of other reasons. I don't mind if they linger a few feet back, but they never waive you on and they just expect you to go around them while they are parked where you need to be.

    That's up there with the people who think they can claim a table at the lodge with their bags...although many ski areas have changed their policies to prevent this.

    i did it once this past weekend.. nobody in line so i moved down and then a crowd showed up before my crew did.

    personally i HATE when they (the lift attendants) pull a full chair or more out of the singles line.
    shit happens, wear a helmet.

    hahha, this is one of the bad things about having little to no lift lines.

    My local hill has this problem and it is quite annoying, I've had people try to stop me from going in front of them, but they were still waiting for people behind me.

    Sometimes people don't seem to realize that the chairs are going up if you are there or not, so let the people who are ready go!

    Had someone do this the other day at Pats and I think they were texting the other people to see where they were.

    I'm a little surprise that they're not already evacuating the lodge and sending in robots to inspect unattended bags. Guess I spend too much time in airports and subways.

    Waiting at the head of the line happens ALL the time. It's absolutely infuriating

    What are you guys saying? that they are blocking your way? Or are they entirely stopping the line? At all the places I ski at, those that wait are pretty courteous about staying back, against the ropes so others can get by.
