    Anyway, I don't know if anyone else noticed this: Between the 11 and 14 second mark, the skier continues on down the trail past the speed trap and effortlessly carves around a snowboarder who is sitting on the ground. However, a member of the over-eager pursuit group (looks to be a guy filming on a snowboard) proceeds to run into said seated boarder! Who's being the danger to others on the slopes here? The guy who can apparently ski rather well and is not displaying ANY problems with control or a posse of 4+ patrollers and their film crew escort standing in the middle of the trail?
    I have a feeling participating in this show has resulted in over-inflated patrollers' egos. Do they feel that real life needs to imitate a stupid reality show which likely has anything resembling common sense edited out of it?

    I think you've nailed it. Life imitating TV for the patrollers who didn't get any airtime. This problem has exacerbated since BMSP's 15 minutes of fame on TruTV. I've been skiing at Blue for the past 5 years and never witnessed anything like Joel yelling at GSS for skiing fast down Challenge. I've taken some questionable runs down Paradise and never been chased into the parking lot before. Heck, last year, I was skiing with a patroller for a bunch of runs, right before the mid-day grooming. He said to me, "Paradise is about to re-open, do you want to take the safety check run down it with me? So a bunch of other patrollers, myself and a few others did a super-highspeed run down right as the rope was dropped.

    Depending on how Blue responds to GSS, and myself on my next visit, I will be looking at taking my money, friends and family elsewhere next year.

    Those videos are a joke........as I would now categorize the whole mountain. However, the picture in my mind of pursuit patrollers with flashing lights on their helmets is quite amusing. We should all go there and play Smokey and the Bandit on skis............

    I can fully respect and appreciate slow / family zones, but telling someone to slow down on even a single diamond is laughable to me.

    Someone going 10 miles and hour who is out of control could be of far greater danger than someone going 50 who actually knows what their doing.

    naahh, on any given day i'd totally agree that some of the ski patrol at blue are outta hand with the keystone kopppers routine regarding slow skiing trails. like any other area most BMSP are good guys with a few exceptions that are multiplied by the whole truTV crap - brings out the worst in people.

    the only reason i chimed in at all is that there are definately two sides to the specific chain of events in this thread and as far as i'm concerned gss and ajeff deserve what ever they got coming to them for their actions on the mountain. i don't consider people that act the way they did to a patroller friend in front of my kids "buddies"... done - no flame war here. root sorta got caught in the crossfire - sorry, hope to get some more runs with ya man
