Well the we have read and seen the sign warning about the chair may go in reverse in a recent thread. What other signs have you seen or know about?

Canyons?


I do think have a pic of it, and no idea if it still exists, but growing up when I would go to Whiteface while riding a chair up to the top of Little Whiteface there was a sign that read "Experts get off here, beginners go to the top". That always made me laugh.

Not really a skiing sign (and unfortunately I have no picture) but in the base gondola station at Loon Mountain they have this riddle that is kind of written in code. Can't totally remember it, (Starts "When the B mt") but its fun to try and figure it out and it does make sense when translated.

If the grate B (Capital) empty put coal (colon) on ,if the Grate B full "Stop" (period) you'd be an ass (asterisk) to risk it.
