    Not disagreeing with that....just sayin'

    Get a group of 10-20 fast skiers and tear the mountain apart. Wear several layers so that you can quickly change your appearance at the bottom. It would be funny to also recruit a famous racer (e.g. Bode) to see how long he would last there before patrol called the state police. That would make for some interesting fireworks when they tell him he needs to "Ski in control" .

    Wow, getting hassled for skiing fast on a double diamond is outrageous.
    At Burke I can run down Blue trails Downhill Racer style and nobody says a thing. Of course Burke is home to A LOT of racers and the trails are relatively uncrowded, so patrol would really have their hands full keeping fast skiers under their fingers (not that anyone would even suggest such a policy).

    Note to any Blue Mountain managment that may be reading this. If I ever get a chance to ski at your mtn, I will not based on the reputation of your patrollers.

    P.S. I may ski there if it involves the shananigans mentioned above

    I hear ya! Hopefully you and I can get some turns in before the season ends.

    As far as shenanigans go...there are planned gaper days on the 14th and 21st...hint hint

    I might have to invest in a whistle..the patrollers don't like when I yell..."Slow Down" at them..lol..when they are doing the Pocono Shuffle..

    In all seriousness, I'm really considering going to Mountain Creek next year after how I was treated today. Hardline lives one town over from me and I'm sure we'd get in plenty of turns, and would save me a ton of cash.

    It basically cost me around $14 round trip in fuel to go to Blue for the day vs. $7.50 to hit Mountain Creek. Factor in a lower cost pass and I'm looking at saving around $425 a season. I'd probabily hit night skiing more often since it is so close to home and I'd be able to get more runs in since I'm spending less time driving. I could deal with MC for local skiing and use the extra cash to take more trip to New England areas.

    Last day of the season get all the passholders from PSAR to have a "Lets Lose Our Pass Day". No big deal if they yank your pass on the last day of the season. Everyone just bomb down Paradise till the last pass is pulled. To make it interesting the last person to get their pass yanked has to buy the first round of beer.

    you have got to be kidding me! those kids didn't do a thing!. listen i've posted here before about cheeseheads bombing the greendots on a saturday at mountain creek within inches of my beginner daughter. that i think is one thing, but this video shows nothing! especially the last guy! i'd like to ski blue but now i don't know. what a downer it must be to put up with these nazi's. you ski all day have a great time, aggressivly ski a certain section with no harm to anyone and that bulls__t ensues. do you need to pay for that? does your blood pressure? steeze come to creek during the week no crowds and no idiot redcoats. what a ego trip their on, wow.
    so here's a toast with one last pour, to last forever and a minute more. may fortune sing to you her song, to live and love way past long, may you live and love way past long. sonny landreth.

    I'm really thinking about making the switch to MC after today. I told my wife what had happened, and she's the one who actually suggested the idea and she friggin HATES Mountain Creek. On her 1st time there, she got hit twice. Little did we know but it was Boy Scout day there....you can picture how that can be like. Although I suspect that she's in favor of the idea so we vacation more in NE
