Im not a fan of random people swearing infront of you, its alright when your with your mates who might not take offence but when people swear infront of people they don't know, I don't like it, and it's not needed. Use substitute swear words, that's what I do, makes me look like an idiot, but atleast its not offending anyone.

People in the lift in front smoke so the smell comes to you
People that make the lift stop cause they fell off
When the power goes out, happened to me once, pretty funny though

I think the worst thing is when you get paired up with two hot girls, and one looks significantly older than the other so you comment, "..are you two mother and daughter?..." and the older one gets mad because it turns out that they are sisters and the younger, cuter one is flattered and trying not to smile but won't talk to you because her sister is pissed.

I can kinda get over it in a crowded lift.. but when the lift has hardly anyone in line and people are still banging their board or skis against my board, it frustrates me. I didn't mind much when I had an old board, but you notice it a lot more when you have a new board.

- people riding over your deck in line. seriously, wtf
- stop/starting the whole way up
- that creepy guy from the singles line
- strangers that want to be BFF's by the top of the mountain. I don't mind small talk but I don't want or need to hear your life story nor do I feel like sharing mine
- when the staff either screws up or doesn't care & they're blowing snow THROUGH THE LIFT. Even had the lift stop once while we were in it, a good minute sitting there just covering our faces as best as possible until we started to move again. Sucked then but pretty funny now I suppose

Awkward conversation... like when you don't know the people on your chair and they are having a private conversation and you can hear it cos you're right next to them, or when they are having a domestic about how he didn't help her with her lessons and how this makes her feel.... omg THE PERSON NEXT TO YOU CAN HEAR DERRRR!!!

What annoys me is people swearing outloud to be cool, it just makes them look like an idiot. I say if you need to say something, say it with your skill, not your large vocabulary. Also the ski lift stopping every ten seconds gets pretty annoying after a while.

when i drop my gloves..
or when you are paired up with a group of asses, and they occasionally will try to tell you how good they are and then you see them bail on some of the easiest jibs on the mountain, and then if you see them again, they will lie and tell you what sick trick they just did

I hate it when three of you get on a chair, and the other two are some newly born relationship where the bloke is big talking himself about how friggin good he is, and trying to impress the girl by lying about all the countries he's boarded or skiid in (show your passport then fool!). He has that over eager laugh that is way too loud, and doesn't stop talking about how he is going to take her to the pub later for dinner and a few drinks. I just want to turn to her and say "What are you doing with this toss bag? He will get you drunk, probably try cracking onto several other girls at the bar aswell, and then tell all his mates about you and the weekend after he has everything he wants from you."
Ouch

Sure it's annoying, but it's hilarious to see people fall! LOL

I find it annoying when I'm trying to throw a snowball at my friends in the chair behind me and I continuously miss!

People not stopping when coming into the lift line, skis and boards getting slapped onto my board when people flick snow off, lifties not paying attention.
People falling over when getting off is annoying but we all started somewhere

When there is an extra room on the chair and one person on the group behind thinks he can get onto the earlier chair, runs up, and knocks you down, making YOU miss the chair

One of the worst things is riding with a bunch of weird people that try to talk to you. I also hate when I have music in and people are trying to talk to me so i have to try and stop my music and by the time that is over the lift ride is over. Lastly i hate when i ride with goofy riders when i ride regular.

Really depends on the design of the chairs and how well the operators are maintaining the area - I hate when there are crazy peaks and troughs just to get through the zigzag of ropes.

Also, when people grab onto you on the way off and being stuck in an awkward knee position between skiiers.

when people hit your board when your waiting in line, when people complain when u pull the safety bar up too fast(if the fools wanna use it, or if there's kids), and the biggest piss off is when some noob takes everyone out coming off the lift and is the only one still standing riding away

fatties who take up the whole seat on a double, and ret@rded people in line who constantly scrape up my board with their boards/skis. Seriously, how hard is it to just stand still? Also when the chair is too low when loading/unloading. folding down my hiback works though
