Re: NY signs o' safety....

I've heard that the patrol at Bellayre is beyond ridiculous.  Closely followed by the patrol at Gore.

I've never had any experience with Belle patrol, so I couldn't say.

I'd had 95% good experience with Gore Patrol.

What have you heard?

Maybe they are sign heavy, but I never see them bothering anyone. They all seem very professional but with a great laid back vibe.

I dont blame them for the signage, they can get a lot of beginners at the top of the ridge

Re: NY signs o' safety....

That can't be real. ROFL!

According to Mr. Bradley’s lawyer, a Denver based attorney, “we see this type of thing all the time. A novice from Colorado goes up to Wyoming to ski with a friend. The friend tells him there is nothing wrong with his skiing ability. In actuality, he knows that his friend grew up in Alabama and sucks at skiing.”

Although Mr. Bradley declined to comment on the ongoing lawsuit against his friend Mr. Powell, Ted Powell was reached for comment at the Hostel X, speaking somberly while sipping a Pabst Blue Ribbon beer.

“I feel bad for Chad. He busted up his leg up pretty good but It’s like ‘hey dude, I didn’t make you follow me over here but you did. So hop over those rocks and arc some GS turns before the groomer’.” All the while Powell gestured using a flat hand moving side to side to mimic the maneuvers Chad should have executed that day. The attorney later replied to these comments saying:

When asked about negligence, Mr. Powell responded, “NEGLIGENCE!? He asked me to show him around on a POW day… A POW DAY! And if it were anybody else I would have ditched him, lapped the Tram, and maybe shredded a few Rock Springs laps. Instead, I put on my nice guy hat and took him to do a mellow Paintbrush.”

According to eyewitness accounts, Mr. Bradley was standing on top of the prominent cliff section, when he removed his University of Alabama beanie and realized his goggles had fogged and frozen while dangling around his perspiring neck. After putting on his goggles, his vision seemed to be impaired by 98% but his face showed resolve. Giving his buddy Ted a closed fist “pound,” Mr. Bradley turned and asked Ted to take some “footy.” With the camera on, Mr. Bradley turned his tips downhill, immediately lost control, and was unable to self-arrest. On the way down, Mr. Bradley hit rocks, ice, and moguls until he came to a stop on Upper Amphitheater. Reports indicate that Mr. Powell was laughing loudly until Mr. Bradley’s slide came to an end.

“The first thing I thought was ‘man what a good digger’.” said Mr. Powell “but then I realized he wasn’t moving and I could hear him screaming in agony.”

Ski Patrollers were the first on the scene besides Powell.

After stabilizing his leg, the patrollers lifted him into a sled, when Chad said “see you at the clinic buddy” to which Ted responded, “Well I just got a text from Joe and we’re going do a quick Four Pines… I’ll see you at the Moose.”

The lawsuit is ongoing and seeks to reimburse the victim for all medical charges as well as compensate Mr. Bradley for defamation of character. The defamation allegedly occurred after the fact at the Mangy Moose Saloon, where Ted publicly stated that Chad hurt himself  “by tomahawking through some pretty easy shit.”

Never had an issue with Patrol at Belle, and I can't remember ever seeing them hassle any one on the mountain.

I've entered clearly marked closed glades right in front of patrol at Belleayre and they didn't even as much turn their heads to notice me.
