    I only ski K late season, so I mostly associate it with weirdoes in costumes.

    Yup, and learning to ignore them is a skill worth developing. But, honestly, I've skied Killington for the past 25 years and I've never encountered many peeps with attitude, or the crowds so bad I wished I hadn't gone. Maybe I've been lucky. I certainly didn't see any fights or outright rude behavior. And now I predominately ski weekdays, so my chances are getting better I won't encounter any "hardos" at K.

    I guess he will be skiing at Hunter next season. Will fit right in

    The only place I have ever gotten an attitude to the point that it bothered me was at Jackson Hole. SOME locals act like they own the place and everyone else is an unwelcome guest. Killington never really stood out to me one way or another in terms of attitude.

    That's interesting to me...on my two trips to Jackson Hole, I remember marveling at how nice and polite everyone was. Although I expect the staff to be nice, I loved the mountain ambassadors at JH. So helpful and kind.

    Its the ski center of the universe bro.

    Jackson can feel real cold at first inspection but once youre in you make life long friends. Like a lot of resort towns they see a lot of people come and go so they dont greet everyone with open arms and its a bit of a proving ground. A mountain like that comes with tough people and thats what makes it what it is. What you are talking about though is likely more related to aggressive young men that are new to town and feeling the brunt of that local cold shoulder. The winters are long, woman are scarce and the competition is fierce!

    Anyways, if you think that was bad you should have seen the young lodge boys at Alta come spring back in the 90s. They were so backed up theyd go full rehtard.
