Rather than busting on them, keep a repoire with them. We know who you are, where you live what you like to do, that stuff. Work with them people!

    I learned a long time ago that I hate being an enforcer - I'm real bad at it. Get some "ambassadors" to do this sort of stuff and let patrol do what they are trained to do, drop ropes (er, uh, save lives.).

    Or, maybe, GSS just wants to be on TV
    As far as community policing, I have a perfect solution for that that I wrote on my "notes" for the meeting before you posted that, but the community policy is a good analogy.

    I don't know why but looking at that picture reminded me of Eddie Murphy in Raw, making the siren noise and saying, 'Pull ovah, pull ovah'

    Back at Blue tonight for some night skiing. About 15 runs in, my zipper on my jacket kinda falls off the track, so I took 1 run off, to try to fix it. I sit down on the bench at the top of the six pack and just out of randomness, I ask the other guys hanging around the bench if anyone had a leatherman on them. Stroke of luck, one of the guys did. Then he also offers me a beer and a shot of vodka. Naturally, I accepted. He offered me a Vicoden as well, but I passed on that. So we got to talking, and they guy asks me if I've had any run-ins with the ski patrol. So I start telling them the whole story, as well as put in a plug for PASR.com. So then the guy start telling me how he got yelled at for skiing fast down challenge, so don't feel bad GSS, you're not the only one. They didn't get chased off the mountain however.

    Skied with Toast, GSS, SnoSkier and Zaldon tonight. Mountain was a ghost town. No speed traps on Paradise and the snow was super fast. I got 22 runs in.

    Man... and I thought the patrollers at Wachusett went nuts on Conifer. I've been yelled at there for doing short snappy turns down the side... they are fast turns which apparently gave them the impression that I was skiing fast or something. Just last week I got yelled at for skiing about 50 feet down the mountain road from Smith, going down a little side trail to the next section of mountain road, and back onto the trail. At no point did I go out of sight or earshot of Smith, but I got an earful by the patroller when I got back. "If you got hurt no one would see you and you'd piss us off if we had to come find you... go over there again and you're done for the month."

    Man I can't wait to get away from there. Nor do I ever want to go find out what it's like having these guys running around with WHISTLES!?!?
