Unspoken rules of the mountain:
Every skier and snowboarder knows that there are certain unspoken rules about riding, things you should and should not do. Call them skiing faux pas, pet peeves, no-no’s, social norms, or whatever you like, these guidelines are sometimes universal and other times specific to a place or person.
So, I put together a list of some of the cultural faux pas of skiing and snowboarding.
What not to do:
1. Not clearing the exit ramp area off a chairlift. If you’re waiting for others, shifting your gear or just deciding where to go, move out of the way.
2. Wearing jeans while skiing. Come on people.
3. No stopping in the middle of the slope. Pull off to the side.
4. Throwing trash off the lift – disposable coffee cups, beer cans, cigarettes, etc.
