    On the other hand, the guy could have just stepped aside and let them pass.

    Ive never seen so many goretex wearing NE skiing hardos in my life. 4 inches of snow doesnt give you the right to run through people like bowling pins just so you can "get yours"........
    I don't want to discount your experience. However, these kind of posts crack me up. Your data subset is so small as to be statistically insignificant. Not to mention that your data set is subject to your feelings. I would counter your comments with, I regularly drive 90 minutes further north than I have to just to ski at SB for multiple reasons. One of them is that I find the skiers to be kind, courteous and talented. What does this show? It shows that it's easy to have the exact opposite experience when analyzing poor data.

    Do you think it's okay for someone who's acting like a jerk to get his way (aka passing the guy who was pushed)? There is no "on the other hand" when it comes to someone pushing down another person to get by. None. Maybe the guy should have stepped aside but that doesn't make the aggressors behavior acceptable.

    Agreed...I'm a 40+ day a year skier at SB (and from January-closing day those days are pretty much weekends only). I've rarely seen any rude behavior from the skiers at SB. I'm sure it happens from time to time (as it does probably at almost all major resorts), however the vast majority of skiers I've interacted with have been exactly as you describe. As for the specific incident mentioned in the previous post, if my memory serves me correct, that person was essentially banned from SB after that incident (and wasn't a passholder).

    I was actually there, literally behind these two, and your description is not what happened at all. Nobody got pushed down. Frankly the guy in front did not have his skis on and the guy behind did and was ready to go. The skiers that were waiting for friends were standing aside and the guy behind with his GF asked if he could pass and the guy in front said, "yes, I do mind, I was here first." To which the guy behind pointed out the other's skis were not on and tried make his way past. The first guy blocked his way, made a big fuss and put his skis on and went first.

    2 minutes later, the guy in front was complaining to patrol in the shack when the guy who tried to push past walked in and totally apologized. In the end the air was clear and all was good. Frankly, the guy who tried to get past totally took responsibility and was quite honorable.

    Probably, both guys acted out of character and regret the whole thing.

    Complaining to Patrol? Haha what a baby. Not seeing how this is the 2nd guyís fault. Whatís the harm in someone going first if youíre not ready?

    There is no denying there are plenty of people with the entitled, Godís gift to skiing attitude at Sugarbush, especially on a powder day. Now that I think of it, plenty of people on here have that attitude. Guess thatís why this thread gets so much action!
