Stop Right There, Not

  As an ex ski patroller, I've seen far too many people pissed off at each other for standing right where people exit the chairlift. I was constantly telling people to move out of the way. It's rude, and someone sometimes gets hurt, because a beginner barrels into the first object they come upon. Spread the word, to move it on over. It only takes a second to move 20 feet. Now, I understand boarders have a little different problem, but they have to move out of the way too. There's just no other way, and a ski patroller will come along and move the person anyway. It's just less embarrassing when it's your own decision.

  Thank you for being courteous, and ski safely out there.
