I think I dislike everyone on the lift, its always much more comfortable on your own, with nobody else on the lift. Sit back arms out wide, thinking how good is this, board at what ever angle you want, no noobs to try and grab you as they fall when getting off the lift.
The trick is to pretend to fall over in the line before you get on, then other people will avoid going with you, thinking your the noob, works every time.

When you're on the lift with little kids being really obnoxious and loud. Just shut the hell up already. And people smoking cigs right next to you.

I forgot my gloves once when riding up a chairlift. It was back when I first started boarding and felt like a real idiot. Definitely learned from that mistake.

I went boarding in France over New Years this year and cranky French instructors were pairing up kids in lessons with normal boarders and skiiers on two seat chairlifts. I understand that they wanted the kids to have supervision on the lifts, but it caused mayhem when the kiddies stacked it getting off and tried grabbing on to whoever was next to them, mostly pulling them down too. It wouldn't have been too bad except that the instructors at the top were yelling at the skiiers and boarders whose kiddie companion stacked it. Frustrating.

When you're on the lift and it totally stops. I'm actually more annoyed for the reason why it stops. Because people don't know how to get off the lift properly. Those people need to stay on the bunny slope until they know what they're doing.

People who ski or board over the back of your board in the lift line and the people who try to push past you to get in front really annoy me.

I think my biggest pet peeve with the lift is the people that decide to camp out 10 -15ft off the lift.  I expect to be able to coast off the lift without having to drag a foot or cut an edge to avoid a group of inconsiderate skiers and riders hobnobbing about total bullshit.

I hate it when people hit my board in the line to the lift. Boards are expensive and I don't want any unnecessary dings/chips from some impatient douchebag.

all the edge chips / dings on my boards are from other people in the lift line, it's the worst on pow days when everyone is pushing to get on first!

Someone incapable of getting on or off the lift is probably the most hated of them all but I really can't stand when you get a bunch of kidz on 4 person with you and not only are they hooting and hollering but their jumping all around and shaking the sh*t out of the chair. How am i supposed to drink my beer with all that shimmering?!

not particularly irritated by beginners falling over. After all everyone was a beginner once and did the same.
but what does is... when people get off the lift and slide to a gradual stop right in the middle and not moving on. (just moving a a further 2-3 metres makes a huge difference)

But the most irritating thing is definitely when really windy and there's no wind shield to pull over.
