Snowboarders.

Hey all you snowboarders..If it's hard pack or a bit icy stay the fuck off the mountain..

I was hit from BEHIND by a boarder on a totally empty slope at Hunter on Saturday..It blew me out of my skis and unbuckled my boots..My ribs are killing me this morning..

Re: Snowboarders.

Glad you are OK but don't you think you should change your post title to include skiers, telemarkers and snowbladers?

Anyone can take out anybody if they are out of control. I was hit from behind on an empty slope out in a similar fashion by a skier a few years ago, and a snowblader started the chain of events that led to the destruction of my ACL.

Re: Snowboarders.

Did he say he was sorry? Seriously. I have had a few encounters when I have been standing over some dork splayed on the hill, and, my standard phrase at that point is, "Two words. I just want two words". Believe it or not, I didn't hear those two words, twice. Amazing. I mean, do these kids have mothers? You know, we all make mistakes and screw up, every now and then (Benny less than most, of course), but, a little apology goes a long way.

Re: Snowboarders.

She did apologize and her friends collected my yard sale..

she was shaken too, she asked what she should do. I told to get off the board and put on skis..

Of course I could have been taken out by a skier too, but i have a disdain for boarders .

Oh man bad karma.  I'm at Hunter with X today and I just clocked a snowboarder kid and her mom.

Patrol clipped my ticket.  Guess I'm heading home.

I don't know. Killington, certainly. But, the last time I was at Hunter, I was in three collisions. Seriosuly. Saturday, of course.

Wait a minute: you were hit by a woman, who was upset by the incident, apologized, whose friends helped get your stuff together and all you can do is make a smart-assed remark to her and then bitch about it on-line? Have a little charity.
