Dude, by definition, you were out of control if you can't avoid some one in front of you. ESPECIALLY on Schoolmarm. If ever there was some one who needed a safety lesson, it's YOU!

The original subject seems like it is really only a joke but...

The only way for someone to really cut you off is to scream past you and then turn sharply infront of you.

Otherwise if they are downhill of you they have the right of way and are at liberty to take as much of the slope to turn as they want to.... You can not expect them to anticipate or have eyes in the back of their head.

I say this because i have a 4 year old who is learning how to ski and just as soon as some person hits her and claims she cut them off i will beat their ass bloody.

Just for future reference....
If you argue with Patrol the most likely outcome will be that which you have experienced. If you are reasonable and acknowledge the patrollers concerns and ask for forgiveness (as simple as "I'm Sorry") you will most likely only be warned, especially if there was no accident.

Joke? Right?

Haven't we learned enough from our political leaders?? the "it's all their fault, not mine" mentality is extremely dangerous, not to mention LAME. Brandon, I hope your selfish attitude never puts anyone else in harm's way. I also hope that you never get on the river with that mentality. If you are a boater I feel sorry for your crew. I am still not sure if this is just a joke or not.

Joe K you are not OK! I was totally in control, and if I wasn't as good as I am that guy woulda been creamed but the fact is I was in control the whole time. I think losing my pass for a week is kinda weak, and I've gotta attend a safety class to get it back. WEAK!!! Schoolmarm is wide, open, and built 4 speed!!

Let er Fly!

Silly Patrolers, lucky I let you catch me at all...

I too am an exceptionally excellent rider and I feel your pain.

The other day I was going for the guiness book record for extreme snowboarding on a green groomer. Some little punk ass 5 yr old got in my way, and if it weren't for that little crumb crunching punk, I would have the record.

Me and my boys waited in the parking lot to jump him, but his dad was BIG, so we bailed to go play nintendo, drink mountain dew, and jump off the roof. If I ever see that little 5 yr old punk without his dad, he's in big trouble.

For my next stunt I'm gonna drink a 12 pack of mountain dew, put a pack of firecrackers in my ass, and do a 360 over my dads garage off a huge kicker that me and my boys made after shoveling my dads sidewalk for $5.

If you want my autograph, look for me on the slopes. I'm about 4'11", sport camo pants around my knees with a radical spiked belt, got a red bandana and my hat cocked to the right, and I wear my sponsors shirt "Big League Chew" over my jacket. I got mad volume on my 6" speaker headphones, so you best speak up if you want to get noticed.
