Thread: Rack em!

  1. #11
    I'm thinking that cluster is safer than kids racking their skis , seen plenty pairs slide off and fall cause the persons too much in a hurry to make sure they are in right. If at least they had some order with rows would'nt be too bad.

    ps I don't fling em just kick some snow on ala Billy Martin

    Nice. "Accidentally" stepping on the skis with hard soled boots is another satisfying way of disrespecting the entitled ppl who park skis like that. Though I'll admit I sometimes get conflicted and feel bad for the skis. "It's not my fault" they say sometimes.

    I tell my kids that I will lock their skis in my car if they leave them on the ground.

    It's one thing if the racks are completely full, but clearly they weren't in this case.

    Not shocking. The parents are often worse than and more entitled than the kids these days.

    Race at the mountain today and all the racers just dumped their skis wherever. Mountain Ops should have done some surprise afternoon grooming.

    Looks about right. Several thousand dollars and hours of hard work tuning to just dump them on the ground.

    up at Mount Ellen on particularly egregious days they will send the ambassadors out to pick them up and randomly put them on the racks. nothing like a little scavenger hunt to find your skis to discourage the behavior

    This drives me nuts as well, although it isn't just racers. I plenty of non-racers doing this all the time even when racks are half empty. Last year at Mt Ellen Sugarbush specifically had signs at the base telling people not to leave their skis on the ground. At one point they even had staff picking them up and moving them into racks, although I don't know whether they kept up with doing that.

    LOL. Two of us decided to post almost the same thing at almost the exact same time. That's impressive.

    They should move them inside at owners expense like an illegally parked car, or bring up the quad, throw all the skis in a quad and leave really far from the lodge.
