    Hand them out to everyone with a red jacket! That should cause some confusion.

    Love the whistle routine Steeze . Rooter go someplace else who needs that BS !

    Here's a thought IF any Blue Mtn mgt is eavesdropping :
    PUT BLUE MOUNTAIN ON A PERMANENT AZ BOYCOTT -- lets spread the word to all our skiing brethern and sisters that Bozo's on SP are OUT of Control with their nonsense .
    Surround yourself with Positivity , Live Life , Collect Friends not Stuff and Avoid Negative Nuts

    I am so freaking tired..2nd night in a row I didn't get much sleep..today would be the perfect day to take a rest day after skiing the 11 out of the last 12 days but I really need to see if my pass will scan..I'm parking at the top lodge so if my pass doesn't scan, I'm right by the Administrative offices..even if my pass scans..I'm definitely filing a complaint against the ski patroller Joel..I don't get offended easily but the way he talked to me yesterday was just wrong.

    Can you guys give me some advice on how I should approach the management at Blue mountain??? I want to be very polite and considerate but would like to get my point across. I really hope they give me 10 minutes and actually listen to me as opposed to the ski patrollers who just talk over me and get flustered. I just want to get this resolved so I can go on with my life.

    Think of it as negotiating. The guy that goes first loses. Ask to speak to someone knowledgeable about fast speeding policies. Pump them for all the information you can.
    At some point, they will want to know why you are asking all these questions. Keep it simple, explain that a patrol indicated you were going too fast and that you don't understand.

    Better to not start a debate until you have all the facts. Also shows that you are listening to them. Start by trying to understand. Try not to attack, you will get much farther. Then explain how you are a long time customer, blah blah.

    oh good god. it sounds like the rent-a-cop/mall security attitude.

    they really should ski around with lights on their helmets. I wouldnt last 1 hour there.

    man, that is a whole 'nother level. I don't know how you guys put up with that. All the safety meetings in the world wouldn't keep me calm over that sh*t. Someone needs to send Blue mountain a link to this thread.

    Hold nothing back.You paid your money you are a club member.
    I am most certain you've logged in more time than the weekend patrolers. How fast you ski is something for you to decide not someone whom skiis below your ability. A good skiier will know when and where to check speed.If management still has a problem,you might as well tell them to remark all the trails with little green circles and only allow snow skates.

    Well my man our ski hills have become never ever trainers. You can roll into any Pa area with the exception of Elk and count the talent on one hand......including the so called pros.
    GSS I'm really thinking of heading north for the season next year. I watched a member of our Ranger patroll giving a ticket to a 9 yr.old litlle girl as her parents stood and watched. Had there been people on the trail I could have understood but there was no one there except the family and the toolbag in the yellow coat.

    The thread over on www.paskiandride.com has over 110 responses and 1400 views...all because of one inexperienced Volunteer ski patroller..pretty bad for Blue's reputation..
